Lying directly opposite the island of Comino and reached through the village of Qala is Ħondoq ir-Rummien, meaning Pomegranate Moat in English. The partly sandy and partly pebbly beach is a favourite especially amongst locals. The sea is crystal clear and the small caves at water level make this cove a popular diving and snorkelling spot as well. The beach is set in a beautiful coastal area of unspoiled pieces of countryside filled with rare wild plant and traditional saltpans, which are still being used, attracting visitors to a lovely countryside walk. Moreover, the beach provides a number of facilities such as a kiosk renting umbrellas and sunbeds, while also selling food and drinks, water sports and even toilets. During summer evenings it is a popular spot for a barbeque while enjoying the night-time breeze.
