The Most Instagrammable Spots in Malta

Blue Grotto

The Blue Grotto is a series of adjoining sea caves on the south-eastern coast of Malta, along with a natural arch spanning around 30 metres in height. The view is incredible – clear blue waves battering against the limestone formations make for impressive photos. It’s also one of Malta’s most popular diving and snorkelling spots, so it’s a good idea to get there early if you want to avoid the crowd.

Mdina Gate

Mdina Gate, also called Vilhena Gate, is a baroque-style entrance to Mdina, a fortified city in Malta. 

Mdina Gate was featured as King’s Landing Gate in the first season of Game of Thrones, which might be why it’s one of the most photographed sites in Malta.

Coral Lagoon

Coral Lagoon is an impressive natural pool near Armier Bay in Mellieha, a small town on the northern end of Malta. Also called Dragonara Cave, this rocky swimming spot is rather challenging to reach due to lack of public transport – which makes it incredibly photogenic.

Malta's Megalithic Temples

The megalithic temples of Malta are located on the southern coast of Malta, around 2 km west of the Blue Grotto. The structures date back between 3,600 BC and 700 BC, making them among the oldest religious sites on the island. The Mnajdra and Ħaġar Qim Temples are very popular spots among photographers. There’s a visitor centre with a children's playroom, as well as a 4D film introduction of the archaeological site.

Anchor Bay

Anchor Bay is a rocky inlet that offers excellent diving opportunities in Malta. It’s also the location of Popeye Village, a small resort town and theme park that was used as a film set for the musical Popeye in 1980. During the summer, the village offers sunbeds for rental, as well as a waterpark and trampoline for kids to enjoy.

St Agatha's Tower

St Agatha’s Tower is a photogenic structure offering excellent views of Gadhira Bay. Constructed in 1649, the bastioned watchtower has a vivid maroon shade, which resulted in its nickname, the Red Tower. You can also find a small chapel and altar dedicated to Saint Agatha, one of Malta’s patron saints.

Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is located on Comino, a tiny limestone islet wedged between Malta and Gozo. As the name suggests, the waters here are a brilliant turquoise blue – a stark contrast against the lagoon's unique rock formations and caves. You can spot adventurous travellers diving in the lagoon and hiking the rugged cliffs, though most just take in the views from the beach or their boat.

Popeye Village

Popeye Village is a family-friendly resort town in Anchor Bay, on the north-western part of Malta. It was the filming set of the 1980 musical, Popeye before becoming a small theme park. There are many wooden houses in bold colours along the bay, as well as kid-friendly packages during Halloween, Easter, and Carnival.

St Peter's Pool

St Peter’s Pool offers excellent swimming and snorkelling opportunities in the southwest of Malta. The natural pool is around 1.5 km north of Fort Delimara in Marsaxlokk. It’s rarely crowded with visitors, making it a rather popular spot for those living in Marsaxlokk and nearby towns in Malta.
