Blue Grotto, Malta

The Blue Grotto Malta is a magnificent shimmering structure located in the south east of Malta. The 30 metre (approx.) high arch invites you in where you will find vibrant colours shimmering and shining under and on the surface of the water. The water is crystal clear and the underwater flora reflects phosphorescent purple, orange and green making for a spectacular light and colour show. 
The best time to see this amazing scene is early or mid morning in the summer, the sun lights up the azure waters, the bright blue sky reflecting off the surface and white sandy sea bed creating the perfect background for this magical sight. The Blue Grotto Malta Boat Tour is available from 9am from the seaside village of Zurrieq. The Blue grotto is just one of a system of seven caves to explore such as the Cat’s Cave, Honeymoon Cave & the Reflection Cave.
The waters are generally calm, especially earlier in the day during the summer period. The local area is a popular spot for diving and snorkelling due to the clear, calm and deep waters. If you don’t fancy jumping in, there are some great coastal views to be had here, especially from the viewing platforms.
Most of the popular tourist sites in Malta are found on the North or West of the island but the Blue Grotto should be on everyone’s must see list when visiting Malta. You can get to the Blue grotto quite easily from most resorts with bus routes passing regularly, some involve one change. Car hire is a simple way to get around the island and get to the Blue Grotto – in Malta they drive on the left hand side too!
You can purchase Blue Grotto Malta tickets prior to travel, from your local rep or on arrival along with many other great tours, activities and excursions. The Blue Grotto Malta Excursion normally lasts approx. 20 minutes on a traditional Maltese fishing boat.
The Blue Grotto Malta Boat Tour and visit to the nearby colourful fishing village of Marsaxlokk is definitely recommended for a day trip for all members of the family.
