This tower, also known as the Red Tower, was built in 1649 and was manned during both World Wars. It provides excellent all round views of Gozo, Comino and the Ghadira Nature Reserve. This Tower is situated on the crest of Marfa Ridge. A shallow alcove within the Tower housed a chapel dedicated to St Agatha. It is also known as the Red Tower due to the colour it was painted and this colour was retained on restoration. It was completed in 1649 during the rule of Grand Master Jean Paul Lascaris Castellar. Paradise Bay on the northern tip of Malta overlooks Cirkewwa where the ferry leaves for Gozo. Paradise Bay has a small, picturesque sandy beach with good facilities and some water sports options such as jet skiing. There is a car park on the cliff top. The beach is reached down numerous steep steps, but is worth the trek. The cliffs above the bay are perfect at sunset when you have spectacular skies and some hazy views over to Comino and Gozo. The countryside of this northern and isolated region of Malta is ideal for hiking.
Ahrax point is the north-eastern point of Malta. There are a number of caves at the surface, inside of which there are several tunnels.  The entry is a narrow inlet with depths from three to 10 metres.  A 10 minute snorkel gets to the point where two options present themselves - to the left a reef rich in marine life and an impressive drop-off and to the right, an underwater entrance to a large cave.  Throughout the dive there are plenty of cardinalfish, bright corals and red sponges. Ghadira, located in Mellieha Bay is the biggest stretch of sand on the Maltese islands. Although Malta and Gozo do not have the big beaches other countries have, its beaches are very picturesque and the water is as beautiful and as clear as any found in the Carribean.
