Note as the very top section looks like made of a different material. As well explained on the Info Board available on site, the conical shape is the result of sub-aerial erosional process which have acted on the island for the past five millions years.
Xwejni Bay is a nice place to spend a day. Clear waters and a pebble beach, very Gozitan style. It’s suitable for many types of water sports including swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing.
There are three restaurants close by: Horizon Restaurant, Qbajjar Restaurant and the brand new I Toscani. Chez Amand is now closed, at least in the old premises. Maybe Amand went back home to Belgium?
You can also visit the Il-Qolla l-Bajda Battery (in Maltese Batterija tal-Qolla l-Bajda).
From the top of the hillock one can enjoy a beautiful view of the surrounding area. For example an unusual view of the salt pans.
A closer view of Il-Qolla l-Bajda. Stratification of different materials is even more evident here.
