Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja), Zurrieq

4.3
#2 of 11 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.

  • The boat trip to the Blue Grotto is a must for any visitor to Malta. The cave is unique and beautiful and the "retro boat trip" fits perfectly. The price of the cruise was € 8.

  • Beautiful landscape however careful pourse Park parking is small. To avoid bars and restaurants they are not friendly with tourists

  • Not the sort of thing you can do every day. The trip around the Grotto & coves in a small boat is, to my mind, very good value & good fun.  more »

  • Amazing spot of natural beauty. Take the boat ride at $8eu, its wonderful and a little exciting to be in a little boat in a big ocean. There are $1 electric cabs to take you up and down the hill. Best way to see Malta us to hire a local taxi for the day at $20 per hour to be your guide.
  • Fantastic place to visit. Worth the time. Pay attention to tranportation if you use public transport, the service is not reliable snd you might get straded there if you visit it in the evening.
  • Breathtaking view of beautiful natural caves
  • 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.
  • Great place with amazing view
