Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja), Zurrieq

4.2
#2 of 10 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.

  • We traveled to Blue cave from Sliema to Valletta and to Blue cave with public bus transport. Cave is west from national Aeroport Malta not far away, time depends on time and traffic but usually takes ...  more »
  • If you come to Malta, take the time to visit "Blue Grotto". It is possible to have a walk of 20 minutes for € 8 to go to magical places. Caves in the cliffs with color sets sublime. The only negative point is maybe the lack of communication on the part of the driver of the boat. Parking a little higher is "guarded" by a colourful character who asks a small room for this work.

  • Scenic flights around the boat. Will lies within the main cave bathed in pale light. She was certainly beautiful, but car rental shopping area, but purposely bus I go also?.

  • A real area of natural beauty, the boat tours are good and are worth doing. The shops where you get the boats are OK not the cheapest as you can imagine. The are is great for snorkeling as long as you stay out of the way of the boats, it is also very busy for scuba divers diving the grotto and a wreckage near by.
  • Nice trip around the coast. Beautiful caves, pure blue water and a nice view of the sea. But we were actually a little bit dissapointed. In the pictures the Blue Grotto looks more exceptional.
  • Great sceneries. Superb walks and swimming spots
  • Wonderful place, You must see that.
  • I love the sea caves and the water is so clear and blue. Nice boat trips out to the groto at a very reasonable €8.00
