I'm blue, da ba de, da ba die.

Delve into the islands ancient history when we visit the unique Ghar Dalam Cave and explore this huge cavern. Here you can see bones of dwarf elephants, hippopotami and other species from the Pleistocene Age, a staggering 180,000 years ago! The earliest evidence of human settlement which was over 7,000 years is also found here.

We continue to famous Blue Grotto. The grotto and neighboring system of sea caves are home to brilliant phosphorescent marine life. 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.

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. You can easily get in and out using ladders. The bay is not suitable for non swimmers, however overlooking the bay is a bar where non swimmers can sip a cool drink whilst enjoying the scenery.
