Beautiful Crystal Clear Waters Jul 31, 2009
I have graded the cost of this attraction as free as it is an area of natural beauty,however, you will have to pay a fee to get here by ferry or boat trip.
The Blue Lagoon is situated off the coast of Comino which is a small island between Malta and Gozo. Accessible either by ferry or boat trips from mainland Malta or Gozo.
We arrived early afternoon and I have to say the sheer beauty of the place can not be put into words. The water is so clear, so blue that you can see the white sand on the sea bed. The coastline is also littered with various sized caves.
We visited in the height of summer and the only downside to this was the vast numbers that had descended on this beautiful place. The flat rocks were completely taken over with deckchairs & parasols. The tiny strip of white sand was virtually invisable, and there was also a small refreshment van perched high above on one of the cliff faces.
The water is shallow enough for small children to paddle in but obviously the further out you go the deeper the water gets. The perfect place to snorkle and cool off in.
We enjoyed a couple of relaxing hours here once we had found a space to sit.
Would highly recommend a visit to Blue Lagoon, I only hope that it does not get over commercialised as on the way back to our boat whilst walking past several small rock pools some tourists had neglected to take their plastic bottles and rubbish back with them.

A Maltese must-see! Jan 21, 2009
Hidden away on one of Malta's surrounding small islands, The Blue Lagoon is based on the island of Comino. If you're visiting Malta, I recommend this as a must-see. The Blue Lagoon is a cave-like structure, based between Gozo and Malta. Easily reachable by coach journey or by car, for a relatively small price, Comino is one of Malta's smallest islands.
Due to the crystal-clear quality of the blue water, The Lagoon attracts many enthusiasts of snorkling/diving etc. If you are a diver/snorkler yourself, this is a great way to see The Lagoon. But to get the most relaxing 'Lagoon' experience, I reccommend taking one of the small boats from the ticket office minutes away from the Lagoon itself. The boats are relatively small, and seat approximately 8-10 people, so the boat ride remains a tranquil and quiet experience, throughout. The traditionally painted boats are manned by friendly Maltese locals and there's a boat ride approximately every 10-15 minutes at busy periods, as there are only a small number of boats.
The Lagoon boat trip takes visitors around surrounding caves, and then to the Lagoon itself. Everybody on the boat trips are welcome to take as many photographs as they'd like, and as the journey unfolds passangers are informed about the caves and the lagoons formation, along with other interesting facts about the area.
Near The Lagoon and ticket office, is a small cafe, gift and jewellery shop/tackle shop. Opportunity for refreshments is easily obtained, and there are many places to sit and enjoy the sunshine in Comino. The boat trip is relatively inexpensive, and a worthwhile experience.
Please note, to get to the Lagoon/boats passengers have to walk down a short (but kind of steep) walk way, and must be able to step from the side of the walk way, onto the boat. Although the local people who man the boats are happy to help you into (and out of) the boats, those who have some difficulty doing such might find it hard.
Overall, The Lagoon is easy to find, and obtaining a trip to The Lagoon is easy and stress free. For a small charge, trips are available at very regular intervals. Help is friendly, and refreshments/toilets are nearby, just two minutes walk from the Lagoon-trip pick-up area. In my opinion, it is an unforgettable experience not to be missed!
