Walk up to the point to see the Mgarr Ix-Xini tower (usually open 10.30am-1.30pm Tue-Sat but you can check when it is open as the flag flies) – part of the Knights’ 17th-century coastal defence system against smugglers, pirates and invaders.
In summer, have lunch at the open air seafood restaurant (a cooking shack and tables) which does excellent fresh fish dinners.
Older kids may enjoy climbing up the sides of the rocks and jumping in. If so, look out for sea urchins or wear shoes.
