Vist Malta have launched their new DIVE TRAIL; an underwater map and guide for the best dive spots around the islands.

Designed to showcase locations that are suitable for both beginners and experienced divers, the Maltese Archipelago has long been a favourite scuba destination for travellers.

Azure Reef, the famed Azure Window which collapsed into the sea in March 2017 awaits discovery. The impressive site boasts incredible rock formations, canyons and narrow passageways
HMS Maori Shipwreck, arguably Malta’s most famous and historical wreck. Divers of all levels can discover this WW2 destroyer at a depth between 11-15 metres
