Blue Grotto & Sunday Market at Marsaxlokk Fishing Village

Event Details


  • Witness the stunning sea caverns at the Blue Grotto, as sunlight turns the pools stunning shades of blue
  • Browse the colorful stalls at Malta's famous Sunday Market in Marsaxlokk, and bargain for fresh local items and souvenirs
  • Enjoy free time to explore pretty Marsaxlokk Village


Your 5-hour tour starts at the Blue Grotto. Made up of sea caverns on the southern coast of Malta, the Blue Grotto caverns are west of Wied iz-Zurrieq Harbor and across the small uninhabited islet of Filfla. Every day from sunrise until about 13:00 the cave's unique location allows sunlight to reflect in the water to create numerous shades of brilliant blue. Several caverns mirror the brilliant phosphorescent colors of the underwater plants. Other caverns show a deep dark shade of blue. If weather permits, you can do a 20 minute boat trip around the caves for an extra fee. You will then drive to the fishing village of Marsaxlokk. Vibrant, colorful Marsaxlokk Market offers a great opportunity to experience the local life. Browse the stalls where fresh fish and seafood are sold, and barter for honey, fruit jams, wine, vegetables, clothing, and souvenirs. You'll have free time to explore this picturesque market village before heading back.
