Blue Lagoon Malta: Boat Trips & 10+ Tips Before You Go

The Blue Lagoon Malta is a small bay with relatively shallow, azure-coloured water located on the West coast of Comino island, between Malta and Gozo.

Visiting Malta’s Blue Lagoon offers one of the most spectacular sights around the Maltese islands, attracting hundreds of tourists daily during the busy summer months. It’s without a doubt the biggest attraction that brings people to Comino during that time of year.

It’s a great place to spend a day relaxing, swimming and snorkelling and the views never tire. However , this place gets  BUSY in summer (July-September), and your best bet is taking a boat trip there later in the day or going early in the morning . (More on that further below!).

On this page, you’ll learn everything you need to know about whether, how and when best to visit the Blue Lagoon Malta.

Blue Lagoon Malta tours

How to get to Malta’s Blue Lagoon

There are two popular ways you can get to the Blue Lagoon:

1) Boat trips and tours

Taking a boat trip to the Blue Lagoon in Malta is by far the most popular and comfortable option, with many opting to take an organised boat trip from one of the tourist hotspots (usually Sliema and Buġibba, Qawra and St. Paul’s Bay) and spending a day (or afternoon) there.

Food and drinks are usually available on board, the cost is somewhere between €25-35 per person, and you can get a transfer to/from the departure point to/from your place of stay easily.

Good to know about this option:

  • Day trips and cruises usually only run  between April and October , depending on the demand. At the busiest part of the year, operators usually also offer a sunset cruise (which I highly recommend)
  • Operators offer different types of boats. Generally speaking, the cheaper the ticket, the busier the boat .
  • Most operators offer easy online booking and full refunds if, for example, the weather conditions on the day mean that trips must be cancelled.
  • Since capacity on most of these boat trips is limited , it pays to plan and buy tickets online in advance .

Recommended Boat Tours to visit the Blue Lagoon

Here are a few recommendations for boat tours to take you there.

TIP:  All boat tour providers offer an option to pick you up from your place of accommodation (usually at a surcharge).

Private boat charters

You can get a private boat charter for you and your travel companions at different times of the day. Although it’s not the cheapest method, you have a lot more flexibility and it’ll be a much quieter experience away from the crowds. The tried-and-tested operator for private charters is I Malta Boat Trips – You can charter one of their boats to spend 2-6 hours at Comino or combine it with a longer cruise around Gozo. Highly recommended!

Regular boat tours departing from Buġibba/St. Paul’s Bay:

The best tour operator in this area is an excellent choice for families and couples operating different types of boats. I’ve taken their trips myself and have never been disappointed.

  • You can also go for a Sunset Cruise in summer on the larger catamaran, which departs at 5 pm and helps you avoid the crowds and intense summer heat – highly recommended !
  • Option 2: Beaches and Bays day trip , which takes you to the Blue Lagoon and some of Malta’s best beaches on a large catamaran. ( Highly recommended – More spacious, quieter! )

TIP: Get 5% off using coupon code MALTA5

Regular boat tours departing from Sliema:

  • Blue Lagoon Cruise  – Full-day boat trip
  • Spirit of Malta Catamaran tour – This full-day boat cruise takes you to the Blue Lagoon and stops at several little bays along Gozo’s coastline.

(If you’re staying in or near Valletta: You can easily take a ferry to Sliema and get the above boat trips. A ferry ride takes 5-10 minutes across Marsamxett Harbour).

All-inclusive Blue Lagoon & Gozo combo tours

Gozo tour specialist Yippee organises combo tours in summer (15th May – 15th October) that combine a 2+ hour visit to the Blue Lagoon with a land tour of Gozo—an excellent way to combine both destinations, with a quality tour provider that gets rave reviews. Transfers to/from Malta are included so they take care of your full day out.

  • The Sunset tour by Tuk-Tuk
  • The Sunset tour on Quad bikes

2) Ferries from Ċirkewwa

The cheapest way to get there is to take a ferry from near Ċirkewwa (the far Northern tip of the main island Malta, Gozo ferry terminal) or from the nearby place called Marfa and get dropped off at Malta’s Blue Lagoon.

They run according to a regular schedule, and the last return trips to Malta are between 5 and 7 pm, depending on the operator. The actual ferry trips take around 20-25 mins, and round-trip ticket prices are €13 for adults and €7 for children.

  • Getting to Ċirkewwa takes a while unless you decide to stay in Mellieħa (which is just a 10-min drive away). Although various public transport bus routes (which also pass through Mellieħa) stop at Ċirkewwa, it can be a long ride (around one hour from Sliema or St. Julian’s, for example)
  • These small ferry boats fill up quickly in the summer, while pre-booked boat tours guarantee you’ll get to the Blue Lagoon.

That also applies on the way back, with full buses taking people back to the bigger resorts after a day at the beach up North.

Still prefer this option and need public transport? Bus route 222 offers a direct connection if you stay in Sliema, St. Julian’s, St. Paul’s Bay, Buġibba and Qawra.

You can find more detailed info here: How to get to the Blue Lagoon from Sliema, St. Julian’s, St. Paul’s Bay, Buġibba and Qawra .

How to get to the Blue Lagoon from Gozo

You can get to the Blue Lagoon from Gozo with a few ferry operators at Mġarr Harbour (like  Bella Comino Ferry ) that offer trips at around €7 for a return trip. Operating hours are typically between 8 am and 6 pm.

Alternatively, local Gozo tour specialist Yippee offers two (all-inclusive) summer tours (15th May – 15th October) that combine a land tour of Gozo and serves people staying there (as well as in Malta):

  • The Two Island tour on Tuk-Tuk in Gozo (guided in multiple languages) and boat tour to Comino
  • The Sunset tour on Quad bikes (self-drive, following lead driver guide) and boat tour to Comino

With both these tours, you get 2+ hours at the Blue Lagoon , which is enough time and an excellent way to combine a visit here with a tour of Gozo.

What to expect when you get there

Malta’s Blue Lagoon is one of the most popular tourist destinations, and I definitely recommend that you make a visit part of your itinerary. However, I want you to be well-informed so you know what to expect.

  • During the high season, it gets very crowded between 10 am and 4 pm. Because there are only a few small patches of sand, any space there will have been taken up early on by other visitors who usually head there for a day trip at the small sandy beach.
  • With thousands of other tourists flocking there, apart from space being limited, don’t expect tranquillity.
  • There are other (rocky areas) where you can leave your stuff while you dive in, but the most comfortable option remains to have a boat to use as a base while you’re there.
  • Despite the business and the inevitable litter left by tourists, the authorities ensure daily cleaning is carried out and the water remains clean. Unlike a regular bay, there’s a constant current of water flowing through the lagoon.

5 Interesting Facts about Blue Lagoon Malta

  • The Blue Lagoon is one of the most naturally beautiful places to visit in Malta
  • It’s a shallow beach with white sand and crystal clear water in between Comino Island and the tiny islet of Cominotto
  • The surrounding area is a great place for snorkelling , as well as scuba diving, with many little inlets and caves around
  • Featured in blockbuster films like Troy (2004, starring Brad Pitt)
  • It’s the #1 reason why people flock to Comino Island, Malta’s third-largest island, which is a mostly rural landscape with just three permanent residents. The island’s name is derived from the Maltese word kemmun or cumin in English, a herb commonly found on the island.

Blue Lagoon FAQs

Where in malta is the blue lagoon.

The Blue Lagoon is located on the West coast of Comino island, the smallest of the islands of Malta. It’s located between main island Malta and Gozo and is easy to reach by boat from various locations.

How do I get from Malta to the Blue Lagoon?

You can either take a ferry from Cirkewwa (North of Malta), or from Sliema, Buġibba or Gozo if you want to visit on your own. You can also take a boat tour that berths there for a period of time during the day. More info here: How to get to The Blue Lagoon .

Is the Blue Lagoon worth it?

Yes, it’s an absolutely stunning place to visit and spend some time at. However, because of its popularity, it does get very, very busy in summer (Jul-Sep), so don’t expect to find tranquillity if you visit during that period. More info here: When best to visit the Blue Lagoon .

Are there sharks in the Blue Lagoon?

Around the Maltese archipelago, there are various species of sharks, however, the chances of being attacked are negligible, especially at the busy and shallow waters at the Blue Lagoon. There are only a handful of shark attacks recorded since 1890 so it’s not even something locals are wary of at all.

Are there any hotels near the Blue Lagoon?

There’s one (3-star) hotel on the tiny island of Comino, which is a 20-minute walk away. It’s called the Comino Hotel and isn’t the most modern of places. Don’t expect restaurants, amenities or lively nightlife. It only makes sense to stay there if you want to be in the middle of nowhere. Do not expect a luxury resort!

When’s the best time to go?

Malta’s Blue Lagoon is hugely popular among tourists and locals alike, and your best bet is to choose a weekday, although in July and August every day is a busy day.

In fact, if you’re staying in Malta during these months you should carefully consider whether it’s worth going, especially if you’re in Malta for a limited time.

My suggestions:

  • Go late in the day.  If you’re travelling with children or absolutely hate crowded places, go later in the afternoon when it’s quieter, or  pay a visit to Gozo  instead.
  • Go early in the day.  If you’re very much into sun and sea and don’t fit the above criteria, definitely consider paying a visit but know what to expect and  go early – before 9 am . (More on that below, in the tips section).
  • Avoid weekends.  This hotspot isn’t just popular among tourists, locals also enjoy a visit there, particularly on weekends and with the whole family in tow.
  • Visit off-season.  If you’ve yet to decide on travel dates, late May-June is the best time of year, before the summer season and while the early-summer weather is pleasant and most tourists won’t yet have arrived for their holiday. Alternatively, late September and October will also be a lot quieter.

Practical tips

  • If you’re spending the day,  it’s always wise to bring a large bottle of water with you , particularly in summer. Although the (single) hotel on the island offers food and drink it’s not located close to the beach. It’s within walking distance, but in the hot summer sun, a hike will be the last thing on your mind.
  • Even if you decide to go for a day trip by boat, it pays to be on board early to get a good seat for the day. With the huge popularity of its destination, these trips tend to be sold out to capacity on most occasions in peak season.
  • The same rule of timing applies here as it does for the rest of Malta: If sun and sea are important to you,  May, June and October  are better (and sometimes cheaper) months to visit the Malta Blue Lagoon in. Great sunny and warm weather, less busy.
  • If you’re on a short holiday, you haven’t visited Gozo yet and you  have  to choose between whether to go there or Comino island and its Blue Lagoon,  Gozo is the better choice to go sightseeing, for most travellers . Alternative, take a boat trip which combines the two destinations.
  • If you’re heading there for the day and worried about the kids getting board, you can opt to get a speedboat tour around the island and its main sights as well. You can usually find the operator near the main jetty.
  • Dare-devils tend to want to dive off one of the high cliffs opposite the main part of the bay. It might impress your friends, but why risk permanent disability or worse ?
  • If you decide to go for a swim at Malta Blue Lagoon,  be careful crossing over to Cominotto  (a small islet next to Comino). Although it’s definitely safe to swim there between June and August (peak summer), sometimes strong undercurrents in this straight between the main island and its islet can bring even experienced swimmers in difficulty. Although a lifeguard is present during the summer months (between mid-June and the end of September), it’s best to avoid swimming that stretch altogether.
  • Although not very common, jellyfish can be found around the Maltese islands. If you want to be safe, buy some  jellyfish sting protection cream or hydrocortisone cream  in case you do get stung from a pharmacy before you head to Comino.  There are only a few food trucks and beach kiosks around there and it’d be a shame to have a day out be spoiled by a little jellyfish sting. ( TIP: If you don’t have any cream with you and you get stung, the best thing to do is to scrape the poison off with something like a hard plastic card. That usually helps you avoid the worst of the uncomfortable pain and skin irritation.).

What to bring with you

  • Drinks and food can usually be bought from nearby food stalls, on boats or (if you’re set on a short hike) from the nearby hotel. You will be charged a premium and choice will be limited, however. So if you want to be frugal or you’re picky with food, make sure to  bring your own food and drink with you . The benefit of buying drinks on location is that they’ll be nice and cold. Definitely a BIG plus in summer. If you do bring your own, make sure to get  plenty of water  with you.
  • If you decide not to take a boat trip: Shade is hard to come by, so  always bring sun protection if you plan to go during the day. Unless you’re one of the lucky ones who manage to get there early enough to be able to rent an umbrella, you’ll be out in the hot sun. While it’s the main objective for some, don’t underestimate just how hot it gets. Not to mention that sun exposure during the day in summer (10+ UV index levels are common) are dangerous.
  • If you have  snorkelling gear , definitely get it with you. Malta Blue Lagoon and its surroundings are great for snorkelling. With some boat tour operators, you also get the option to hire gear for the day, but it’s best to check that with your operator of choice beforehand.
  • Some entertainment while you relax. A good book or magazine, for example, for while you catch up on being lazy.
  • If you plan to wander around a little while on Comino island, be sure to wear sturdy (closed) shoes . There aren’t any paved roads around the island, so the surface is pretty rocky/sandy and you’ll need them to be comfortable. Going on a little hike is a great idea (also because of the island’s small size – it’s hard to get lost) but avoid long walks in the hot summer heat in the middle of the day.
  • If you plan on finding a spot on the water’s edge for the day, bring at least a thick towel to sit on, or maybe a small inflatable cushion.
  • If you’re not taking a boat trip,  bring a disposable bag  with you as there are few bins around and littering is a real issue. Look after the environment!

Other places to visit while in Comino

Sailing back from Comino as the sun sets.

A few tips before I get into the sights to see:

  • Although the island is small, don’t underestimate the walking time needed, especially if you need to be back at the Blue Lagoon by a particular time (for example when on a boat trip). To give you an idea: to get to the Santa Marija Battery (historical building) on the opposite side of Comino, it’ll be a 35-minute walk
  • There are no paved roads as such, so wear sturdy shoes
  • Most of the island is a barren landscape, so make sure to get some water and food with you and think twice about a long hike in the middle of summer
  • Springtime is the best time of year to explore the island, without a doubt.

  • The  Crystal Lagoon  is located just around the corner (towards the South). Although there’s no easy place to access the water, it makes for another beautiful sight to take in and you’ll find many boats berthing there for the day, to avoid the hustle and bustle
  • Saint Mary’s Tower  is one of the few landmarks around Comino and is clearly visible when you take the ferry from Malta to Gozo. Part of a network of watch towers around the Maltese archipelago, the tower served to monitor the channel between the main islands and would signal the other towers in case of approaching threats. Each watch tower was in direct line of sight with at least two other towers, to be able to pass on the signal across the islands. The tower was built on a site in South of Comino (80 metres above sea level) in 1618 by Grandmaster de Wignacourt (and is referred to as one of six Wignacourt towers, of which four still stand today, at St. Paul’s Bay, Marsaxlokk and Marsaskala).
  • Up in the North of Comino, you can find San Niklaw Bay  and  Santa Maria Bay , both of which offer small sandy beaches and tend to be a lot quieter than the Blue Lagoon, despite the nearby Comino Hotel. To the East of Santa Marija Bay, you can find the  Santa Marija Caves , which is another excellent location for snorkelling and scuba diving in Comino.
  • Saint Mary’s Battery  is at the southernmost part of the island. It’s a recently-restored battery with guns built by the Knights of Malta between 1715 and 1716 and is a Grade 1 protected building that’s open to the public for viewing. Its main function was to protect the South Comino channel and is one of three surviving coastal batteries in Malta.

Lovely site! Are there any boat day trips from Gozo to the Blue Lagoon or only from Malta?

Thanks Rita

Hi Rita, yes, I’ve listed two options in the article for combo tours with Gozo. Good alternatives for full day trips I’m not aware of but honestly, 2-2.5 hours is enough for most people.

This boat tour is specifically designed to give you the opportunity to visit the islands of Gozo and Comino in one day

Cruise description, malta cruise.

During this boat tour, we will cruise along the Northern coast of Malta enjoying the views of St. Paul’s Islands & Mellieha. This gives you a perfect opportunity for good shots on the way to Gozo and Comino Islands.

On Gozo Island

Upon arrival at the sister island of Gozo we will board a bus tour, or on a minibus. After that, we will visit the Capital City Victoria, where we will stop for around 2 hours / free time /. The area around Victoria, situated on a hill near the centre of the island, has been settled since Neolithic times & in its centre lies the Cittadella, which you can visit. The Cittadella is a historic-fortified city, and it is on Malta’s tentative list of future World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. An old prison is located within the city, as are the Courts of Justice. On the way to the port, we will stop for a few minutes at Qala Belveder, which is a popular Gozo spot for taking pictures.

Comino & The Blue Lagoon Cruise

After that, in the afternoon, we will cruise to the famous Blue Lagoon, on Comino Island, where you can spend time exploring the island and swimming in the tranquil turquoise water, for around 45 minutes.

The boat will be anchored at the Blue Lagoon harbour, so you will have full use of facilities on board such as a bar (serving snacks and beverages at reasonable prices), freshwater showers, snorkels & masks (small charge applies), toilet & air-conditioned area.

This is the most popular cruise combining the islands.

Kindly be on the harbour 10-15 minutes before the boat departure, where a host/greeter will accommodate you.

We recommend you have good shoes for rocky soil, a towel, and sun cream.

Kindly listen to the announcements to get the correct departure times, or ask a crew member if you are unsure.

Bookings are accepted till 10 pm, the day before the tour departure, or until it is fully booked!

From June to October, we recommend booking at least 3 days in advance.

Enjoy Malta 🙂

Blue Lagoon Malta boat trips are among the most sought-after summer activities on the island. There’s no wonder this natural pool gets so busy during July-August, considered to be peak season for Malta.

The Blue Lagoon in Malta is a destination that captivates visitors with its pristine turquoise waters, dense marine life, and bare rocks with odd shapes.

This article will guide you through the enchanting Blue Lagoon and provide insights into the boat trips available.

The Blue Lagoon is a breathtaking natural pool located on the small island of Comino, known for its crystal-clear turquoise waters. It has gained popularity as a top destination for locals and tourists alike due to its untouched beauty and serenity.

Located between the islands of Malta and Comino, the Blue Lagoon is a must-visit location for those seeking a memorable boat trip experience.

Do not mistake the Blue Lagoon for the Blue Grotto, as they are two different places in Malta.

The famous Blue Lagoon with its deep blue, clear water

A boat trip to the Blue Lagoon is the perfect way to capture some amazing shots on this beautiful scenery. The water is crystal clear, so you’ll be able to see straight to the bottom of the sea.

Located off the island of Comino, Malta’s Blue Lagoon is accessible by sea only, either by boat taxi or ferry or by private boat.

Ferries to Blue Lagoon depart from Cirkewwa on the main island of Malta. You can also get to Blue Lagoon from Gozo’s main harbor, Mgarr.

This ferry service is called Co-Op Comino Ferries and it operates multiple boats a day between the three islands of Malta. Click here to see the schedule and the current price of a round trip to the Blue Lagoon.

Co-Op Comino Ferries are convenient and inexpensive. We only paid 15 Euros per person for a round trip that included a tour of the caves. The biggest advantage of choosing the ferry was that we got to spend half day on Gozo as well.

Once done on Gozo, we took the regular ferry to get back to Cirkewwa. On the boat, we enjoyed a lovely sunset over Gozo.

Check out my article about the best sunsets in Malta to get some more ideas.

The drawback of ferries is that they drop you off in the busiest and craziest spot on Comino, where people look like colonies of penguins or seals.

Brace yourself for some crowds at the Blue Lagoon

It’s almost impossible to take a picture of the Blue Lagoon without a bunch of people inside it

As you can see from my photos, the Blue Lagoon visiting experience isn’t the best one, especially if you decide to take this trip on a Sunday.

Boat trips to Blue Lagoon Malta usually take you to several swimming and snorkeling spots, so you won’t have to put up with such crowds.

Gozo, Comino, caves and Blue Lagoon boat trips depart from Bugibba Jetty, St Paul’s Bay, St. Julian’s or Sliema Harbor.

Best Blue Lagoon Boat Trips

Various boat options are available for exploring the Blue Lagoon, catering to different preferences and budgets. From large cruise ships to smaller speedboats, catamarans and traditional Maltese boats, you can find a tour that suits your needs. These tours typically depart from the main harbors of Malta or Gozo and take you on a scenic journey to the Blue Lagoon.

Opting for a boat trip to the Blue Lagoon allows you to enjoy the journey as much as the destination. You’ll have the opportunity to witness stunning coastal views, catch glimpses of hidden coves, and appreciate the natural wonders of the Maltese archipelago.

Additionally, boat trips often include informative guides who provide interesting facts about the Blue Lagoon and the surrounding areas. Transport by ferry may be cheaper, but it doesn’t come with all of these perks.

Here are three different options of boats and trips. For more details and for booking your spot, click on the blue links below.

Catamarans are such spectacular and convenient craft!

Click here to see this Blue Lagoon Malta boat trip and to book it at the price of today.

This catamaran trip to the Blue Lagoon includes stops in two or three different locations. It is a 5-6 hour activity that starts and ends in Bugibba.

The first stop is Blue Lagoon.

The boat will moor away from the crowds. This is your opportunity to experience the famous turquoise water peacefully, without snorkelers and swimmer splashing around and spoiling your photos.

The stops after the Blue Lagoon depend on weather conditions. Bad weather and rough sea are dangerous, and no captain would risk the lives of their passengers. Just think of these additional stops as bonuses and don’t be sad in case they get cancelled. A few of the possible stops:

1. Crystal Lagoon , surrounded by steep, dramatic cliffs. Its crystal clear waters are much deeper than the Blue Lagoon, making the area fantastic for snorkelling and swimming in and around the caves. During this stop, you can enjoy a barbecue.

2. Anchor Bay to view the film set of Popeye’s Village, tucked away in a charming bay.

Other stops that could be made include Mellieha Bay, Golden Bay, Ghajn Tuffieha Bay , Ramla Bay, Imgiebah Bay, or Half Rock. All of these locations are great for snorkelling and swimming.

Back on the boat, listen to dance music, and buy cocktails at the bar. If you have selected the afternoon option, relax and watch the sunset on the horizon. After a lovely day at sea, you’ll get back to Bugibba.

Check out the rates and the availability of this full-day boat trip here .

This full-day cruise from Bugibba will take you to the Blue Lagoon and to the island of Gozo, where you’ll be able to explore this island on your own.

There are different boats and departure times. You’ll be able to select your desired ones when you do the booking.

You can also select and add on one of the shuttle bus transfer tickets available to Xlendi or to Victoria, in order to make the most of your three hours on Gozo. If you already have the unlimited Tallinja card, you won’t need any transfer tickets, as you’ll be able to use all bus services on Gozo by simply validating your card every time you board a bus.

This Blue Lagoon and Gozo tour begins from the tourist town of Bugibba, where your vessel departs on a scenic two-island cruise.

Malta’s seashore is very beautiful, so you’ll have amazing photo opportunities throughout your entire journey at sea. You will pass the tiny Island of St. Paul’s, with its statue of the apostle St. Paul rising higher than buildings around it.

You will also get to visit the scenic sea caves, with their stunning rock formations and turquoise waters.

The boat features three waterslides, so get ready to have some great fun using them.

You can also jump from the top deck if you dare. I’d stick with the water slides, though.

By the end of your journey, you’ll cruise back to Bugibba, entering the Santa Maria pirate caves and viewing the “Elephant’s Head”, an amazing rock formation that looks just like the head of a giant elephant.

Snorkeling equipment is available and included in your price. I usually prefer to bring my own, just because I like it. However, I’ve been on such boats without my snorkel mask and I’ve used theirs without any issues.

Such boat tours often provide comfortable lounging areas where you can unwind, sip a cool drink, and soak up the idyllic atmosphere. Whether you prefer a sun-soaked deck or a shaded spot, there’s a perfect place for everyone to enjoy moments of tranquility.

Boat trip Sliema to Comino - Blue Lagoon

As a family we decided to take a round Malta all day cruise and stop-over at The blue Lagoon on Comino. Leaving Sliema with Captain Morgan tours, we headed out of Sliema and along the coat north, towards Gozo and Comino. After dropping a few tourists off on Gozo we made the short trip across to Comino and enter a glorious blue water, sandy bottomed lagoon for a 2 hour stay. The clear waters were inviting and it was a great experience snorkelling among shoals of fish in the hot sun. A rugged island that is a nature reserve there were a few welcome kiosks selling watermelons, drinks and Ices. Although quite busy in summer it was really relaxing, with great viewsacross to Gozo and back to Malta. The trip carried on around the coast of Malta viewing the coast and wildlife and finally back to Sliema after 8 hours total. A truly wonderful day out with a meal and wine included. Our last full day well spent.

This is a MUST if you are going to Malta. There are plenty of boat trips out and I'm so glad that we came here. The views are amazing and the water is crystal clear. It was busy when we went so it was hard finding an area to keep out bags whilst we went swimming, but we walked further down from the main area to a quieter location. The only downside was that from Melliha Bay it was a long journey (look out for the dolphins)!!

blue lagoon malta boat trips from sliema

one of the best spots in malta... the water is so blue and clear... A must ! unforgettable place on the island

Was I lucky or what!? When I took an excursion to the Blue Lagoon on Comino the other day (March 2nd), there were only three tourists going there: me and a Nepalese couple. The couple soon disappeared behind one of the rocky outcroppings at the lagoon, so I ended up having the entire lagoon area to myself! Not another living soul in sight! My camera went into overdrive! I've read some of TA's negative reviews about the Blue Lagoon and not in a million years would I visit the lagoon during high season. Obviously, my rating of this place as 'excellent' would have very likely been quite different had I visited it during high season, with the hordes of tourists and packs of irritating touts milling about. As the boat pulled into the lagoon, the first words out of my mouth were, 'OMG!!! Is this place for real?' The colours just blew me away. But the icing on the cake was that I was the only one there. Comino does have other attractions, its main one being the 7 km Comino Walk. Along the route, one can see the old Isolation Hospital, St. Mary's Tower (which doubled as the gruesome Chateau d'If in the 2002 film, 'The Count of Monte Cristo', and the Chapel. Low season, the lagoon is heaven; high season, the lagoon must be hell!

Beautiful short trip. Excellent value for money. Recommended for all ages. Slightly dodgy slope when wet.

This place is just beautiful, very clear waters and gorgeous views, recommended for snorkelling as well. A must if you're in Malta.

Blue Lagoon Malta

HOW TO GET TO BLUE LAGOON

Options of transportation to blue lagoon.

The only way to reach the Blue Lagoon is to use a boat service. The most common way is to get a Ferry from Cirkewwa or Marfa. The other common option is to get a day cruise boat from Sliema Ferry or Bugibba. There is also the possibility of hiring a private boat, but this, of course, is the most expensive option.

Visit Blue Lagoon by Ferry

blue lagoon malta boat trips from sliema

Option 1: By bus till you reach Cirkewwa and then catch a Ferry to Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is located on the island of Comino and the very first thing to do is to get to the city of  Cirkewwa  or  Marfa .  From any of these two, you can catch ferries running regularly (more or less every 30 minutes) to Blue Lagoon. Look out for the boats which say “Comino Ferry”. 

  • From Valletta : You can take a direct bus number  41 or  42  that rides for about 90 minutes. Since you are departing from the main station, finding a decent seat is almost guaranteed. 
  • From Floriana : Same as from Valletta you can take the bus number  41  and  42  for a ride of about 90 minutes.
  • From Sliema : take the bus number  222 , this is a direct bus and it drives for about 80 minutes, departing every 15 to 30 minutes and can possibly make 56 stops from Sliema.
  • From St. Julians : take the bus number  222 , this is a direct bus and it drives for about 80 minutes, departing every 15 to 30 minutesand can make about 49 bus stops. 
  • From Bugibba : You can take the bus  221 with about 30 minutes drive. This bus circulates with a frequency of 30 minutes.
  • From Qawra : You can take the bus  221 with about 30 minutes drive. Bus passes every 30 minutes.
  • From Xemxija : You can take the bus  221 with about 30 minutes drive. This bus leaves every 30 minutes.
  • From Mellieha : all the buses with  direction to Cirkewwa are a good.
  • From the Airport : Bus  X1 drives for about 60 minutes and leaves every 35-40 minutes.

What to note:

  • For a bus to stop you should make a clear sign to the driver by raising your hand when the bus is approaching and make yourself visible while staying on the side walk.
  • Buses in Malta are not necessarily stopping on all the bus stops, so remember that even if on the timetable there are many bus stops, in reality they make less. When approaching your bus stop, ring the bell to avoid missing your stop.

Visit Blue Lagoon on a Day Cruise

blue lagoon malta boat trips from sliema

Option 2: Excursions to Blue Lagoon from Sliema, St.Julians and Bugibba.

  • From Sliema by boat : In Sliema Ferry you will find many boats and many offices where you can buy the tickets from. Tickets vary from €25 to €70 when you buy and all-inclusive. Make sure you speak to an official representative of the company you buy your tickets from. Operators are:  Hera Cruises ,  Captain Morgan .
  • From St. Julian’s by boat : From St. Julian’s there are departures with smaller boats, such as speed boats and the usual price is €50 per person. Consider that these boats are faster but also smaller and more prone to be affected by wind and waves.
  • From Bugibba by boat :Bugibba would be a stop for the boats coming from Sliema and St. Julian’s. Prices are a bit cheaper due to a shorter distance, between €15 to €20. The only route operators that depart from Bugibba as main first departure are  Sea Adventure  and  Horn Blower .

Visit Blue Lagoon on a Private Boat

blue lagoon malta boat trips from sliema

Option 3: Visit Blue Lagoon on a Private Boat/Yacht

More people are discovering that for a better experience (with no crowds) of Blue Lagoon, it is best to visit by a chartered private boat. This option particularly suitable for groups as the total expense can be divided between the group members. The prices are between €450 and €700 for a day on a private sailing yacht and usually include skipper and fuel. The price depends on the size of the group.

This option will allow you to visit Blue Lagoon at your own peace and pace. You can still swim to shore and buy food and drinks even though usually this type of boat has both kitchen and fridge on board.

Ask your captain to include the Blue Lagoon in the route and time it when the lagoon is less crowded to enjoy it at its best. Ask him for suggestions about other bays to see on the way.

You can ask for a quotation  here .

Things to note:

  • Ask what is included in the price. 
  • Ask if you can bring your own food and drinks on board if you wish to do so.
  • Ask your captain about his license to avoid having your day ruined by local authorities. Remember that in Malta to have clients on board of a boat the captain must have a Boat Master issued by Maltese authorities.

Comino Blue Lagoon

Comino is a beautiful island sitting between Malta and Gozo. It is renowned for its crystal clear waters, hence the name of its most famous bay – the Blue Lagoon.

The Blue Lagoon is also referred to as the Crystal Lagoon due to its crystal clear light blue waters.

Apart from Comino Hotel, there is only one single family living permanently on the island. Comino has become a favourite destination for tourists from all over the world, particularly cherished for its peace and tranquillity.

St Mary’s Tower is the most visible structure on the island. It dates back to 1416, when the Maltese petitioned their King to build a tower on Comino to serve as an early warning system in case of invasion. At the time they wanted to deter marauding Turks, pirates, smugglers and corsairs from using Comino as a hiding place and staging ground for devastating sorties onto the sister islands of Malta and Gozo.

Chaudron Power Boats

Our Power Boats are custom built by the famous Chaudron boat company, a company established in Malta in 1988 which today is the undisputed top boat-building company in Malta. Among the many prestigious awards won by Chaudron is the SuperSport Championship, which it won for three years in a row: in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Our power-boats are 33 feet long with twin Yamaha 300hp engines and can take over 20 people. Safety is our top priority, and our boats are built with all necessary safety measures to ensure a smooth and safe boating experience.

Chaudron started competing in the Powerboat P1 championship in 2004 with the debut race in home seas.

Chaudron were allowed to compete after being given a wildcard and after the experience the team planned on entering the SuperSport championship with the main aim of securing the world title – an ambition achieved in 2007 and 2008.
