“Best Way to get to the Blue Lagoon at Camino”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

What a way to get to the Blue Lagoon! Forget those other slow boats, get down to St Julians and get the Okikoki speedboat out to Comino!. The boat leaves St Julians slowly, but with loud music blasting out. However as the boat approaches open sea it is full throttle - feel that wind through your hair (wish I had gone a few years ago!).

On the way to the Blue Lagoon, the speedboat slows and enters some caves - What a way to see these caves!. The boat then heads to the Blue Lagoon & drops you off for a few hours.

We arrived at the Blue Lagoon early, so there were still many deck-chairs and umbrellas to rent (think it was either Euro 4 or 5 for EACH item). The deckchairs were precariously perched on the rocks overlooking the Blue Lagoon and were not the most comfortable, so it was great to get off your backside and swim in the crystal clear waters. Other facilities at the Blue Lagoon included toilets and fast food kiosks. - I would add, that as the other boats approach with there sun-seeking tourists, the place does become a bit like Princes Street in Edinburgh during the festival.. So rather busy!!. I am only glad I went before peak season.

We were picked up just after 16:00 and our glorious speedboat retraced it's steps (though missing out the caves). We sped past the many other boats, music blasting & bouncing off the waves. I would thoroughly recommend STANDING on the boat and not sitting.

What a great day out. If you are in Malta.. Just Do It!
