Mġarr is a city in Malta.
- Gnejna Bay, Gnejna Bya, Mgarr (A straightforward 30 minute walk from Mgarr that's well sign posted). The most underrated Blue Flag beach on the island, Gnejna Bay is a quiet sandy beach used predominantly by local residents. Reach it via 30 minute countryside walk from Mgarr that takes in forts and old castellos. Be wary of the return walk uphill if travelling with small children. The water is spectacular and there is ample opportunity to climb and explore. Local fisherman attempt to catch sea bream and will happily give you an overview of Malta's fishing industry. There are toilets and changing facilities on site maintained to a decent standard. Compared to Golden Bay this is not a tourist beach so be sure to bring your own refreshments. edit
- Il-Barri, Triq IL-Kbira, L-Imġarr, Malta (Unmissable next to the Mgarr Parish Church), . A popular restaurant and hangout run by the Sammut family since it opened in the 1940s. The owners have also recently opened the underground shelter where many locals took refuge during WW2. The shelter is extensive, maintained and includes a short film. The restaurant serves some of the best rabbit on the island and has an varied menu of traditional Maltese dishes. Portions are sizeable and expect plate after plate of additional snails and bread at no additional cost. Expect to see locals chatting outside and enjoying the bucolic views. Be sure to join in, the residents of Mgarr are among the friendliest citizens of Malta. Booking on an evening is necessary and be sure to arrive before lunch to see the shelter. ££. edit
- Ta' l-Ingliż.. A famous fenkata (rabbit) restaurant. Small, packed with Maltese, and you need to book. The standard is truly excellent, and a visit will give the chance to try other real Maltese treats such as snails in gravy, horse meat or quail. edit
