Bahar ic-Caghaq

Bahar ic-Caghaq is a small village located on the North coast of Malta, in the limits of Madliena, Maghtab and Gharghur. The village stands on the mouth of Wied il-Kbir, the longest valley in the Maltese Islands. ‘Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq’ translates to ‘sea of pebbles’ in English, and it is named after a long stretch of rocky coast that features plenty of sharp rocks and pebbles.The area was used as a camping site by the British forces, and today it is almost a purely residential town with a population of around 1,250 people. The area is mostly known for the ‘White Rocks’, attracting numerous locals and tourists for swimming and sunbathing. There are a number of bars and restaurants, as well as a fun park and a marine centre that hosts a dolphin show. Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq falls under the administration of Naxxar Local Council, but under the parish district of neighbouring Gharghur.
