Malta is an European island that is not as popular as it should be since there are so many great beach activities that will suit most tourists from around the world. It does not really matter if you love soaking in the sun or you want to take part in water sports. You can experience everything in Malta. Just take a look at the various different beach activities that can be put on your holiday list.
This is a highly popular activity in Malta. That is especially the case when referring to the Blue Lagoon in Comino, St Paul’s Bay, Golden Bay, Ghar Lapsi, Paradise bay and Gnejna. Renting or buying snorkeling gear is really easy. There are also some guided adventure options that can be considered since there are various trained guides that can be hired directly or through tour operators. Malta has a really scenic underwater world that you do want to consider.
In most locations where snorkeling is available we also have scuba diving as an option. Malta is no different. There are many opportunities you can take advantage of. There are many historical shipwrecks in Malta and sites that give you the possibility of exploring marine life. You can find diving excursions all around the country, with the sea around the island being perfect as you have access to Camino and Gozo at the same time.
If you want something more exciting, water skiing is a great activity to consider. This sport is really popular in Malta. However, it is mostly practiced in Gnejna Bay due to the better conditions offered. You can also consider Armier Bay in the event that you are in the north part of the island.
Taking water skiing to the next level is possible with jet skiing. It is just perfect for the adventure lover. Rent jet skis and then explore the entire coastline if you want to. That allows you to easily discover some secluded caves and beaches you can only access from the sea. If you love jet skiing, do consider going to Mellieha and St Julian’s.
Toning it down a little bit, how about sea kayaking? This is a popular pastime in the island, allowing you to explore coastlines and have fun at the same time. In most situations we see sea kayaking being combined with snorkeling by tour operators so that the adventure factor is increased. If you want to know the best destinations, they are definitely Mellieha Bay and Golden Bay.
With so many beaches, you have to experience surfing in Malta if this is the beach activity for you. Most people do not know much about this since waters are usually really calm around the island. However, some of the areas are perfect for both experienced surfers and beginners. The only problem is that you cannot rent surfing equipment. You will need to take yours with you for the trip.
