Yesterday my friend and I spent the afternoon at St Peter’s Pool. It was the first time visiting this area after wishing to for a very long time. We’d tried to find this place a few months ago but must have been driving blind because we both missed some very obvious signs – oops.
What can I say? It was everything I expected and more! The rock formations are amazing and I felt like I was somewhere else other than Malta. The sea was crystal clear which only made me wish I had a snorkel with me.
We swam, soaked up the summer rays, jumped from the rocks, drank Cisk (popular Maltese lager) and ate lots of crackers and delicious dips! It was a truly awesome day with a truly beautiful friend.
St Peter’s Pool is quite out of the way close to Marsaxlokk so you’ll probably need a car to get there but it’s absolutely worth the trek. You won’t find any facilities here so be sure to pack yourself a cooler bag full of refreshments and treats if you’re planning to stay for a few hours.
It was bitter-sweet to see a large group of English language students taking over the beach when this is said to normally be a very quiet spot but at the same time I’m happy that these kids had the chance to experience a different part of Malta instead of the usual areas in Sliema. Luckily for us, we sat in a quieter part away from the crowds with little disturbance from the masses.
Discovering these stunning little nooks, just affirms how much I have really grown to love and appreciate living in Malta. It may be tiny but it’s packed with character.
