We will first drive to the Blue Grotto. The Blue Grotto is actually a number of sea caverns on the southern coast of Malta, west of the Wied iz-Zurrieq Harbour and across the small uninhabited islet of Filfla. Every day from sunrise until about 1pm, a unique sight can be observed here.
The cave's location combined with the sunlight lead to the water mirroring shows numerous shades of blue. Several caverns mirror the brilliant phosphorescent colours of the underwater flore and other caverns show a deep dark shade of blue.
If weather permits, you can do a 25 minute boat trip around the caves for an extra cost. We will then drive to the fishing village of Marsaxlokk.
Marsaxlokk is a very popular attraction for tourists and locals because of the fresh fish and seafood caught during the same morning, which can be bought. The market is very interesting and attractive as many different items are sold. Although the market was originally a fish market, it has developed and now it also sells locally produced honey, fruit jams, wine as well as vegetables, souvenirs and clothes. There will be some free time given in this picturesque village.
Start Time: 10:00am
