Ever wanted to get up close and personal with Malta’s mysterious little islet of Filfla? Well, thanks to this super cool tour organised by Heritage Malta, now you can!

On the 14th and 21st July, 2024, Senior Curator John J Borg, who has been studying the island since 1982, will reveal several interesting anecdotes about the small island during an intriguing tour around Filfla – and while it may look insignificant and tiny island, it has a very interesting narrative.

Ever wondered how this island was formed? From where it got its name? Is it true that there was a chapel on Filfla? Why did the island attract pirates? How did it end up as a bombing target? Which species live on Filfla nowadays? Why has the island been turned into a nature reserve?

During the tour, participants will enjoy a boat ride while listening to these stories and many others. A sharp lookout will also be kept for any seabirds, turtles and dolphins that may be encountered along the way.

The boat will leave from Sliema Ferries at 10am sharp and head towards Filfla, passing along the eastern and southern coast of Malta. There will be no disembarkation on Filfla and no swimming will take place around the island either. But, on its way back, the boat will make a stop next to Delimara for those who would like to swim, and then return to Sliema at 3pm

Tickets can be purchased at any Heritage Malta museum and site, and online through here.
