It will depend how long you have. The Azure Window has a great view whereas the approach to the Blue Grotto before going down for the boats.

Just don't forget they are on different islands so you ought to visit both

Are you getting the Blue Grotto on Malta muddled up with the Blue Lagoon on Comino?

I will be one week, so i think it is not enouh time to see both

Blue Grotto,Zurrieq and Azure window. I will live in Saint Julien.

Is it worth to go to Azure window or it is enough to see blue grotto?

The Azure Window has better sights, such as the 8.08 evening sunset and remarkable rock formations but the boat tour is more fun in Blue Grotto and there are more restaurants to choose from.

If you are planning to see the Azure window set a day aside and spend more time on Gozo. A lot depends also on how you are planning to get around. I would recommend hiring a car. Get there early and do some snorkelling in the blue hole (underneath the Azure Window - and not to be confused with either the Blue Grotto or the Blue Lagoon). If you dive then the Azure Window/Blue Hole provides some very nice diving and most schools combine a dive there with one in the inland sea which is very close. The inland sea is an excellent dive. So a morning at the Azure window/inland sea/blue hole then lunch in Victoria. Pootle about Victoria in the early afternoon. Ferry back to Malta. Good day out.

You can do the Blue Grotto either on public transport, sightseeing bus, excusrion or with a hire car. I would do both personally but it depends on how much time you have.
