Blue Grotto & Marsaxlokk Tour
Visit the beautiful natural caves at Blue Grotto with a boat tour around the caves, and head over to Marsaxlokk Market, for an authentic Maltese experience.
You will first drive to The Blue Grotto, which is actually a number of sea caverns on the southern coast of Malta, west of the Wied iz-Zurrieq harbour and across the small uninhabited island of Filfla. Everyday from sunrise until about 13:00, a unique sight can be observed here. The cave's location combined with the sunlight lead to the water mirroring shows numerous shades of blue. Several caverns mirror the brilliant phosphorescent colours of the underwater flora; other caverns show a deep dark shade of blue. If weather permits, you can do a 40 minute boat trip around the caves for an extra cost.
You will then drive to the fishing village of Marsaxlokk. Marsaxlokk is very popular among tourists and locals because fresh fish and seafood caught during the same morning can be bought here. The market is very interesting and attractive as many different items are sold. Although the market was originally a fish market, nowadays it has developed and also sells locally produced honey, fruit jams, wine, as well as vegetables, souvenirs and clothes. Free time will be given in this picturesque village.
