Fun in the sun at St Peter’s Pool

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.

    • Hmmm, basically you have to go past the Delimara Power Station (so it’s to the right of you), you carry on and there will be some signs. Lots of narrow, bumpy roads but you’ll find yourself at a little car park at the end of it. Hope that helps, it’s a really beautiful spot!
