Explore a traditional Maltese market and marvel at the clear blue waters lapping the rugged coastline.

Wied iz-Zurrieq is a small harbour village with calm waters that provide shelter for passing fishermen. Near to this site lies the beautiful Blue Grotto. The cave's location and the way the sunlight reflects off the surface of the water leads to a stunning mirror effect with multiple bright shades of blue.

You continue on to discover Marsaxlokk, a small fishing village on the southern tip of the island. Stroll through the Maltese market and admire the colourful boats, known as luzzus, that fill the bay. This village is extremely popular with locals and tourists alike, with the market selling fresh fish and seafood caught that very morning.

The landscape is beautiful the trip to the Grotto is made possible by the local fishermen who are very experienced and friendly. The natural beauty of the Grotto and its water is something breathtaking. I highly recommend it!

A nice little tour that includes a stop at the Blue Grotto (for an extra fee) that is well worth it. Unfortunately we had a cloudy day, and the seas were a bit rough, but the fishing boat operators were very skilled at navigating the seas. I could still see the lovely blue color of the water in these little caves, even thought the sun was not shining. Stephanie was our guide for this tour, and she was a very nice lady, who shared a lot of interesting information about the Maltese Islands in general while we were en route.

The Blue Grotto is amazing, but the time we spent on the bus for hotel pick ups was ridiculous. the driver and the translator were great. Because of the time waste at pick up locations we did not have time for lunch.
