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.

  • this place is worth a 10 min look. the road approaching the viewpoint is scenic in itself, but need to be creative in finding a parking spot for a photo stop

  • I am very glad we went because the colors of the water are amazing but it felt like a Disneyworld ride. Pack everyone quickly in a small boat go through for 5 or 10 minutes in a line if other small boats, jump off quickly hike up a very steep hill to your bus of pay $1.00 per person to ride up in a crowded golf cart. I would not go again.
  • Awesome place. Great scenery, not to be missed if visiting Malta. The boat tour is a must do. Waters can be rough at times but it’s a must do memorable experience. Mesmerising caves and beautiful place. PS: If you are doing the Malta Aquarium, please do the grotto boat tour first as the ticket for boat tour has a voucher for Malta Aquarium.
