Well preserved tower
Nov 2020
Sometimes it it possible to visit this tower (3 times a week). Anyway, even if closed, you can climb the steps to the top and enjoy the stunning view.

Charming Tower
Jan 2020 • Solo
After it was announced it was about 30 minutes walk from the blue Lagoon, I opted not to walk to it. However from in the view, it seems a mystical church. If you are at the Blue Lagoon and feel like trekking to it then it is sure worth the visit. There is also a little statue of the virgin Mary and child in the rocks close by.
Do enjoy

Saint Mary 's tower Scenic view of the Lagoon
Jun 2019 • Family
We got there after a 35 min walk from the Blue Lagoon . It was closed .
However , the view is amazing and therefore quite interesting historically .
The Tower was built as one of many lookout towers built around Island to give the Maltese advanced warning of a pirate raid or invasion .
For that reason the view is amazing . The island of Gozo across the straight , the Ferries leaving the town of Cirkewwa for Gozo and of course an amazing view the Blue Lagoon .
Full disclosure ? I love forts .

A scenic view

This was relatively close to the blue lagoon, being only about 20 minutes away, it had steps going up to the bottom of the tower, and the view was unique from that vantage point.

Lovely tower - do visit!
Jul 2019
Worth the walk from The Blue Lagoon - took about 40 mins with our children. The walk is very scenic. The tower was open. Lovely views from the top. Stayed here about 30 mins as there is stuff to read inside the tower and you can go downstairs too

Interesting and fab views
Jul 2019 • Family
A lovely walk from the Blue Lagoon which we did with our two daughters age 8 and 11. It took about 40 mins to walk (as we had several stops along the way for photos) and it was over barren land but not dangerous or unsafe at all. The walk was pleasant with lovely views and we also saw many lizards en route. The tower was open (until 3pm) and we enjoyed our visit which was very informative with lots to read and the views from the top of the tower were great. Definitely worth the walk and a break from the crowds at the Blue Lagoon. Only 2euros per adult and children free!!

Incredible view, interesting history
Jul 2019 • Couples
For €2 you can take a look around this small fort and take a break in the shade. It is filled with lots of information about its history, has amazing views from the top, and has toilets too!

Shocking
Apr 2019 • Couples
How to ruin an island and a natural beauty spot! We could not believe it when our boat stopped here. This isn’t even height of season and the island was crammed with tourists. The powers that be need to protect this area from total destruction. It is so commercialised it is a joke. The minute you get off your boat you are harassed to rent a deck chair, an umbrella, a jet ski, a banana boat ride or parasailing. Then up the steep slope you are harassed to buy an empty pineapple shell filled with an alcoholic cocktail, burgers, junk food galore more tickets more tours. I did however have a nice fruit salad. People were leaving their cigarette ends and empty pineapple shells strewn across the rocks. After a walk along some treacherous rocks and a trek across the island in search of a quiet bay, we decided we had had enough of this baron landscape which looked like it had been bombed then deserted. Where are the sandy beaches? We headed back to get our boat where lots of other tourists seemed to have the same idea. Boats came and went and people desperately tried to board any vessel to get off this awful place. This is not a safe stop for the elderly. My husband had to assist a couple in their 90s along a cliff edge over a broken bridge to their boat. This island is a serious accident waiting to happen but they will continue to sell tickets promoting this blue lagoon to anyone, irrelevant of their age or ability or attire. Unsafe, unpleasant avoid at all cost. If you want to see natural crystal clear water and beautiful beaches then visit Scotland on a sunny day it beats this with no shadow of a doubt.

Good vantage point, even when closed
Apr 2019
The obvious destination for visitors to the island - leading to a procession along the rocky paths from the landing stage. Best to head the other way round the island, and end up here from an anti-clockwise direction.

Offers a splendid vantage point from which to see Malta and Gozo, as well as the surrounding countryside. It was closed when we visited, so no idea what it's like inside!
