Local Recommendations

Malta is a fantastic diving location, with something for everyone. Blue calm water with lots of options for wrecks and reefs. However, the island has lots to offer for the dry days as well as the dive days. With 3 beautiful walled cities to explore at Valetta, Mdina and Victoria (Gozo) there is plenty to keep you busy here. 

However, we thought we would pass on some information around our local area

Wignacourt Tower

Our dive centre is located right to one of the oldest surviving watch tower in Malta. Wignacourt Tower was built in 1610 to help protect the island of Malta from invasion. The tower is now open on selected days during the week as a museum and well worth a quick visit. A beautiful spot to walk around as the sun sets. These defensive towers can be spotted throughout the island (for example, the red tower can be seen on the way to Cirkewwa).

Xemxija Heritage Trail

Only a short bus journey away from our dive centre is the Xemxija Heritage Trail (ideal if you are staying in Xemxija!). This walk includes Roman wall ruins, prehistoric standing stones, old templates, cart ruts and Roman apiaries. A great way to get away from the busier tourist spots and see the nature here in Malta.

 Qawra Point

One of our favourite walks in the local area is along the promenade from St Pauls Bay, Bugibba to Qawra Point. Along the war you'll pass lots of ice creams stands, bars, restaurants, the aquarium and a view of the Island of St Pauls Bay. Qawra Point is a beautiful point and perfect for sunbathing, swimming and a gentle scroll. With public toilets and a cafe its a great local spot. It's also one of our local dive sites as well.

Bars and Restaurant

If you fancy a meal out, a drink by the sea or a cafe to watch the world go by, St Pauls Bay, Bugibba and Qawra have plenty to offer for everyone. With food from all corners of the world or local cuisine. A must have when here in Malta is trying the local pastizzi. 

Where near our dive centre we have a kiosk nearby that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner overlooking the sea. They also do take away sandwiches, drinks and snacks - perfect for a dive day.
