Comino, Malta.

In the tiny and almost uninhabited island of Comino, in the Maltese archipelago, there is a place that cannot be bluer: the Blue Lagoon . The name is due to the shades of blue of the water which in this area is crystal clear and makes the Blue Lagoon one of the most scenic areas in the Mediterranean thanks also to the richness and beauty of the flora and fauna. Malta, Gozo and Comino are a marvel to know from the sea, also because many coves and beaches are not reachable from land, renting a boat in Malta is simple and not excessively expensive, here is the link with the suggestions of Boatsandgo.


Cala Mondragò, Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain ("Cala Mondragò, Maiorca (E)" by Irene Grassi (sun sand & sea) is licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0).


Mallorca, Spain.

In the south of Spain and precisely in the Balearic archipelago, on the island of Mallorca, Cala Mondragò is a dip in the blue. Mallorca is famous for its coves and beaches and also for its lively nightlife, but moving away from the capital Palma the pace becomes slower and the places less crowded. Cala Mondragò is located on the west side of the island, a very white and rather small beach flanked by two rocky promontories that plunge into the blue water. The cove is difficult to access and to fully enjoy it it may be a good idea to get to know it from the sea. On Boatsandgo there are hundreds of offers to rent a boat in Mallorca, here you will find the link with the best offers.


Sidi Bou Said, the blue city of Tunisia ("Rue principale de Sidi Bou Said avant la foule !" by Romain Cloff is licensed under CC BY 2.0).


Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia.

Not far from the capital Tunis, overlooking the gulf of the same name, Sidi Bou Said is the blue city of Tunisia. The white houses are full of blue details, decorations, curtains, window frames are colored blue and create a beautiful contrast. So impressive that it has often been chosen by internationally renowned artists not only as a set but also as a place of residence.
