The third day of our Malta adventure was spent on an all-day cruise around the islands. It was a nice, relaxing day with gorgeous views everywhere the eye could see! We started in the Grand Harbor, once a huge port of military significance, now a significant port for Malta’s commercial shipping.
Saint Elmo Bridge
The fish cages used by the fishermen of Marsaxlokk. If you look close, you can see one of the dolphins who stopped by to visit as we cruised by!
Strangely, there are ladders along the cliffside. Strangely, I REALLY wanted to climb one…
One of the tiny caves dotting the island. Our boat captain was quite the pro and sailed us nice and snug into the cave.
The gap between the islands Gozo (right) and Comino (left).
We docked in Comino for a nice break to stretch our legs and have some fun. We were supplied gear for snorkeling and you could even take a speedboat ride around Comino. We did both activities, I just don’t have any of the speedboat ride as it was too dangerous to my camera to try and take any shots!
See those people lined along the cliff on the right? Yeah, they’re JUMPING. Crazy people!!
I was asked this a lot when we came home and showed some iPhone shots, but yes, the water really is all those beautiful colors. No enhancement on my end!Can you spot the elephant?
Ahh, posting all these images makes me long for the sea…..Where do we visit next, you ask? Valletta, of course!!
