Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja), Zurrieq

#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.

  • We didn't take the boat ride but just stop at the parking lot from the viewpoint (on the road before descending to the horde of tourists and boats departures). There is a staircase in the middle of the car park that leads to a nice viewpoint. For us it was enough. No need for the boat tour!

  • A place still preserved on the island of Malta !!! Beautiful landscapes and certainly few explanations in French when you take the fishing boat but still beautiful landscapes !!! I recommend
