… ONE OF THE BEST SEA KAYAKING DESTINATIONS IN THE WORLD For those with a sense of adventure, sea kayaking has always proved a popular holiday activity. Although there are great destinations for sea kayaking across the world, the Blue Lagoon near Gozo is the envy of many.
The crystal waters around this Maltese island have recently been awarded the accolade of the third best destination for diving in the world, and number one in the Mediterranean. Whether you want to see the area top side on a kayak, or under water, this stunning underwater paradise is sure to not disappoint.
The Blue Lagoon is situated just off the coast of Gozo on its sister island, Comino, on which only a handful of people permanently live.
The lagoon itself is a natural inlet with clear, azure waters. Surrounded by a small beach, and rocky outcrops, you are protected from any prevailing sea winds and left to enjoy the crystal waters, local wildlife and stunning scenery. With such an idyllic setting it won’t come as a surprise that Gozo and the Blue Lagoon is on the wish list for many a holidaymaker with a sense of adventure.
Jonny Cooper, director of specialist soft adventure travel company Off the Map Travel, said; “Gozo is a great destination for those looking for a sense of adventure and delivers an outdoor playground that has maintained its unique culture and heritage.
“The Blue Lagoon is one of the natural jewels in the islands’ crown. You’d be hard pushed to ever find clearer waters or better kayaking conditions anywhere in the world.”
