Hal Safi is a village of 1,979 people in the southeast part of Malta, near Zurrieq. Safi is also about 5 minutes away from the Malta International Airport.
Safi is a small village close to all amenities. Even though it is quite close to the Airport residents in Safi deem Safi to be a quite, beautiful village. There are few social clubs which happen to be frequented by the locals in the early evening hours. The climax of the social life is the celebration of the village festa, celebrated through the last week of August. The patron Saint of Al Safi is St. Paul.
Recently a famous dining complex in the village has opened. 'Il-Pagna' specializing in traditional Maltese Cuisine, has become an icon in the square of Al Safi, attracting mainly non-residents and tourists.
Safi is also close to Wied iz-Zurrieq. Wied iz-Zurrieq is a picturesque valley on the south coast of Malta. The steep slope of the valley continues underwater. Entry is from a small quay. The bottom is strewn with rocks which must have been carried there over the centuries. At the right of the mouth valley is a small cave. The bottom falls to 30 metres plus. The location comes to its full glory at night as crabs, hidden during the day, venture forth. Looking like a miniature fiord, this narrow arm of the sea is an anchorage for boats in calm weather; at the first sign of a storm the boats are winched up a steep slipway and landed. The boats at Wied iz-Zurrieq were, and still are, used for fishing; now, however, the fishermen are finding out that it is more lucrative to take visitors to the nearby Blue Grotto.
Hagar Qim is a megalithic temple complex found very close to the village of Safi, dating from the ?gantija phase (3600-3200 BC). The Megalithic Temples of Malta are amongst the most ancient religious sites on Earth, described by the World Heritage Sites committee as 'unique architectural masterpieces.' In 1992 UNESCO recognized ?a?ar Qim and four other Maltese megalithic structures as World Heritage Sites. Vere Gordon Childe, Professor of Prehistoric European Archeology and director of the Institute of Archaeology in the University of London from 1946-1957 visited ?a?ar Qim. His observation was:
I have been visiting the prehistoric ruins all round the Mediterranean, from Mesopotamia to Egypt, Greece and Switzerland, but I have nowhere seen a place as old as this one.
