They stand 250 metres tall, and are located on the western side of the island. These cliffs acted as a natural defense for the island in medieval times. </p> <p>Birgu is Malta’s largest coastal city, and the island’s nautical hub. The city’s modern marina, located just next to the beach blends in with the many historic buildings of the area, including the 16th century Saint Angelo Fort, which is located near the entrance of the ship maker Creek’s premises. </p> <p>Gozo is the archipelago’s second largest island, after the island of Malta, and is connected with the other Maltese islands by the port of Mgarr.
