An iconic Gozo dive, the Blue Hole is reached by walking over ancient coralline limestone rocks with rough surfaces and some sharp edges. From the shore a shallow-water shelf leads out to an abrupt drop that is the Blue Hole. This natural rock formation resembling an upright tube has been carved out by thousands of years of wind and wave power. It offers a sheltered entry for this dive which takes you through a huge archway starting at 6m and stretching right down to the bottom at 15m. A large cave at the bottom of the hole, exactly opposite the archway, is also worth exploring. At the back of the cave is some spectacular scenery, making this area one of the most sought after dive sites in the Maltese islands.
