Geocache Description:

Micro Traditional cache in muggle free countryside with beautiful views.


Just a couple of steps away from the main Dingli Cliffs road, this cache takes you to the unspoiled coast of Fawwara.

Only few tourists get this far. You can reach the location either from Dingli Cliffs road down towards the promontory. You will have to walk over rough terrain.

Or from Fawwara road. In this case you will have to drive to the end of the tarmaced road and walk only a few steps.

The location gives stunning views of the Dingli coast, Filfla Island and is an excellent start for countryside walks

In close vicinity of the cache there is the “Chapel of our lady of Mount Carmel” (Il-Kappella tal-Madonna tal-Karmnu) belonging to the Fraternity of Our Lady of Charity from St. Paul’s in Valletta.

It was first built in 1616 over a famous spring which had been renowned for its water quantity. It underwent rebuilding already in 1669.

For those interested in the detailed history of the chapel this is a link to the website in Maltese. You would need to translate it if your Maltese is as bad as mine ;-) but nowadays on-line translations come up with a readable result.

The cache itself is a bit off the road / track.

It might be a bit tricky to find, amongst all those stone.

It is NOT in a rubble wall and NEITHER in the scree field close by. We are not that evil.

Please leave all walls alone.

Only space for the logbook inside. Please bring your own pen.
