“Blue grotto”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Lovely rock formations. Access to the boats is down a fairly steep road. Malta apparently gets windy and the day we visited it was windy and the sea was quite rough. The tour guide thought that they might stop the boat trips because of this. Care is needed when transferring to the boats because of the swell. Be ready to ride the waves and get a bit wet. The blue certainly was vivid and we explored a few of the alcoves and caves including the Blue Grotto. Thought that the caves on Majorca and Capri were better but that is personal taste. It is so sad that such a lovely beauty spot is marred by litter at the viewpoint. On the return journey we visited the pretty fishing village of Marsaxlokk. The harbour has many colourfully painted fishing boats and plenty of restaurants and cafes.

“Beautiful location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

This location is a wonder.....the sea is so deep and blue; the caves are all spectacular especially Blue Grotto. It is a place to be visited at least once in a lifetime. I recommend it to all visitors coming to Malta.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Great experience with the boat trip we took. It was really enjoyable and very interesting. The clean and crystal sea water in and around the Blue Grotto were fantastic. I will visit again for sure as it was a memorable holiday.
