About
This natural pool at the tip of Delimara Point is a unique swimming spot, perfect for a day of adventure and relaxation. There’s a large flat slab where you can sunbathe, or you can jump off the cliffs to swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters below. Just watch out for jellyfish. If you want to explore beyond the pool, wear good shoes and stroll along the rocky shore to find other stunning inlets like Peter’s Little Brother. You can also see historic landmarks in the area like Fort Delimara and the Il-Kalanka Lighthouse. Otherwise, visit St. Peter's Pool and other Malta highlights, including the Blue Grotto, on a full-day tour. – Tripadvisor

    Nice Photo Op. I would not choose to swim here.
    Walked here from the bay. Beautiful walk and views. The pool is a neat piece of shoreline. It was not that friendly of a walk down from the parking lot a little slippery on the dusty paths and I would not recommend for small children to swim there. A Malta experience for sure though. Cigarette smoking is definitely something you have to embrace the smell in Malta for sure ! It is everywhere.

    Sorry for jellyfishes
    Amazing place and amazing water. Way too can be a bit tricky. Parking by payment, 3 euros par day. Not five stars only because not fully enjoyed; that day, sadly, too many jellyfishes!

    Trip of a lifetime
    An experience of a lifetime... jump from the cliff 4-5 meters or a smaller 2-3 meters heights or just climb down the steps. You can get your snorkels for pretty fishes if you want. Please remember to get your snacks & drink/ WATER. There is a small ice cream van serving ice cream and light snacks (limited though). Has a car park for 25-30 cars, gets filled by. 11 am. Best to arrive before noon to enjoy the dive in the sun. Excellent bus service till the Marsaxlokk town. Reaching there requires a 2 km walk (with a steep walk for about 500metres, rest is easy 1.5kms) or take a cab €8 or a ferry €10.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Malta. We were lucky to arrive at a time when it was not busy and no jellyfish in the water. What a great experience to jump off the cliffs and swim in the beautiful clear water. It was cold as expected in January but we got some sunshine. We also got to meet Tina - a Jack Russell diver and social media super star.

Such a beautiful place, even in December you could swim, I didn't dare to try it, because it's a bit impressive but several people did it without problem.
What a shame, however, that wherever humans go, they pollute such a beautiful natural environment with their waste, and mainly their cigarette butts. Shame on them. (see photos). It will then go to the sea to spread its toxins to marine wildlife.

I was there on the last day of my travel. This pool is really nice, you can experience jumping from the cliff. I loved it, and enjoyed very much

Beautiful bay, tricky to get to as the roads as very narrow, ignore signs for the first car park as they charge for that, take the second turning to the free car park. Very crowded with young people jumping from the cliffs.
People are taking risks that they shouldn’t, not looking when other people are jumping, a guy broke his arm landing badly in the water when we were there, the ambulance came and took him to the hospital, according to the ice cream man the ambulance is a regular visitor.
No shade, people the colour of lobsters, my two stars are because Tina the dog was there.

Not my favourite beach, it was really crowded and loud. I dont really recommend it. But not so far from here is a great beach with better enterance to the sea and not many people. You just have to pass the bar or you can get there through the sea.

We paid 3 euro for parking after hellish road where is impossible for 2 cars go next to each other and one or other car needs to reverse. After that you will come down to dirty, full of garbagge and crowded rocks above St. Peter's pool where you will find people shouting and jumping from rock to water. You can go to water further down where rocks are low but need to watch out for slimy seaweed. I fell instantly and I was careful but it is impossible to go walking normally into the water. We were there like 15 minutes and went to St. Thomas Bay where was small sandy beach where was almost no one. Avoid St. Peter's pool, not worth it. Btw if you expect some supervision or lifeguard at St. Peter's pool, no one is there! If someting happens to you there, it will be long time until someone qualified helps you so probably will be too late

Nice beach to have fun, you can jump on multiple rocks safely, 2m to 5m height so it's a nice place to have fun with friends. It is crowded during the afternoon so come early 😊

This place is not what the photos look like. One, the rocks are slippery, VERY SLIPPERY. I saw a girl fall and she looked like she was in pain. Second, ITS JELLYFISH CENTRAL. I knew it was not the best idea to jump off the highest point given my height. I tried to go in the shallow end, but a man stopped me. He pointed at two jellyfish swimming around. Those weren’t the only ones. They were everywhere. I heard a group of teens say, “There’s Jellyfish in the water. Crap it stung me!” Third, it’s RIDDLED with garbage and junk. There’s no lifeguards, no one to check marine life, no one to clean up. Just a bunch of people screaming, getting stung, dunking their trash…does not live up to the hype. So many better places in Malta with the same deep waters that are less crowded, less slippery, jellyfish free and trash free. Don’t come here. Never ended up going in the water.
