Nearby beach is St. Thomas Bay, 1 km (0.5) miles to the south, has sandy banks and shallow water.  In summer it can seem too busy, but it is easy to escape the crowds by heading south along the coast towards Delimara Point.  The road to St.Thomas from Marsaskala passes Mamo Tower, a 17th-century tower with an teresting cruciform design and just one room with a vaulted roof.
