Loved the beautiful blue grotto. It's only a very quick tour round but the beautiful water and landscape are stunning!
Blue grotto are a group of caves, which you have to travel to by boat. For that, you need to spend 8€ for a small trip (7 minutes). It doesn't mean that Blue Grotto isn't beautiful. It means that the trip is so fast that you don't even have time to take photos.Although, I do recommend to visit the place,... More
We did a trip by minibus( rather grotty one - quite appropriate.)however we travelled across the middle of the island on routes not suitable for bigger buses and saw the rural landscape. On arrival at the Blue Grotto it was down a very steep hill to the ticket booth and jetty. Tickets for a 25 minute boat ride were 8... More
My girlfriend and I absolutely love this country & will be heading back some time in the future no doubt about it. We pre booked this tour with Ashoreplus.com who were great with us from start to finish, very reactive & friendly. Marsaxlokk was nice, busy but lovely little town next to the sea and you really get the local... More
The boat trip through the caves is really really nice, even though quite brief. But since it doesnt cost so much, you can go twice :) There is a view of the grotto as well from the hill top, but the boat trip is the thing which makes this so special.
The caves are really beautiful, but you have only 15 minutes on the boat to see everything. In addition, it's not possible to swimm. The ticket cost 8 euros. I found it expensive due to the short lenght of the excursion. You can also take your time and relax on the gardens next to the cliffs.
A set of caves where the sun light and very clear water is accentuated in blue. An interesting commentary by the boatman. The boats are small and life jackets must be worn (though no check that they are tied correctly) so be prepared to be rocked a little in the choppy waters to the caves.
Hi We went there ealier on today. Amazing place! I like how friendly and helpfull people working there were! We had spend a lot of time talking to to Birds of Pray handlerer! I have learn so much about them. It was nice to see that 17th century tower is undergoing restoration.
When we arrived to the Blue Grotto site, it was not written anywhere there were no boats this day, except on the booth itself, no reason given. It would be nice to put a sign at the entrance of the car park. If this happens to you, drive back uphill until you reach a bus stop and some stairs in... More
Friends took us to the Blue Grotto by car...I am still hoping to see it by boat before I leave! Wow is an understatement. I took a video of a small boat passing through the caves, such a beautiful site. Up where we were looking down on the water there had been a slight cave-in of the cliff area and... More
