If you are in Marsaxlokk then just walk. It took 40 mins (amble) from the tourist information office. Follow the walking route along the road and before reaching the power station (why did they build it here) turn left up a road / track. It's a little steep in places with barley fields & wild fennel along the route. When... More

It's just a 20-30 minutes of walk to get to St. Peter's Pool from Marsaxlook. It's one of the natural attractions of Malta which cannot be missed. There are some stairs carved in the limestone so you can even have a bath or just enjoy the view on the sea and the wonders of the nature. Don't forget to take... More

You will need your own transport to get here and also a good map/sat nav as it is NOT well sign posted. The beach is also not the greatest on the island. The reward however is a little bit of tranquility and a stunning backdrop of cliffs

I visited in early March when perhaps it is less crowded. After driving here, I managed to find a parking spot a short walk away, there are great views over the cliffs and it is a nice walk down to St Peters Pool. It was a lovely sunny day if a bit windy but I loved it. There were not... More

St Peter's Pool is a hard-to-reach naturally formed swimming pool in the south of Malta, about 30 minutes walk from Marsaxlokk. It's good for swimming although people usually dive from the rocks. If you go by car, keep in mind that the roads are in bad condition. No sand to lie for tanning but rocks. No facilities (except metal ladders... More

We went to Marshashlokk at lunch time and walked along the promenade. At the end we saw a tourist information office and asked what could we do for the next 2 hours. We were recommended this very good walk to St. Peter's pool. Well, if you are up to a blend of the industrial looks of a power station with... More

This is the most beautiful place we've seen on Malta and one of the most beautiful we've seen anywhere. It's not large, and it's a bit of a walk (about half an hour) from Marsaxlokk, but it is quite peaceful; photos can't do it justice. It's all natural - no cafes, toilets or anything else of civilization (other than multiple... More

This was my favourite swimming spot when I lived in Malta in 1970's. Fortunately, I visited St Peters Pool in mid February when the sea was rough but there were very few visitors. Apparently it is overcrowded in the summer months. Prime Minister Dom Mintoff lived nearby and swam here daily in the past. It used to be a very... More

Everyone who is going to visit Malta should come here. Nature, bay and sea are beautiful. Since I visited this place in February I could not swim, but still this was a perfect place for me to chill out and enjoy the sun. To get there by foot from Marsaxlokk you need about 30min.

Well, I wasn't expecting so much. I was travelling with two of my young children and found that the gps is showing the wrong direction so I follow the signs. The road was unbelievably bad and I thought it was a mistake to bring the car here. Also no way back. But please do go forward as you are about... More
