Explore more of what outdoor swimming has to offer with our Discover Open Water Swimming experience in Malta and Gozo. Warm, gentle turquoise seas, fantastic underwater visibility and gorgeous coastlines make this an ideal way to experience the best of what open water swimming in the south of the Mediterranean has to offer.
The Maltese archipelago features three main inhabited islands, Malta, Gozo and Comino. We’ll spend most of our time on and around Gozo, enjoying its laid back lifestyle. We’ll be based at the Duke Boutique Hotel where you can relax in comfort in the island’s capital Victoria (aka Rabat), and enjoy the views of its medieval citadel and the Gozo Cathedral. Situated in the centre of the island, the capital is the perfect starting point for our numerous swims around the island.
