People have been flocking to the Blue Grotto for decades to see the spectacular caves and admire the crystal clear waters.
Located on the southern coast of Malta, west of Wied iz-Zurrieq, the Blue Grotto has become a much-visited tourist attraction. From Victorian times, soldiers stationed in Malta would ask Maltese fishermen to take them to see these caves by boat.
Over time, these trips became popular sightseeing tours, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors. The boat trips take people in and around the caves, allowing them to see the glorious colours and shades of blue that make the grotto so spectacular.
Today, the Blue Grotto is a big Instagram favourite. The caves also featured in the 2004 film Troy, starring Brad Pitt.
