Meditation on blue in Malta


Rocky outcrop Comino

As I looked back on my photos of Malta, I was struck by the incredible spectrum of blues in the images – from turquoise to royal velvet. The island is surrounded by some of the clearest waters I have ever seen, especially around Comino, which is home to the blue lagoon. Visibility for divers is up to 30 meters, making it one of the world’s best dive sites. The bulk of these photos – a meditation on blue – were taken on a boat trip to Comino where we explored some of the island’s coves. The final few photos were taken in Gozo.

More information on Malta

I have written a post about Malta’s fairytale capital, Valletta, which is a million miles away from the mass tourism images of Malta that you may have imagined. It’s a gorgeous place with romantic architecture that sweeps you to the times of the days of the Knights of Malta. I’ve written a guide to my Valletta Travel Essentials, including things to do, places to eat and where to stay.

I was also impressed my Malta’s vegetarian food, as detailed in my post on what we ate there. Although Malta is traditionally very fond of meat and fish, there is so much fresh produce that it’s easy to be vegetarian too.

If you’re looking for a place to stay  while in Malta and you fancy treating yourself then I definitely recommend thePalazzo Prince d’Orange, a beautifully restored palazzo on St.Paul’s Street. It used to a merchant’s house and has now been transformed into a boutique hotel with four suites and a penthouse with panoramic views across the harbor. Achieving a stylish mix of old and new, it’s the perfect place to stay for a dash of luxury on your stay to the city.

I was invited to Malta by the Blog Island Malta campaign. I was free to write what I wished and all opinions are of course my own.  The campaign was created by the people at iambassador in partnership with the Malta Tourism Authority and the support of Air Malta. Thanks for inviting me to the fairytale land!

  1. I’ve read a few blogs on Malta lately and it has made it undeniably apparent that I need to go! Stunning photos – I really love all the various shades of blue!

  2. I’m not a big beach person, I do enjoy going for a walk though and put my feet into the sea water, sit in a corner and watch the waves. I can see myself doing the same at these places, they are very beautiful.

  3. The Photos are gorgeous, we went there many years ago and I had forgotten how vivid blue
    the sea is there, it has to be the bluest I have ever seen, especially in Gozo. Thank you for
    Reminding me of how beautiful it is.
    Lots of love from Patsy xxx
