Beautiful, but...

Gnejna is very beautiful, has a sandy beach, and not over crowed. The tour books are correct on those points. However, we were a little disappointed to find that the swimming areas are dominated by a rocky bottom, so BRING WATERSHOES. Nothing we read abou

Ta' Hagrat Temples

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).

Skorba comprises a megalithic temple and a Neolithic settlement. The former belongs to the three-apsed type and is datable to 3600 to 3200 before Christ. A number of huts were discovered to its west. Their excavation in the 1960s provided a rare opportunity to get to know better the temple builders and their immediate ancestors.

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.
