NABSQNO 33S-439215-3985340. This unnamed double sea natural arch is eroded through Upper Coralline limestone. It is one of several arches that surround the famous Blue Lagoon on the west side of Comino Island, Malta. The arch is in a small islet that is quite close to Comino so many visitors swim to the islet then climb to the openings. The photo above shows a view of the arch from Comino. On the seaward (western) side of the arch, the two openings join to form a single cave. This view of the arch can only be seen from the water. It is this view that is often noticed by passengers on the ferry that connects the islands of Malta and Gozo. The larger opening has a span of about 6 meters. The seaward cave has an extent of about 25 meters.
