Hi 3 of us are going to Porto Azzuro just wondering if it is best to get a taxi or to use public transport. Does anyone have any idea of costs for each. Thanks
was 22.00 euros or pounds
The Maltese use euro.
The X1 takes you from outside the airport to xemxijia, get off outside the Porto Sol then its a short 1 min walk up the hill. The cost is around 2 euros compared with a taxi which is around 25 euros, the jorney by bus is approx 1 hr compared to taxi which is half the time! i use both and the bus is good value.
You can also get a bus pass for the week at the airport which is around 12 euros, you can use this for any bus throughout malta, there is a ticket machine at the airport if the bus ticket office is closed.
taxi cost £22 return, yes we had to share with another family going in the same direction, we were told to be ready 2hours before flight but mini bus arrived 3hours before because it had to pick up another family from Dolmen. If I had known this we would have paid less and just booked a shuttle transfer.
