The Blue Grotto Blue Grotto, Wied Hoxt, Qrendi, Malta is actually a number of sea caverns on the south coast of Malta, east of the fishermen's harbour Wied iż-Żurrieq in the village of Qrendi. It is located right across from the small uninhabited islet of Filfla. Fisher boats pass beneath a rocky arch, with a height of 20m, to get tourists to the grotto, because every day from sunrise until about 1 pm a unique sight can be observed here. The location of the cave combined with the sunlight lead to the water gleaming in numerous shades of blue. Several caverns mirror the brilliant phosphorescent colours of the underwater flora; other caverns show a deep dark shade of blue.
