The Submarine cave is one of the deepest on the island!

Malta's Submarine cave is very well known for any sea enthusiasts on the island, but just in case you're yet to discover its beauty, click here to get a little teaser.

This gem is found just off the beautiful Xrobb l'Ghagin coastline in Marsaxlokk. 

Submarine cave

It's frequented mainly by kayakers who are able to get through the first 100m of this confined cave. Although it does get tricky as the cave only gets tighter as you reach the next chamber. 

In the video, you can see that after swimming through the first 100m, another tunnel leads deeper into the cave opening up to another 100m chamber.

This means that the cave is approximately 200m deep! - Making it one of the deepest caves on the island. 

This secondary tunnel can only be reached when swimming or keeping low on a SUP board due to the low entrance.

If you're adventurous enough to dive into this mysterious find, you'll be treated to a little surprise at the end of your mission - a tiny private sandy beach to finish off your cave exploration. 

Will you be exploring this gem?
