Malta Beaches – Blue Grotto

Rating: ★★★★☆

Wied iz-Zurrieq - Boat Departure Station for Blue GrottoMore known for its main attraction, the Blue Grotto, the village of Zurrieq, also offers visitors a chance to swim. There are in fact a few facilities for swimmers, as well as a few bars and restaurants where to rest. With this said, it’s also true that the place is nothing too speactacular as a beach, and it’s much more reccomended for the chance you have to get into a luzzu (Maltese colored boat) and get closer to the magnificient caves in the area. Actually all of the boat traffic makes it quite dangerous for swimmers. At any case, just make sure you get there early in the morning, or you risk of finding yourself starring at boat oil reflections in the water, rather than natural light effects. Weather conditions permitting, boats run in fact all day long.

You can get to the Blue Grotto from the town of Zebbug, in the southern part of the island of Malta; there are plenty of road signs taking you there, or you might also follow indications to Zurrieq, which is the village from where boat tours depart. To get there by Bus you have to take either line 38 or 138.
