5. Ta' Hagrat Temples
3.5 based on 75 reviews
Set in the heart of Mgarr - a village in Northwest Malta - and smaller than most other sites of a similar nature, Ta' Hagrat is home to two well-preserved structures. The site was excavated between 1923 and 1926 with some other minor interventions in 1953 and in the 1960s. The larger of the two buildings dates from the earliest phases of megalithic construction - the Ggantija phase (3600 - 3200 BC).

Rented snorkling gear
Staff was friendly, prices are okay and the assortment is okay. We rented some snorkling-gear before we went into the water and was a mistake: the ocean was blue but not clear. Nothing to see really, difficult to snorkle anyway because of the rocks underneath the surface. Our own fault for not checking the ocean first... Also rented an umbrella which will be hammered into the beach-sand for you on the spot you will appoint - nice.
