The Blue Grotto is tucked on Malta's south-western shore - an easy, albeit lengthy, trip on the superb Maltese bus system, even if you have Michael Schumacker's twin-bother as the bus-driver!!
Whilst there's not a huge amount to do once your at the Blue Grotto, there's plenty of excellent landscape to explore/photograph, some OK places to eat and, of course, the 8Euro boat trip around the Grotto's caves...not bad value in my view considering the cost of other 'attractions' elsewhere on the island. The local fishermen shuttle visitors around in the boats and, with only a maximum of 9 people on each boat, there is plenty of space and potential for pictures. What there isn't potential for, despite what some websites may suggest, is any ability to get into the water for a swim around...as I can't see the boat hanging around for you with 8 other paying guests awaiting your return. Swimming/snorkling is possible, but it's a fair swim from the water's entrance unless you are a budding 'Red Bull' cliff-diver....don't forget that you'll need to get out though!!
