stunning coastal scenery
very windy and no boats running :-(
In a nutshell
I like it alot ! as one can go for walks in the countryside and also be by the sea at the same time !
The bus companies are very helpful at leaving timtables in boxes at main pick up points so get hold of one as sometimes the timetables at the bus stops cannot be read!!
Maybe somebody was fed up waiting for a bus here and punched it out. Bus to here is not frequent - an hourly service from Valletta and there is also the new tourist bus route 506 which serves the southern part of the island, calling at San Anton Gardens, the neolithic temples up the road, here, Rabat and Dingli. Tjis service tends to stop for lunch too - so you could be stuck here for a couple of hours if you don't time it right.

The Xarolla Windmill is the most famous windmill that was constructed by the Knights of Malta. Many similar windmills were built all over Malta, but this is the coolest. It was built by Grand Master Antonio Manoel de Vilhena in 1724.
In 1992 the windmill was restored and it is now the only functioning windmill in Malta. The Xarolla Windmill proudly represents local Maltese culture and heritage and it is definitely a beautiful construction to visit, even on a day without wind although on a windy day it's more fun. The windmill still possesses parts of its original mechanism and and is still able to grain wheat. So I was told. I didn't have a chance to verify that fact, but it sure sounds impressive.
