About Blue Grotto:

Amazing cliffband on the Southwestern tip of the island. Pillar protrudes out from wall and overhangs deep blue water for roughly 25 meters. Height of pillar is probably 100 meters and the height of the entire cliff face is maybe 150 meters. There are several "anchors" at the top, though much of the climbing in the "grotto" area is overhanging and rates around 5.hard.
Nearest town or city: Wied iz-Zurrieq
Directions: Park at Wied iz-Zurrieq fishing village then walk back up the only access road till you can take a path through a rubble wall on the right. This leads to the cliff edge and a view of Red Wall.
