Diving in Malta is one of the best in Europe with famous diving spots such as Gozo and famous dives such as Blue Hole and UM El Faroud shipwreck. Malta is a great destination for scuba divers who love wreck diving and shore diving. A little less known, you can also give a try at diving in near the capital city of Valletta.
The marine life in Malta is mostly about scorpionfish, moray eels, seabreams, fireworms and nudibranchs. It’s the right place to go for both beginners and experienced divers. Due to the water temperatures, regarding scuba gear, it is most common to scuba dive there in a 5 mm wetsuit. The best time of the year is often from July to October, but the Maltese islands can be dived year-round. The best dive sites can be reached from the shore.
