The first impression one gets of the Mgarr Harbour today is one of bustling activity. The increase in the number of vessels using its facilities may be partly the reason for this increasing activity.

The harbour area remains one of great scenic beauty as you approach from the sea, you will be¬†impressed by the beautiful verdant cliffs and valleys overlooking the harbour. Fort Chambray is conspicuous on the wooded hill overlooking the two quays. Between this hill and the cliffs on which Ghajnsielem stands, nestling on top an olive-lined hill, one’s attention is captivated by the beautiful church of our Lady of Lourdes. This church built in a Gothic style is at the center of attraction.

There are plenty of superb restaurants dotted around the harbour, and with a lovely promenade for an after dinner stroll in the warm summer evenings.
