Birzebbuga translated to English means “Olive Well” as the area was very well known for their fine olive trees. The town is located in the South of Malta and has a population of 9736 people in an area of 9.2km². Having a nice big sandy beach called Pretty Bay surrounded by gazebos, restaurants, bars and cafes makes this a great place for tourists and Maltese of all ages.
The surrounding areas of the bay have recently been renovated to make it safer for children to play, accessible for the disabled and benches for who wish to sit there and watch the world go by. From Pretty Bay you can see the Freeport which is the commercial port where container ships are continuously coming and going round the clock to keep up with demand. Maltas location in thecentre of the Mediterranean make it a perfect gateway between Europe and Africa.
In Berzebbuga you can find Ghar Dalam (Dark Cave) which is a very important site because the earliest human presence was found here dating back to the Neolithic Period some 7400 years ago.
