Fomm ir-Riħ (Mouth of the wind) is a small bay in the limits of Mġarr on the western side of the island. The location is characterised by a fault line which creates an interesting landscape with high and steep cliffs and a pebble beach at its foot.
Access to the beach in Fomm Ir-Riħ is quite difficult, with only one road which is currently blocked by surrounding homeowners. If you are brave enough to go by foot, a narrow path in the side of the steep cliff side is your only way down… and then up!
Being so difficult to reach and therefore not as disrupted as other beaches, marine life in Fomm Ir-Riħ such as the Maltese freshwater crab has made a home out of this pebbled beach.
Simply a wonderful place for a walk in the wintry sun… unless you meet a couple of cars blasting out music and disrupting the peace!
