Amazing view of the sea and the caves. The experience was unforgettable! You could do scuba diving to the near caves and ship wrecks where you can observe the natural flora and fauna, you can go on a boat trip to the caves, or just swim in the little coast next to the caves.

Arrived eventually by hire car, probably easier to go by tour bus or ordinary bus as cheaper and easier to find. However hot day with a little sea breeze.parking available and two restaurants at the top. To get to the grotto you have to walk down to the small boat launch which is quite steep but could assess it by... More

What a wonderful natural wonder. Stunning views and lovely friendly locals to guide you around. The colours in the caves are just so beautiful, I struggle to find words to help me describe what I see. I would highly recommend a visit if you are in Malta.

One of the must do things in Malta, it was great to see from the cliffs and then you must go on the boat ride to see them from the water which is only €8 per person. There are cafes to have something to eat or a coffee and they are great value for money. This was the best experience... More

Ok so the first thing you need to know that if you do the boat trip you're in a pretty small boat! I'm not a great swimmer, and my wife has a tendency towards sea sickness, so when we'd paid our money we were both a bit disturbed to see that the boats were quite small, holding a maximum of...

If you are on Malta for just one day by cruise ship or if you stay longer on Malta take time to visit the Blue Cave / Grotto on Malta. You can reach it by Hop on Hop off bus, or be local busess from Valletta. Once you are there you will enjoy the view over the sea. Walk down... More

We were on a hop on hop off tour and hopped off here (as did nearly everyone). We ignored the expensive tourist shops and went straight down to the boats. For €10 each we got a 20 minute boat ride out to several sea caves with deep blue very clear water. It was very enjoyable.

We drove to the Blue Grotto and stopped at the top and the view was amazing. The Rocky Mountain that goes directly to the sea. Lots of grottos and the color of the water is georgeous. We drove down the hill to the town to take a ride on a boat but unfortunately there were 4 buses and the wait... More
