diving - lots of diving centres. You might wish to try diving at Marfa Point for an underground paradise of caves, tunnels and reefs at a depth of 15 to 30 metres, or Cirkewwa Arch underwater arch. There are several wrecks such as HMS Maori below Fort St Elmo and for intrepid divers, a Blenheim Bomber at a depth of 42 metres east of Xrob il-Ghagin. Good locations on Gozo for all levels of experience  include the Xlendi reefs and caves. See diving holidays in Malta
