Blue Grotto

The Blue Grotto is a monumental cave carved into the limestone rocks by the waves of the Mediterranean sea in the southeastern part of Malta. It is a unique feature of nature.
It is the largest of the group of six adjacent caves. It is over 40 meters high and 26 meters deep. There are two entrances to the inside of the cave. The water in the Blue Grotto is transparent and shimmers with shades of blue and turquoise in the sun's rays.
The other caves are less impressive, but also have a variety of colors and shades.
Blue Grotto is one of the most popular tourist attractions of the island - it is visited by over 100,000 tourists each year.
How to get to the Blue Grotto?
The Blue Grotto and other caves were built on the cliff wall - so no one should be surprised by the fact that it is best to see them from the sea.
Small licensed tourist boats leave the bay of Wied i-Zurrieq. Tickets can be purchased on site at the ticket office. The cruise takes between 20 and 25 minutes. During the trip, we will sail to the Blue Grotto and other caves, however the exact route and itinerary depends on the weather conditions
