St Peter’s Pool is a natural swimming pool located in the south-eastern area of Malta near Marsaxlokk Bay on the eastern side of the Delimara Peninsula. One of the legends says that the pool used to be the place where St Peter baptized Christians when he visited Malta practicing the faith of the Roman Catholic Church.Before you visit Marsaxlokk, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
Although not very easy to find, this stunning rocky inlet is a great place for swimming, sunbathing and snorkelling. The sea here is crystal clear with a mix of azure and fresh green colours. However you need to be quite a strong swimmer to feel comfortable with the waters around. Flat rocks provide an ideal sun bathing area with some shaded terraced sections protecting from the scorching sun.
St Peter's Pool is a real treat for those looking to go that extra mile to find this beautiful and relaxing spot. It can be reached from Marsaxlokk village by a few minutes’ drive or by walking (45min to 1h). It is recommended to find out about the route before taking the trip. There are also two impressive bays nearby: Hofra z-Zghira and Hofra l-Kbira. The Xrobb l-Ghagin Nature Park and St Thomas Bay are a bit further away.
If you are planning to spend a whole day at St Peter’s Pool and its surroundings areas make sure you bring everything you need for that day as there are no facilities provided whatsoever. Then just enjoy the pellucid water, amazing rock formations and a spectacular view from the top of the cliffs.

Il ne faut pas s'attendre à un endroit exceptionnel comme le reste de l'île, il y a de la marche à faire avant de rejoindre l'endroit et pas beaucoup de place à l'ombre. Sinon, on peut sauter à enviro... more »He shouldn't expect an exceptional place like the rest of the island, there is the market to do before joining the place and not a lot of space in the shade. Otherwise, you can jump to about 3 metres high, and take great photos
A strandot erdemes megnezni, de fogadni kell taxit mert mi 40 fokban setaltunk oda es hat eleg messze van.

Bello ci siamo stati e ti diverti veramente tanto... Salti dagli scogli e ti tuffi da varie altezze. Posto molto suggestivo e romantico... Un po' pericolante la strada per salire ma piano piano c'è la... more »Nice we stayed and you enjoy it very much ... Jump from the rocks and you dive from various heights. Very impressive and romantic. A bit unsafe the way to climb but slowly there is make it quietly ... Obviously highly recommended. .. You can't spend and don't stop ...
A horseshoe shaped rock formation with a deep pool in the middle. You can dive off the rocks at various places, tallest point is probably 2/3 stories if you've got the courage :) Overhanging rock round the edge will give you some shade if you arrive morning or evening, there's a little bit of shade at midday but my advice would be go in the morning as it's quietest and still cool! Also be warned there is no sand! Don't let that discourage you though!
Worth to see. When there is out of season high winds make it impossible to swim. But the view is outstanding :)
a beautifull place if you think about the view but it's kinda hard to get there, small roads.
Beautiful place but way too dirty : full of garbage and cigarettes' butts. Plastic all over the place including the sea.
Lovely place, beautiful views! :)
