Xrobb l-Għaġin Tower, originally known as Torre di Siuarep, is a ruined watchtower in Xrobb l-Għaġin, limits of Marsaxlokk, Malta. It was built in 1659 as the eighth of the De Redin towers. An entrenchment with two redans was built around it in 1761. The tower is now largely destroyed since it was built of globigerina limestone which is prone to erosion. The remains of the tower's scarped base, as well as the general outline of the entrenchment, can still be seen.

    We found this place on the way to St. Peter´s Pool and impressed us with the whiteness of the cliffs and the blue waters. It is a very beautiful jagged coastline. Although close of Marsaxlok there were very few people and was in a very quiet environment.

    Going to Marsaxlokk on Sunday to enjoy the fair. Be sure to go on this tour. Have a good view of the coast and lasts just over 1 hour.
