Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja), Zurrieq

3.8
#2 of 17 in Nature in Island of Malta
Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja) represents one of Malta's best-known and most beautiful sights. Every morning sun rays shine into this system of sea caves and create a breathtaking display of lights in a range of blues. The water inside the grotto is transparent, which makes the rich marine life clearly visible. This is a choice place for diving and snorkeling. On the outside, the caves feature some of Malta's most magnificent arched rock formations. The site is only accessible by boat, but several tours will take you here. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Zurrieq fast, fun, and easy.
