  • Fishing village where the view of factories and a huge harbour totally spoils the landscape !!! Nevertheless holy peter's pool a 25 minute walk from the village is a beautiful place and before arriving a breathtaking view !!!

  • This is definitely one of the most distinctive places in all of Malta. In addition to the disparate colorful boats the pease presents a market all along the sea, with fresh fish, and other typical products. Negative note, unclean, in simple terms nice to look at but not consume.
