From the shelter of the swimming area entrance the cavern system is not obvious, but once underwater it soon becomes clear why this is Malta’s most popular shallow cavern system. Ghar Lapsi is situated on the south west side of Malta and is often chosen as the second dive following the Blue Grotto.
Spectacular light filtration and multiple entry/ exits provide divers with every opportunity to enjoy this impressive system. Ghar Lapsi is best visited in the early afternoon when rays of sunlight streak through every crack and fissure in the rock. Once the cavern has been explored divers exit to the open sea and an expanse of fine white sand interspersed with ridges, valleys and swim throughs teeming with aquatic life and colour. Ghar Lapsi is also popular simply as a relaxing afternoon dive.
Ghar Lapsi is situated 45 minutes drive from AquaVenture.
