  • Charming quiet place, not crowded like other touristic attractions. Good place to relax and enjoy the view of the three citied across the bay. 
  • Very nice Park, offers a beautiful view of the sea. Beautiful especially in the evening, where you can enjoy a romantic atmosphere

  • A nice place to overlook the bay. Not too crowded and busy which allows for some nice pictures. This is close to the main shopping area and a great place to take a break.

  • Great garden with great views. Has some interesting monuments, and lovely benches to wind down on. A recommended bar/bistro just at the entrance for refreshments.
  • I really like this place and i prefer it over the Upper Barrakka Garden, which is full of tourist. Since this garden is smaller and a bit far from the main touristic attractions, there aren't lot of tourists/visitors here. It's very quite, beautiful and with a nice view to Vittoriosa. Definitely worth to visit this garden.
  • Very nice and relaxed garden enjoyed time there. And they have toilets there
  • Enchanting, with breathtaking views of the sea and the harbor!! Don't miss the hanging vine flowers in the middle of the garden! They look almost carnivorous :)
  • A green spot in the capital of Malta where you can sit, contemplate and relax watching the beautiful seaviews.
