CORAL LAGOON. Malta Island
Coral lagoon It is one of the little secrets of the island of Malta, Coral cave is located north of the island and close to Armier Bay.
This cave is unique in that its roof has fallen and is presented as a large hole with rounded walls which descends vertically to a natural pool of crystal clear water.
Coral cave to enter have different options, for the most daring people can jump directly into the pool about performing a jump 7 meters. For those who like me prefer something more relaxed we can reach Coral cave swimming from land on an expedition of some minutes, canoe or boat.
I met personally Coral cave diving, It is a dive site that perform several dive centers on the island, also a good place for snorkeling and for practicing psiobloc in good calcareous rock and overhanging.
