To be fair, I shouldn't just say Qrendi is rocky because the whole Malta is actually full of stones and basically, rocky. However, I guess I had seen more than enough rocks and stones in a day when I was visiting Qrendi area so I guess this place earned the name without any hesitation. Let's see what kinds of stones I found there!
The first stop I went was Ħaġar Qim which is an archaeological site. I also found another called Mnajdra where it is close to each others. I simply didn't know why I was here honestly. I had no ideas what I had just seen as these stones didn't really impress me... I guess I'm not that into history stuff... well, at least I think you wouldn't be able to tell the differences between these two sites like me, and yes, these two pictures were taken in a different site and I literally don't see any differences. LOL
Blue Grotto was the second stop and I found it so impressive and amazing. I'd say there's nothing you could actually compare to the previous stony temple ruin... it's still all about stone but why is that so much nicer? LOL I managed to take a quick boat trip into the caves and the experience was just amazing. Although you wouldn't be able to take pictures of the cave from far, you'd still be able to go underneath and see the stones and water in a closer look. These stones were so colourful and the water was so clean and clear like I had never seen such blue colour before!
Just don't forget to take a look from far from the observation deck!
Last but not least, I had my lovely dinner after I finished the 20-minute boat trip here. I didn't choose this restaurant in purpose but I thought it'd be nice to have a dinner when I came here specially for the cave. Thanks for the name so that I had an amazing time here. This meal was the most expensive one that I had when I was in Malta. It cost me about 35 euro. But I guess seafood is always expensive. I think the portion is a big for me so I didn't finish the whole thing. The seafood was fresh and tasty, especially the soup base was totally my favourite. I also loved the roasted vegetable and potato a lot. It'd be better if the meal could come quicker though as I was starving...
