Gozo and Comino Islands: including Blue Lagoon, Crystal Lagoon & caves

335 reviews
Get away from the main island of Malta in search of sea and sunshine on this tour from Bugibba. Visit the Crystal Lagoon (if traveling in June-October), followed by the Blue Lagoon on Comino for swimming and snorkeling. From here, continue to Gozo Island, where you have the choice of enjoying free time at your leisure or taking a tour of the island's historic sites before cruising back to Bugibba via the Santa Maria pirate caves.

We enjoyed our trip today very much at this historic fort. We found it by chance since we were on a hike. Our guide was very well informed and happy to answer questions. The 100ton gun is formidable and the detailed explaination of the workings was fascinating. The museum was an extra bonus and 2 hours passed by very quickly with our guide. Well worth the visit... next door there was shooting for a film or serial.. great to see some of the behind-the-scenes and the famous water tanks.

I visited here with friends in Nov 20 and we were treated to a special tour as it was very quiet, The history in this area is very interesting, and our guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about his subject. The people that work or volunteer here have a passion for their subject and their fort and this comes across. I think a €13 charge to enter is a little high, but otherwise it's a nice afternoons visit, made especially enjoyable by the people. We finished our day with a meal by the beach to round off a lovely day.

Due to Covid-19 we had a VIP tour: a guide took us on a 30min visit, plus some movies about the functioning of the cannon. The guide was very knowledgeable and it was a very interesting visit. There is a small museum inside about the Army - very interesting too.

A very informative experience. The guides are very knowledgeable about the place and also very helpful. It is also a place that can be enjoyed by older children, say around 11+ years.

Visited on a Saturday morning with our two youngest - we were greeted warmly and given a detailed history of the fort and the famous cannon by the very knowledgeable David. The fort is fascinating, as was learning about how the cannon was operated. It's a pity that these gems aren't advertised enough also with us locals as it truly made for a memorable couple of hours!
