Get ready to feast your eyes on the epic scenery of Malta’s southwest coast. First off, you’ll drive towards Marsaxlokk, the biggest fishing village on the island. Check out the harbour – it’s crammed with an entire rainbow’s worth of fishing boats. Then make a beeline for Zurrieq where you’ll find the incredible Blue Grotto. One of the island’s most beautiful spots, it’s an impressive 50-metre deep cave that stretches underneath the main road. There’s some free time here so if you like, you can take a boat ride into the cave. If the weather’s good, you can visit some of the surrounding caves, too. Afterwards, make your way to the quaint village of Siggiewi. This part of the island is known for its soft limestone and stone quarries. Take a look at the Limestone Heritage, a quarry which has been transformed into a museum celebrating one of Malta’s ancient trades. Just so you know... The boat ride is optional and at an extra charge, there is a steep hill to access the boats, should you decide to participate.
