AN AFTERNOON IN MGARR IX-XINI
Mgarr Ix-Xini : how can I describe this beautiful creek, this tiny mediterranean inlet ? Strangely enough, when you live by the sea, you don’t go to the beach that much. Yet, this is something that I really enjoy : the turquoise water, the iodine, the fish that swim around you, the colorful umbrellas and the acidulous popsicles…
Last sunday, Gleb, Denis, Katia and I decided to leave our pool and to face the 35°C weather to spend an afternoon by the water, and we chose to go to Mgarr Ix-Xini.
You have probably already seen pictures of this beautiful place if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram : this is indeed the beach where I regularly swim, after my morning run. The place is pretty in the middle of the afternoon, but it is even more beautiful in the morning, when it’s completely deserted.
Besides, you’re not done with this little piece of heaven on earth… This is indeed the location where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie filmed madam’s movie, “By the Sea”, last summer. Personnally, I’m looking forward to seeing what it will look like on the big screen – this is the first time that I will be familiar with a “movie set” ! – and I hope the original landscape won’t be too much edited…
Until this autumn – the movie’s release – I bring you with me for an afternoon in Mgarr Ix-Xini !
A 27°C crystal clear water… count me in !
The pretty Katia is enjoying the view !
Why Denis loves Mgarr Ix-Xini : because he can jump from the cliffs.
After Brad and Angelina…
