Rinella Bay is one of the few sandy corners in the mainly rocky coastline. It invites for a swim, and is on my morning path. On summer weekends, it is a gathering place for families from Kalkara. Also, beach parties are not unknown. But in the early morning all is quiet again, and the view is clear, over to Valletta.
It is a short walk from Kalkara across Rinella Bay, passing the obsolete radio antenna masts. They once served as a relay of the BBC to Libya. Under one of them is a small restaurant, where some taxi drivers have a few beer before work. Turn right, up the hill. Then before reaching Fort Rinella, turn left. There is a chapel and a cemetery. Behind them is my favorite place to watch the sea.
