Secret Scuba Spot: Malta's Twilight Zone

Twilight Zone

Comino Island's Santa Maria caves are a favorite spot for divers in the know.

Tobias Friedrich

Divers come to the Maltese Island of Comino to drop down in its blue waters and explore then 10 caves collectively known as Santa Maria. A dive light is necessary to negotiate the numerous swim-throughs, cave openings and tunnels, and to spot the locals - nudibranchs, crabs, octopuses and moray eels. Comino sits between the bigger islands of Gozo and Malta, and has a permanent population of four residents.
