Ghar Lapsi beach is a unique and hidden little bay with a view over Filfla, situated around 1 km away from the popular Blue Grotto. Ghar Lapsi and its rocky shoreline form a natural swimming pool with crystal clear and fantastic azure blue/green waters perfect for snorkelling.
Ghar Lapsi Cave leads out into the deep open sea and is an excellent dive with fantastic visibility that allows for great underwater photography. Since Ghar Lapsi is very beautiful and a naturally protected area, it is very popular with locals who come here for a short swim and dive into the deep waters from the surrounding rocks.
There is no extended space for sun bathing, apart from a few small areas of flat rock, so this cove is not very popular with tourists. Ghar Lapsi’s surrounding terrain and coastline are ideal for walking during the winter months and offer excellent spots for rock climbing. Ghar Lapsi Bay and Cave are reached by a winding road from just outside Siggiewi.
Għar Lapsi (meaning Ascension Cave) is a small rocky bay, located close to Dingli, 1 km north-west of the Blue Grotto. Here it’s possible to swim within a sheltered rocky inlet (basically a natural swimming pool), which, on calm water days, is actually also a great place to snorkel or for diving practitioners. There’s no real beach there, but it’s possible to sunbathe on the concrete terraces surrounding the inlet. There are a bar (also serving sandwiches and hot dishes) and a bigger restaurant nearby.
