The color of the water was amazing, and even though it was a bit of a stormy day, it is stunning. Get on the boat trip along the edges of the cliffs and into the caves, the water is amazing and the colors mind-blowing. Stunning

This place is quite remote and hard to reach - it is accessible via the 201 bus from either Rabat or Airport. Once there, it is a downhill walk to the boat ramp area, where adult tickets are 8 Euro.

Take the small boat ride around the cliff faces and into the caves below. He boats only run when the sea is fairly smooth or has moderate chop. Best seen around mid to late morning while the sun beckons into the water creating an amazing colourful spectacle on the sea floor. You'll visit several caverns of which one goes a... More

The blue grotto was a great experience. From the clear blue sky to the mountains as well as the tiny roads, it was fabulous.
