Blue Grotto

One of the favourite tourist attractions in Malta, the Blue Grotto is a large, domed cave. Only accessible from the sea, the cave owes its name to the deep azure colour of the water inside. Look just below the water level and you will be able to see bright coral clinging precariously to the inner walls of the Blue Grotto.

Ghar Lapsi

Ghar Lapsi is a little cove in the low limestone cliffs in the south west of Malta. A popular watering hole, Ghar Lapsi is a natural lido and a good spot for snorkelling and diving.

The enclosed cove is situated at the bottom of twisting road which leads to a car park. Across the road from the ghar lapsi restaurant is a steep slope and stair case leading to the cove.
