The blue hole has been voted into Europes top 10 dive sites and one of the most dived, dive site on Gozo.
The blue hole is a cicular formation of limestone rock creating a clear large rock pool leading to an enjoyable and memerable dive area.
The pool has an impresive underwater arch at around 8 - 15 metres giving access to the open sea for divers and snorkellers.
