SOUTHERN MALTA CHARM

Tour Overview

This tour focuses on some of Malta’s charms as well as picturesque views in the southern part of Malta, away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. It includes caves, temples, and cliffs.

 

 

Itinerary and Duration

 

  • Ghar Dalam – Birzebbugia (1 hr)

This cave, translated to English as ‘Cave of Darkness’, is a prehistoric site containing the bone remains of animals that were stranded and subsequently became extinct in Malta at the end of the Last Glacial Maximum. It is also here that the earliest evidence of human settlement on Malta, some 7400 years ago, was discovered.

Take note of entrance fees below.

  • Hagar Qim & Mnajdra Temples – Qrendi (2 hr)

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, inscribed as part of ‘The Megalithic Temples of Malta’ in the World Heritage List.  One of the prehistoric chambers at Ħaġar Qim holds an elliptical hole which is hewn out in alignment with the Summer Solstice sunrise. At sunrise, on the first day of summer, the sun’s rays pass through this hole and illuminate a stone slab inside the chamber. A downhill walk away is the smaller temple of Mnajdra.

Take note of entrance fees below.

 

You have the option to choose either Ghar Dalam or Hagar Qim & Mnajdra Temples. However, if you wish we can also offer both options.

 

  • Zurrieq Promenade Drive (30 mins)

The tour will proceed with a drive through the Zurrieq Promenade to witness the beautiful coastal views of the southern part of the island. Here you will also see the uninhabited smallest island of the archipelago, Filfla. The island is protected and access is only possible by a special permit for educational or scientific purposes.

 

 

  • Blue Grotto – Zurrieq (1 hr)

A number of sea caverns are found here and can be accessed by boat. The location of this fascinating natural grotto combines with sunlight and the surrounding chain of caves to reflect the phosphorescent colours of the submerged flora and the deep dark shade of blue of the sea. The boat ride will take about 25 mins until you arrive at the grotto. While it is an option to take the boat ride to the grotto, we do recommend it.

  • Dingli Cliffs – Dingli (30 mins)

We will head our way back to the ferry/your accommodation in Malta through the breath-taking views of Dingli Cliffs. This is the highest point of the Maltese Islands at around 253 metres above sea-level, marked by the tiny chapel on the edge dedicated to St. Mary Madgalene.

 

 

Lunch

Lunch is not included in the price, however, we can stop at one of the locations for a small snack. You are free to bring your own snacks. We can also offer you a packed lunch at an extra cost if you wish.
