Big rooms, ensuite, old but clean and serviceable. Fan in room. Basic but on the beach.

... in trusting Stuart this time. We moved at a lovely pace for an hour and a half around the Grand Harbour. Breathtaking views and again packed with history. We were looking at fortified buildings built from 1500 to 1700. Amazingly, amongst all this history, this is still a working harbour and is one of the deepest natural harbours in the world. Back for a late lunch and swim in the Mediterranean Sea before Joe picked us up at 6pm for more sight seeing ...
