star-4.5
835 Reviews

The most famous of Malta’s cave complexes, the Blue Grotto is a series of nine caves whose rocky sides glow green, purple, and orange according to their mineral content. Surrounding the caves are some of the clearest, brightest cobalt-blue waters imaginable. The natural wonder got its name from British soldiers stationed in Malta in the 1950s who thought the caves were reminiscent of the Blue Grotto off the Italian island of Capri.

It's an 8 hour tour, and admissions to sights and museums are not included but they are not very expensive. We had a heavy breakfast and skipped lunch, taking time out for lunch may mean that you might not finish the tour in 8 hours. The driver was very kind and kept his cool even in the traffic of Malta. He even took us to a petting zoo not mentioned in the itinerary which overjoyed my young daughter. Recommended if you have limited time to see Malta and are a group of 3-4. Well worth it."..."
