Among the world’s best
Gozo Diving is famous for the underwater visibility, warm temperatures and stunning underwater scenery. Submerged caves, chimneys, arches and tunnels together with breathtaking drop offs and the flourishing marine life make Gozo a top diving destination. In fact, Gozo and Malta were recently voted the 2 nd best diving destination in the world by Diver magazine readers, making it the top place to dive in Europe.
A different world down there
Beneath the surface of the sea, lies a magical and colourful world waiting to be discovered. If you’ve already been diving in the Gozitan waters, you can understand clearly what we’re talking about. If you’ve never ventured into the spellbinding underwater world, this page will give you a faint glimpse of what we are talking about.
Decommissioned ships have been scuttled off Gozo’s South coast, near Comino’s Blue Lagoon and near Malta’s north coast. One wreck in particular was scuttled in shallow water purposely to be enjoyed by less experienced divers.
Possible all year round
The sea is usually calm but the small of the island means that you spend little time travelling between sites and if there is wind on one side of the island you are only minutes from an alternative dive-site. The sea temperature never drops below 14ºC so diving is possible almost all year round.
Gozo offers a wide range of dive centres with experienced, professional and qualified diving staff trained to teach all levels, from beginners to professional level according to Scuba Schools International (SSI), the Confederation Mondiale des Activites Subaquatiques (CMAS) and the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) standards.Dive centres are located across the Islands, so you will always find one near your accommodation. There is no need to bring your own equipment as centres provide all you need.

The island’s world class cave and tunnel dives, complemented by excellent light penetration, make any dive an event to remember.The island’s award-winning clean coast, and its array of scenic caverns, reefs, caves, and wrecks, make each dive an interesting one. It is no wonder Gozo attracts divers from across Europe and beyond – all wanting to explore the sub-aquatic mysteries of this Mediterranean isle.
The Wied il-Mielah valley is a breathtaking natural wonder located in the north-western corner of Gozo island, specifically in Gharb. It boasts of the Wied il-Mielah Window, which is a megalithic archway over the sea that is similar to the now-collapsed Azure Window in Dwejra. To access the dive site in Wied il-Mielah, one must take a boat ride. Diving under the arch of the window towards the valley leads to a stunning large cave with an air pocket. The cave entrance has a depth of around 16 meters. At the foot of the arch, towards the west and west-northwest, there is a 30-meter-long reef at a depth of 12 meters. Between the reef and the wall, the depth drops to 18 meters, and there is a lovely swim-through under the rocks. Towards the west of the window, there is another picturesque cave/crack at 20 meters that is open up to the surface. The cave has great scenery and is perfect for photography enthusiasts. Further west, the wall drops to 18-20 meters, and the sea bed slopes down with some boulders. Straight out from the archway into the blue at about 30-35 meters, one can often see a shoal of barracudas. Towards the east of the window, the wall drops to 50 meters and more, providing an even more spectacular view.
Located in the charming village of Xlendi on the southwest coast of Gozo island, the Xlendi Bay dive site boasts a unique blend of sandy and rocky terrain, with towering cliffs overlooking the crystal-clear waters. Dive enthusiasts can explore the stunning 70-meter-long tunnel cave and the vibrant reef teeming with diverse marine life. This site is perfect for beginners and dive training, with the deeper reef catering to technical dive training. Night diving is a must-try experience in the shallow bay, while swimming and snorkeling are popular activities enjoyed by many. Xlendi Bay is truly a gem that offers something for everyone.
