Sinkhole

This is a naturally formed hole, due to the erosion of the limestone. the place has been cleaned out and is now a haven for birds.

Best evening outing

Since it was refurbished this area became a really jewel in the south of Malta. This nature made hole is really amazing to walk down and discover. The adjascent chapel is mainly closed. There are tables and benches if you would like to spend some relaxing time.

A scenic unusual spot
Mar 2018 • Couples
A very large & deep doline (sinkhole) collapsed in 1393, adjacent is a quaint chapel which was enlarged. The sinkhole is full of shrubbery and wildlife. Access a bit difficult & uneven from the road. The viewing places are safe, and the parvis has outdoor benches under very old carob trees.

What A Surprise
Nov 2017
Accidentally stumbled across this place by talking to a local whilst walking from Dingli to Qrendi. Definitely a must visit if in the local area visiting the temples for example. Would probably avoid at night as little artificial light.

Hole
Oct 2017 • Business
Legend says that there was a town and during a natural disaster it exploded was put where now lies filfla, the small island you can see from Qrendi. I was there while I was filming a documentary, it was a good way to finish the first season. What bothered me most was that you can't make it down to the floor for safety reasons, remember SAFETY FIRST 🤕🤒😷

A unique place
Sep 2017 • Couples
Visited this site while on holiday with my wife in Malta. Little awkward to find from the bus terminus in Qrendi but Google Maps is a marvellous thing.
There is a story board at the side of the church offering an explanation of the cause of the sinkhole - probably fiction - but who can be really sure?
You can get a bit of a view from the top but definitely worth negotiating the various steps down to get a closer visual. Some of the steps are quite steep and others are a bit rough so worth making sure you have sensible shoes on if you are planning a visit.
There is a well-worn pathway down on the right hand side, tight to the rocks, which looks as if it may have been the original way down to the bottom - it is not quite blocked but definitely too dangerous for regular tourists.
You can follow the railings as far as they go and get a good impression of how far the land sunk. You cannot see the bottom from here but you can see the difference in the vegetation as opposed to the higher ground in Malta.
Well worth a visit if you are interested in this type of phenomenon.
Just as an aside - we also met a very lovely, friendly local man who chatted to us for about half an hour about Malta and how it has changed in his lifetime. Very interesting afternoon.

Il-maqluba is an interesting spot not far away from Malta's neolithic temples. It is worth visiting if on your way,

Not the usual place

It is important to know the history behind it and the story before visiting. Worth going! While there give a look at the chapel that is beside it.

An old sinkhole worth visiting
Apr 2017
This is a natural sinkhole located in the village of Qrendi. In 1343 a violent storm hit the island and this sinkhole was formed. There are various myths and legends surrounding its formation Because of its formation it hosts a unique eco-system. This together with the lovely village of Qrendi is definitely worth visiting.

Impressive!
Oct 2016 • Couples
If you are intrigued by nature, tall tales and a little bit of mystery-you have to find this.
It's tucked behind the church, and isn't signposted, so keep your eyes open. Once there, they're was an overwhelming sense of spookiness-like something very strange happened here. It's a really impressive sight!
