What To Expect

Leisure is the name of the game on Sunday mornings in Malta, and this shopping and sightseeing trip makes the most of Malta's scenery and local culture. You'll head to the renowned Blue Grotto, before visiting the fishing village of Marsaxlokk to stroll around its weekly market. The day concludes with a trip to the Għar Dalam cave. Micheal, one of our expert local guides, says, 'If you like to eat fish and seafood, Marsaxlokk won't disappoint. It's packed with great restaurants and market day brings the freshest produce to town, much of it picked or caught the same day.'We'll kick off with a visit to one of Malta's most famous natural sights – the Blue Grotto of Wied Iz-Zurrieq. It's a 50-metre-deep natural cave with a huge arch that stretches out to sea. The caves get their name from the light reflecting off the water, which creates a dazzling blue colour. An optional boat trip into the grotto is available.Then we'll head to Marsaxlokk – one of the most picturesque spots in the country. This quaint fishing village hosts a large market down by the waterfront – make sure you check out the colourfully painted ‘luzzu' boats floating in the harbour. As well as freshly caught fish, there'll also be locally grown fruit and veg, Maltese wines, cold cuts, cheeses and leather goods. After plenty of time for shopping and lunch, we'll finish the day with a trip to Għar Dalam cave, where the earliest evidence of human presence in Malta, around 7,400 years old, has been unearthed by archaeologists.
