The coast has no sand, only rocks, but the soft yellow limestone rock has all kinds of funny holes and shapes. The rocks look interesting because they have been carved out by the roaring Mediterranean Sea as it comes crashing against Malta.
We spent two hours walking along the water, looking at all the fun rock-formations and sniffing everything. There are also some green fields in the area, so Max and I got to sniff some grass as well.
Apparently, the seaside path we took for a short while continues all the way to the next village, Marsascala. This is a beautiful fishing village with a lot of different restaurants and connections in the local bus system.

On the page Plan a Trip – Malta, there is more information about the country and what you can do there. One can also read what to expect when bringing your dog to Malta and I have included a few suggestions for activities that you can do with your dog in Malta.
How to get there: The easiest way is to get there by car, but be aware that the dirt road leading to the small parking lot is quite narrow and not very good. Also, it’s possible that the parking lot fills up in the high season.
If you don’t have a car you can take a public bus to the nearby village of Abdosir (bus route 81, 119 and 210). From there you have to walk the 2.3 km (about half an hour) to the pool.
Note from mama: Bring what you need for the day, including food and water, as you can’t buy anything near the pool. Also, bring good walking shoes as you will probably want to walk far and away to discover the beautiful coastline. And my last note, also bring poo-poo bags for your dog. Even though the pool is in a natural setting, there are usually many people walking around the area who don’t want to step into anything nasty.
