Create an itinerary including Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja)
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.

  • Amazing View. I recommend first come to blue grotto and then to Hagar qium. It is possible to see it and then catch the same bus which we arrived to blue grotto. 74 as I remember.

  • What a great experience. I wanted to drive the boat, by the guide said NO. I am from the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes (Minnesota) so I'm not some random fool 👀! Bring the kids...
  • Very picturesque location in Malta. You can visit from up close only with a boat. From the top there is a very nice location for pictures. On the negative side is that there is no parking spot, and cars usually park temporarily where the bus stop is.
