I had visited this place in Nov and the climate was pretty awesome. This place was suggested to me by some of the localities and is definitely a must see place. I loved the scenery from this place. You can get tickets and visit the caves through the boats. We loved the blue scenery all around this place. I also... More

A stunning cliff side view that absolutely took my breath away. This costs nothing to see and you would be doing yourself a disservice if you miss out on this view while in Malta!

Well worth the €8 each for the boat ride. About 20 mins and take warm clothes as it can be cold (in March). You must go on a boat to see the full effect of the caves and it was just spectacular.....

Definitely one of the top attractions of Malta. Beautiful views, clear water and exciting boat trip. I recommend you to take the tour, it costs you only 8 Euro and around 25 minutes but believe me it's an unforgettable experience.

I am amazed that people gave this 1-2 stars. The views are stunning and the water is incredibly clear. Do yourself a favor and book a private tour so you can get more time and you're not grouped in with a huge crowd.

Little fishing boats take 9 people at a time for €8 each., for a 20 /25 min trip. When we went we were the last on the boat and hence sat one in front of the other. The sea was choppy and I agree with the reviewer who said this is not for those who get seasick or are a... More

Took a boat tour to the blue grotto today- absolutely beautiful, 8 euro for adults. It was in the beautiful Maltese fishing boats, we called the number we found on a website to check they were running first! Would go back!

Had the place to ourselves, obviously the boats were not running so took a walk along the cliffs and viewed the grotto from above. Perhaps seen in a more natural manner with no boats in the way
