Tourists, as a rule, dream of going to Malta for two reasons: visit historical monuments and admire unique landscapes. One of the main landscapes opens at the Blue Grotto: this is the geological highlight of the island, attracting people from all over the world. You can go to the grotto on your own by bus / rental car or with an organized excursion: both options have advantages.
The Blue Grotto is located on the southwestern coast of Malta: it is a network of grottoes and caves that go deep into the cliffs to a distance of 45 meters - lovers of rocks and caves fall in love with this place in the first second.
If you want, rent a boat with a guide: he organizes a trip along the grottoes, but the necessary condition is the calm of the sea. If there are even small waves, the excursion will be denied even for double and triple cost. However, it will be denied for the 100-fold price too - in bad weather the water in the grottoes rises and travel by boat is unsafe for life.
The Blue Grotto is named after a special shade of water: the composition of minerals and the glare of the sun make the sea incredibly beautiful, bright blue. Take at least a thousand photographs against the backdrop of cliffs and water: here are bewitching landscapes that do not let go of long hours. In the distance you will see the island of Filfla, menacingly rising from the water.
From the grotto you can see the famous Dingli cliffs, protruding into the sea at 253 meters. Of course, there is no sandy beach, but you can dive while admiring the magnificent underwater world. The water is clear, and in the summer it is very warm - up to 25 degrees Celsius.
- Just 2 kilometers away are the megaliths of Hajar Im and Mnaidra: temples wich were built about 5 thousand years ago.
- The Blue Grotto has its own website: it has a large collection of photos and videos.
- The nearest public transport stop is called: "Blue Grotto".
- An organized excursion includes a visit to the fishing village of Marsaxlok with famous restaurants.
The object belongs to natural objects (grottoes).
