Siggiewi – Ghar Lapsi (Ref: pfm140176)

Rough seas battering the rocky caves in Ghar Lapsi in Siggiewi. This is more of a hidden cove rather than the normal definition given to a beach. It is situated around one kilometre from the popular Blue Grotto and is nestled underneath a less dramatic drop of Dingli Cliffs. Ghar Lapsi is a natural rocky swimming pool with a cave to compliment the beautiful surroundings. It is particularly popular with snorkelers due to being a naturally protected spot and with divers as an underwater shallow cavern leads out to the open Mediterranean Sea. Apart from a few small areas of flat rock, there is...

Filfla (Ref: pfm110174)

Gozo – Wied Il-Ghasri (Ref: pfm120173)

  A panoramic shot of the unique Ghasri Valley in Gozo – another of those elusive beautiful spots which are rather difficult to find.   Wied il-Ghasri (reached through Ghasri and Marsalforn) is a fjord-looking tiny beach wedged between high cliffs and can be reached ideally by boat.
