An Amazing beach with plenty of swimming spots in summer, and nice hikes for the winter and autumn season..
Bay featuring a secluded beach bordered by clay slopes, rocky outcrops & a 17th-century watch tower.
A hidden gem, not often used by tourists so much less crowded than Mellieha or Golden Bay. Good snorkelling on the right day
A 15 minute drive will take you to the closest beach of Gnejna. While you are there check out some of the typical restaurants serving rabbit, snails and other Maltese delicacies in Mgarr.
“This restaurant is particularly known for a good rabbit, ask for rabbit in vine gravy sauce and I promise no regrets:) ”

“These war rooms were the headquarters of Malta’s defence during World War II. The underground operation rooms show exactly how it would have been set out during the time with a large original wall map still in place. See the desk occupied by General Eisenhower during Operation Husky (the plan to invade Sicily) from where it was all organised. In later years, the premises became the headquarters for the Royal Navy’s Mediterranean fleet.”
“This place is very unique and it is full of beautiful animals. Ducks, Gooses, Chickens, Rabbits, Guinea pigs and other kind of birds. The place is made in a style of a Hippy Village. Not always open! ”
