The temple of Ħaġar Qim, dating between 3600 – 3200 BC, a period known as the Ġgantija phase stands on a hilltop overlooking the sea and the islet of Fifla. At the bottom of the hill, only 500m away, lies another remarkable temple site, found above the Southern cliffs (Heritage Malta). The tour proceeds to the Blue Grotto, a natural beauty offering a diversity of flora and fauna and a mecca for divers. Marsaxlokk, a quaint village with colourful boats, active fishermen and an open market concludes this tour.
