Blue Grotto, Marsaxlokk and Megalithic Temples


Considered one of Malta's most famous attractions, the beautiful Blue Grotto is an extremely unique natural phenomenon.

Our day and the time we start the tour is flexible and is meant to accommodate your schedule and interests.

You may board your boat and travel along the rocky coastline to the massive arch which marks the entrance to the Blue Grotto. Here you will see six caves carved by years of relentless pounding by the sea, of which the Blue Grotto is the largest and most impressive.

You may also visit the prehistoric temples of Malta which are unique in all the world. They are the oldest standing stone structures which remain to us from ancient times. They are older than Stonehenge and older than the Pyramids. Because of their uniqueness and beauty, these temples are deservedly designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Afterwards, enjoy some free time to explore the marketplace at the typical fishing village of Marsaxlokk or drive to the beautiful 'Ghar Lapsi' bay for swimming (Summer only).

Itinerary

Our day and the time we start the tour is flexible and is meant to accommodate your schedule and interests.

Example:

Drive to Wied iz-Zurrieq and see the Hagar Qim Temples. This is an optional visit. If not interested in visiting we can make a brief photo stop of the external view.

Drive to the Blue Grotto and stop for a panoramic view of the impressive natural rock structures. Since the boat trip is optional, free time will be given at the Blue Grotto. One may join the boat ride, swim or wonder around the little harbour where one may find various cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops.

Drive to the quaint fishing village of Marsaxlokk and enjoy some minutes of free time for independent sightseeing including exploring the market place and taking photos of the colorful Maltese fishing boats. This can be replaced by swimming at 'Ghar Lapsi' Bay. The rocky shoreline here is perfect for snorkelling enthusiasts and the inlet makes a good entry point for divers.

Wear comfortable walking shoes.
