The Wite Tower Bay has taken its name from a small tower at the edge of the rocks. It is enclosed by a fortification wall that was built by the Knights of St. John. The tower and the redoubts punctuating the coast used to be the only structures on Marfa Ridge. Today the bays on this side of the ridge are dotted with Maltese holiday homes and shacks.
Work your way along the coast, savouring the seaviews and stopping for a dip at one of the sandy bays. Beyond White Tower, Ramla Tat-Torri (Slug Bay) is far more inviting than it sounds.
