The Coral Lagoon is one of Malta’s natural wonders
We’ve all heard of Malta’s Blue Lagoon – but have you heard of the Coral Lagoon?
If you’re coming to Malta on holiday this summer, the Coral Lagoon is a natural wonder you’ll want to check out.
The water at the Coral Lagoon is crystal clear, making it popular with divers and snorkelers who explore the underwater caves.
And it’s recently become one of Malta’s most popular Instagram spots thanks to its stunning scenery and amazing views.
How do I get there?
The Coral Lagoon is a naturally formed cave near Armier Bay in Mellieha. It’s a little off the beaten track but well worth the effort.
There are at two ways to get to the Coral Lagoon. You can either drive to the Chapel of Immaculate Conception and then turn left when you see the campsite sign, or drive to Armier Bay Beach and from there walk towards the Ahrax Tower.
If you do decide to walk, make sure you wear sturdy footwear, as the terrain is quite harsh. Pack water, plenty of sunblock and of course, don’t forget your camera.
What is there to see?
The lagoon is one of Malta’s most breathtaking locations and a dream for divers and swimmers alike.
The Coral Lagoon is a firm favourite with TripAdvisor reviewers. One woman from Prague described it as a ‘gorgeous little gem’.
She added: ‘This lagoon is a hidden cave that is very popular diver’s spot due to its crystal clear waters. From Little Armier Bay, you can get there by kayak or by foot and swim in this unusual, true beauty of nature!’
Another holidaymaker from Hungary posted: ‘I discovered this place almost by accident and it was simply breathtaking.
‘The water has a magnificent turquoise shade, the sea outside is dark blue, and the sky is light blue. Recommended to anyone who is up to some adventure.’
