Few things are more majestic than the untamed power of stormy seas.
Few things are more frightening than the unleashed fury of powerful waves.
In summer this bay is a favourite bathing spot, its sandy shore lined with gaudy umbrellas and hundreds of sweltering bodies. Its waters are blue, welcoming and serene.
In winter it is almost a hostile place, the water turns a dark grey, the waves crash on the shore and the wind roars.
A totally different scene. It is deserted, desolate almost, unwelcoming and cold. But this is how I love it best. Revealing its wild beauty to me alone.

This bay, situated on the North-west coast of Malta is especially susceptible to the mighty NW wind, known in Maltese as Majjistral (the j’s sound like y’s). This pretty bay is known for its underground currents and caution is advised when swimming here even during the summer months.
