The Delimara lighthouse has recently been restored and is held in trust by Din l-Art Helwa, National Trust of Malta. All proceeds from its use are dedicated entirely to the restoration and environmental funds of the not for profit organisation.
A British Lighthouse built on the southernmost tip of Malta in 1856, this historic property enjoys marvellous views of Marsascala Port and is close to the fishing villages of Birzebbugia and Marsaxlokk. It is also a few minutes’ walk from rocky beaches and the crystal clear waters of Peter’s Pool.
It is a great place for a holiday if you need to relax, leave everything behind, and yet stay close enough to the vibrant restaurants and atmosphere of Marsaxlokk.
The lighthouse consists of two lighthouse-keeper’s apartments converted into a holiday accommodation. The simplicity of the keeper’s apartments has been retained, with special touches, such as the hanging of mosquito nets over each bed, the original stone elements in the kitchen, as well as the colourful lime wash colour scheme that was originally used.
The lighthouse is split into two separate apartments with different layouts, and which can be rented individually or together. Each apartment sleeps five persons. The first apartment is smaller; on the first floor there is a dining room area, sofa bed for two guests, a kitchen and a toilet. On the first floor, there is one bedroom with three singe beds and a bathroom. The second apartment is larger and consists of a ground floor with a sitting room, a sofa bed for two guests, a large kitchen and dining room area, a single bedroom and a shower and toilet. The first floor has one twin bedroom, a bathroom and a dressing room.
The views from each room, including the toilets and bathrooms are spectacular. Guests can relax and bond with nature by looking out to sea from their bedrooms. The lighthouse is very close to Peter’s Pool, and other swimming places, and there are the lovely walking trails Xrobb L-Ghagin Nature Park nearby as well.
