Go a bit early and get a spot in the shades of the rocks cuz it can get busy. The nice cool water and the amazing jump site is very exciting. Bring water and food cuz it’s scarce of far to grab anything.

Wish we’d known you can get a boat trip here from the harbour for €4! We walked and it was a hard climb up rough tracks. Much easier on the way back as a gentler incline. Beautiful views. Lovely to sit and gaze at the...More

St. Peter’s Pool is one of the most beautiful natural swimming pools in Malta, nearby Marsaxlokk. The water is crystal clear and deep blue. This place is very popular with the locals and young people, good for snorkeling,swimming, sunbathe.

There are different heights to jump from - one man even had his dog jumping in - quite a spectacle. Fantastic place - go for it!

Once at the market there are about two different companies right there. They give you options on where they can take you. Round trip from to St. Peter's Pool was about $20 us I think

I am afraid, i don't. please note that it's not a ferry its small traditional local fishing boats. there where 4-5 different "companies" in the harbour. Lucy Brown is at the far end of the harbour/bay towards the sea.
