The south-east coast of Malta has maintained an authentic charm, much better preserved than elsewhere on the island. Far from the busy atmosphere of the big cities, the traditional life is that of a population entirely dedicated to the sea.
You should see the colorful fishing ports and markets, where vegetables and fish are sold alongside the famous lace of Malta. Facing the east, the coast ends in the south with beautiful golden brown cliffs. At this place, the water has dug caves that reflect the turquoise blue waters of the sea.
It seems that the clearest waters of the Mediterranean are concentrated here. Tours in the open sea, strolls in the port and visits to archaeological sites are all necessary to make the most of a holiday here.
On the coast, you can visit several caves. The best known is the Blue Grotto. From the small port of Wied-iz-Zurrieq, take a fishing boat that will take you to visit all of the surrounding caves. For a better view, take the trip around 10:00 am. On the land, Ghar Dalam is the prehistoric cave, which is the most interesting on the island (paid entrance). There you will discover fossilised skeletons of dwarf animals such as elephants and hippos!
