Gozo, Malta, has a multitude of underwater attractions to explore from the shore or by boat. Divers can see breathtaking caves, tunnels, wrecks, reefs and bays. If you consider the profusion of marine life and good visibility it is not hard to understand why the diving here is consistently voted amongst the best in Europe. Richard Salter's Diving Gozo & Comino covers a huge 57 dives on Gozo and 14 on Comino, including (to name a few) the Blue Hole, Inland Sea and Tunnel, Santa Maria Caves, Double Arch, Reqqa Point, Billinghurst Cave and the wrecks Cominoland, Karwela, Xlendi Ferry and P31.

Original site maps include suggested routes, the location of underwater caves and swim-throughs, depth and features. Photographs from a variety of contributors show both Gozo's underwater scenery and the topside landscape. Written by a vastly experienced resident instructor and guide, Diving Gozo & Comino: The essential guide to an underwater playground features both shore and boat dives, including some sites which are very rarely explored. Whether researching a self-guided trip or diving with one of Gozo's many professional centres this book will help you to pick and plan safe and fun dives.

But not only that - Diving Gozo & Comino also contains information about the island's rich history, fascinating tourist sites, celebratory village festas and delicious original food.

* Diving Gozo & Comino includes changes caused by the collapse of the Azure Window at Dwejra. Although an incredibly sad loss, this natural event was just one of an infinite number which have sculpted the coastline of the Maltese islands over the millennia, as divers can see better than most. Underwater the layout of the dive site was altered with the landscape containing new swim-throughs and shallower parts, making it accessible to more divers. The adjacent Blue Hole was unaffected.
