The earliest evidence of human settlement which was over 7,000 years is also found here.
We then continue to the famous Blue Grotto. Here you can take a 25-minute boat trip which explores the incredible beauty of this natural wonder and is a “must-do” during this tour. The grotto and neighbouring system of sea caves are home to brilliant phosphorescent marine life, as you enter the caves the clarity of the azure sea is simply amazing. The boat trip is optional (extra service).
Our final stop offers you the opportunity to have a dip in the cool Mediterranean Sea. Ghar Lapsi is a unique and hidden little cave bay with a view over the tiny islet of Filfla. It’s rocky shoreline form a natural swimming pool with crystal clear and fantastic azure blue/green waters perfect for a quick swim, approx. a 1 hour stop. The bay is not suitable for non-swimmers, however close by is a bar where non swimmers can sip a cool drink whilst enjoying the scenery.
