Autumn views from the southern village of Birzebbuga
The first people who inhabited Birzebbuga were the Phoenicians. They chose this part of Malta because the southern part of the island was the first land to be found when coming from the east, and the bay, which is called Marsaxlokk offered substantial sheltered inlets for their ships.
Birzebbugia is a flourishing, but small, seaside resort not far from Marsaxlokk. It has been a popular bathing spot for Maltese holiday-makers for decades. In more recent years, the bay was artificially filled with sand recovered from the sea during dredging works for the nearby Freeport. Pretty Bay is now considered a sandy beach. It lies right in the town centre so there are plenty of shops and restaurants along the coastline. Outside Pretty Bay, towards St George's Bay, you'll find a rocky shore ideal for sun bathing and snorkeling. St George's Bay is a lovely inlet used by local fishermen who moor their boats there. The bay is a good venue for water sports such as windsurfing.

These are lovely pictures. I was last in this area in 2004, on a visit from Australia, I think - but I remember being there as a child. I had an uncle who had a development project there. I remember a great cafe where they made delicious hobz biz-zejt.
my favourite views!!!
