Fomm Ir-Rih – (Ref: pfm140191)

A lovely palette of earthy colors, Mediterranean blue skies and Maltese lagoon blues in this panoramic image of Fomm Ir-Rih bay. Fomm ir-Rih is one of the wildest and most secluded beaches in Malta The Bay lies near Bahrija and it is the most isolated and wildest beach on Malta but also one of the most beautiful ones. Fomm Ir-Rih is pebbly and is favourite among snorkelers, divers and to people who like secluded beaches. Fomm Ir-Rih Bay’s remote beach offers fantastic views of cliffs, valleys, deep blue Mediterranean Sea as well as peace and tranquillity and is well worth a visit. Fomm...

Ghajn Tuffieha and Gnejna Sea Inlets (Ref: pfm110043)

  A fantastic panorama view of the two sea inlets at Ghajn Tuffieha Bay (tat-tarag) and Gnejna and the clay hills that separate them. Ghajn Tuffieha is generally translated to “The Apple’s Eye“, however (and I stand to go against general perception here) as a small kid I remember getting my hands on a very old book of fables which contained a short story of fairies living on the small island of Malta in a place where a magical apple tree grew right in the middle of a spring of water. In Maltese the “The Apple’s Spring” is also translated to...

Popeye Village – (Ref: pfm140183)

  The setting sun peeking through the clouds behind the sleepy wooden huts of Popeye Village in Mellieha. Popeye Village, also known as Sweethaven Village, is a group of rustic and ramshackle wooden buildings located at Anchor Bay in the north-west corner of the Mediterranean island of Malta, two miles from the village of Mellieħa. It was built as a film set for the production of the 1980 live-action musical feature film Popeye, produced by Paramount Pictures and Walt Disney Productions and starring Robin Williams. Today it is open to the public as an open-air museum and family...

Filfla (Ref: pfm140181)

  A view of Filfla from Ghar Lapsi. Filfla is a tiny, barren, uninhabited island. Better to say islet. It is a most southerly part of the Maltese islands, approximately 5 kilometers down from Dingli. Next to Filfla there is even a smaller islet, Filfoletta. It is quite interesting, but its name comes from the word “filfel”, which means “peppercorn” in Arabic. Thousands of year ago it was attached to the main island, then the Magħlaq geomorphological fault formed the islet and the nearby rocks. The only structure on the island was a small chapel built in a cave by local...

Senglea – Il-Gardjola Gardens (Ref: pfm130179)

Il-Gardjola Gardens in Senglea with a view of Valletta in the background. The gardens were planned by Grandmaster De La Sengle in 1551 with a lovely guard tower built on the tip of the bastions. The guard tower, ‘Il-gardjola’, has various symbols sculpted on in such as an eye, an ear and the crane bird, representing guardianship and observance protecting the Maltese shores. The eye on the tower is a popular icon representing Malta, featured in many brochures about the Island. The gardens have palm trees and provide a spot to relax under the shade while enjoying the view. The Gardjola was...

Gozo – Mgarr Ix-Xini (Ref: pfm130178)

Panorama of Mgarr Ix-Xini bay in Gozo.   Mgarr ix-Xini is reputed to be one of the harbours used by the Knights’ galleys, and lies in a gorge accessible from Xewkija and Sannat. The entrance to this natural cove is guarded by a tower which was constructed by the government in 1661. A tempting walk from the bay to the tower through a restored ancient footpath is beyond doubt a unique experience. The bay is in itself the natural seaward estuary of a deep but beautiful natural valley. It has a small pebbly beach with intriguing caves on cliff faces. This secluded spot is ideal for...
