Geocache Description:

Fort Delimara is a fortification in Marsaxlokk, Malta. The fort was built between 1876 and 1888 by the British.

Fort Delimara was a one of a ring of forts and batteries that protected Marsaxlokk harbour, along with Fort Tas-Silg at the shoreward end of Delimara point, Fort St Lucian on Kbira point in the middle of Marsaxlokk bay, Fort Benghisa on Benghisa Point, and the Pinto and Ferreti batteries on the shores of Marsaxlokk Bay.
Fort Delimara is mostly underground, with the fort's main armament mounted in casemates set in the cliffs on the shoreward face of Delimara Point. At the surface it is a polygonal fort, rectangular in outline, with rock cut ditches on three sides, and the gently curving vertical cliff forming the convex fourth side. Ventilation apertures and access passageways are spread out across the face of the cliff, and even out onto the seaward face of Point Delimara.

Some light climbing is necessary.

we are very sorry about all the trash found in this place.
After you find the cache you can enjoy the view of the Marsaxlokk and Birzebbugia harbour from a different angle. Be careful if you have children
