This short swimming escape in Malta boasts perfect turquoise seas, great underwater visibility and imposing sheer cliffs, allowing you to discover the best swimming the south of the Mediterranean has to offer. With the chance to explore the many coves of the islands and swim a substantial part of the Gozitan coastline, come and discover one of the most southern points of Europe with us.
The Maltese archipelago features three main inhabited islands; Malta, Gozo and Comino, with Gozo being where we will spend the majority of our trip, though we will swim alongside each of the islands. A quiet but beautiful island, you’ll find a laid back approach to life on Gozo, and the ideal setting for a SwimTrek trip. Our base for the trip is the Duke Boutique Hotel where you can relax in comfort in the island’s capital Victoria (aka Rabat) which sits in the middle of the island. It features an impressive medieval citadel and the Gozo Cathedral which boasts ornate, baroque painted ceilings.
This trip sees us visiting great swimming spots across the archipelago, taking on the iconic Gozo - Malta swim and getting up close to a number of the island’s notable sites.

Malta Escape was a fantastic location to get into sea swimming. Incredible backdrops along rugged coastlines and the most incredible water clarity to enjoy the reefs and sea life while you swim. Sure beats looking at lines on the bottom of the pool!Paul E, UK - 2019

SwimTrek is a great way to meet a friendly group of fellow swimmers, enjoy some great swims and see some holiday locations from a viewpoint rarely seen by others. Once you do one you will want to do more.Matt S, UK - 2019
