Fomm Ir-Rihh Bay

Fomm Ir-Rih , Mgarr, Malta


Fomm Ir-Rih literally means ‘mouth of the wind’ is one of the most isolated and untouched pebbly bays in Malta. Located right near small village of Bahrija and it’s one of the most beautiful places in Malta.

Unfortunately it’s not easy to reach and there’s no public transport to this bay. Although you can go there by boat this makes things much easier and it’s worth it! You can also take a walk but if you do make sure you wear good walking boots since it’s a rough and tricky footpath that cut into rock.

Fomm Ir-Rih offers great views of cliffs and valleys and crystal clear Mediterranean Sea which is perfect place to swim when the sea is calm. Not recommended when the wind blows north or western as it is dangerous with the rolling waves.

It’s a great spot for diving, snorkeling and fishing. Fomm Ir-Rih has the most crystal clear waters.Many people say it's the clearest around the entire islands. It’s also very quiet here which a great plus is for those who want to get away from all the noise. So just relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of this natural beauty!
