Hagar Qim Temple, Limestone Heritage, and Market

Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Depart from your Malta hotel (pickup from selected hotels), and travel by climate-controlled coach bus to Hagar Qim, the prehistoric site that overlooks the wide expanse of the blue Mediterranean and the islet of Filfla. 

    Head next to the dazzling Blue Grotto, a cluster of brightly lit caves on Malta’s rugged south coast. Here, make the most of free time to explore Wied iz-Zurrieq harbor and the shoreline independently, or choose to join an optional boat excursion (own expense) to see inside the caves.

    Next, stop off for a 3-course lunch with a glass of wine at a local restaurant before continuing to the typical Maltese fishing village of Marsaxlokk. Amble about the postcard-perfect village and snap photos of the candy-colored iuzzus (fishing boats) moored off the coast. You'll also have time to explore the local market set right on the water.

    Finally, visit Ghar Dalam. Nicknamed the Cave of Darkness, this prehistoric grotto is one of the earliest forms of evidence that humans settled in Malta. Explore the public areas with your guide, and then enjoy free time inside the Ghar Dalam museum.

    Your day tour concludes with a drop-off back at the hotel.

    Please note: The sea around the Blue Grotto is rocky, so boat rides are subject to cancellation.

    Gozo is a lovely, lovely place but the highlight of the day is Hagar Qim Temple and Blue Lagoon. The temples were such a beautiful but the blue lagoon boat ride was unbelievable. We went through the caves into a sea of blue caused by the Limestone and coral. We were shown a very

    I would say a must visit if in Malta, a steep but short walk down and up, (there are electric buggies) A short boat trip but you get really really close to the cliffs and go in to some of the deeper caves. Well worth the cost.
