There are various boat trips that go to Comino and Blue Lagoon, most of them depart from the north of Malta. If you want to experience the clearest water you will ever see, look no further than Blue Lagoon.

The south of Malta is extraordinary. Facing Valletta are three beautiful fortified towns known as the Three Cities: Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua. Taking a boat trip is the best approach to witness the beauty of the towns.
Marsaxlokk is Malta’s fishing village and it is one of the most picturesque scenes on the island. There are a number of boat trips that you can take across the village. If you want to experience this village at its best, Sundays are the best days to do so since there’s the traditional fish market.
Launching from the spectacular bay of Wied iz-Zurrieq, this boat trip to Blue Grotto is the definition of experiencing the island at its best. Boat trips are regular here and they will take you to a series of caves which glow against the Mediterranean blue sea.
