Blue Grotto & Sunday Market at Marsaxlokk Fishing Village


Adult: €28

Child: €20

We will start the Blue Grotto boat tour with a visit 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 harbor, and across the small uninhabited islet of Filfla. Every day from sunrise until about 1300 hrs, a unique sight can be observed here. The cave's location combined with the sunlight lead to the water mirroring numerous shades of blue.  If weather permits, you can do a 25-minute Grotto 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 fresh fish and seafood caught during the same morning can be bought.  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. Free time will be given in this picturesque village.
