Beautiful views. It is a little bit out of the way but I used Taxify/ecabs and it was well worth the taxi trip. Just make sure to have them drop you off at the Panorama stop on the top of hill, otherwise you will have to hike up the hill to see the beautiful views of the Grotto.

Mid morning is the best time to view the Blue Grotto and other caves, as the sun shines straight into them. Paid 8 euros for an adult ticket, jumped into the tiny boat (life jackets are provided and mandatory to wear) and off we chugged around the headland. The boatman was very informative, explaining the caves and the depths of water which were so clear and unpolluted.

East to find, little to no wait and fantastic view! Take it as an extra to the Hagar Qim & Mnajdra temples, since they are just next door.

We were quite happy that we decided to go on the boat trip. It was beautiful to see the cliffs from a different angle - from the sea. And the caves were very nice indeed. For us it was of very good length, one could see the caves, take photos and admire, but it was not too long for it to get boring.

One can also swim in the little bay where the boat rides start. That was also very refreshing.

We had family visiting from the UK so we decided to do some sight seeing. We hadn't got round to this since moving to Malta in June.
Firstly, the grumpiest lady was at the ticket booth, who provided absolutely no information at all..she was not too happy to answer any questions. We got down to the boats and whilst it is true you will never wait more than 15 mins, the reason being they rush you at full speed to get off the boat. You're barely seated before they pull away and you put your life vests on and present tickets while alrewdy starting the journey. There's about 8 people squashed onto the boat which makes it hard to see when you are in the middle. The caves are pretty but you are going from cave to cave so fast along with many other boats up front and behind. No time for hovering or looking around. Impossible to take any pictures around the other on the boat or the other boats taking the tour. We went on a Sunday so perhaps it was just the worst time to go but given there were 4 of us paying 8 EUR I wonder if it would be cheaper to get your own boat and sightsee on own agenda.
