South of Malta tour
Tour duration – 4hrs or as requested
During the South of Malta tour I will give you the opportunity to see the natural side of the southern part of the island which is largely undeveloped and unspoiled. This part of the island is well known for the prehistoric temples and other historical remains, together with an array of authentic Maltese towns, rural villages and natural caves such as the beautiful blue grotto.
You may board your boat and travel along the rocky coastline to the massive arch which marks the entrance to the blue Grotto. Here you will see six caves carved by years of relentless pounding by the sea, of which the Blue Grotto is the largest and the most impressive.
You may also visit the prehistoric temples of Malta which are unique in all the world. They are the oldest free standing stone structures which remains to us from prehistoric times. They are older than Stonehenge in England and older than the pyramids.These temples are designated as Unesco World Heritage sites because of their uniqueness.
Afterwards, enjoy some free time to explore the marketplace at the typical fishing village of Marsaxlokk or drive to the beautiful ‘Ghar Lapsi’ bay for swimming (summer only).
HAGAR QIM AND MNAJDRA TEMPLES
Hagar Qim and Mnajdra temples are Unesco World Heritage site situated inside in an archaeological park. They are consider as one of the oldest free standing monuments in the world and the most architectural complex on the Maltese islands. There date back to 3600 BC and one can still feel a strong presence of the past, being that it still surrounded with countryside like it was originally in the prehistory.
Mnajdra temples are perfectly aligned with the summer solstice, winter solstice, the spring and autumn equinox. One can still see this phenomena happening today on the respective days.
