Ghallis Rocks, Malta - islets or starter island/point/land?



Ghallis Rocks, windsurfing, surfing and scuba diving location on Malta


Ghallis Rocks is an islet or 2 just off the east shore of Malta between St Pauls Bay and St Marks Tower. Off or joined to the east coast of malta are 4 either "rolling hill top" type islands or curving like a "rolling hill top". Are they 4 stages of the formation of islands/points or are some of them linked together but not all. Could it even be the start of how land on Malta was formed?

Qrejten Point where St Mark's Tower is found appears to be a larger version or the next stage of Qawra Point. Ghallis Rocks could be either a starter island or point.



Ghallis Rock - Islands of Malta


Due to the unusual geography of the sea around Ghallis Rocks it is one of the few places to surf or windsurf and get decent waves.

The best windsurfing spots to sail are Mellieha Bay, Ghallis Rock not far from St Julians and St Thomas Bay.

Ghallis Rock is the most popular wave windsurfing spot in Malta when the wind is from W/NW/N. Ghallis Rock is situated along the coast road which connects Sliema with the north of the island. Be warned that experience is necessary to windsurf in this area. Entry to the water is from the lee of the rock. This is usually pretty safe however there's sometimes a shorebreak so watch out for the rocks. Visiting surfers should get in touch with the local wind surfers about the conditions.

Intermediate wind surfers can surf the break off the point formed by the rock while more experienced surfers can sail the windward side of the rock. Exercise caution though. The foreshore is rocky. This spot gives port tack jumping and starboard tack riding.

Does the geology that create these decent breaks/waves show gEUlogy features and give clues as to how Ghallis Rocks was formed in an Electric Universe?

This location only seems to break properly a couple times a year, I guess this time we got it at the right moment.It was one of those rear moments!!

Ghallis Rocks Malta, swim or snorkelling to visit it - EDM crater and crater with central spire?


Ghallis Rocks, although tiny has a variety of rock formations. Very sharp rock gives way to what appear to be EDM craters (similar to EDM cratering) and then there are smoother parts. If these are formed by erosion why are the other parts not like this?

Why and how has the sea eroded large crater like areas (flat bottoms not bumpy like you would expect) in the middle of the islets yet not effected ones where it is breaking waves over 24 hours a day, 365 days a year?

The image on the right also has what appears to be a central spire, classic Electric Universe crater formation. If it is erosion then how and why is that central spire still left?




Ghallis Rocks for windsurfing, gEUlogy and EDM craters?

Strange lines found on Ghallis Rocks, why is 1 line straight and the other a near perfect right angle? These types of thick lines are found on the coast where Ghallis Rocks bedrock joins the coast. Does this show the same EU effect has hit this area?

The image on the right is a wonderful example of EDM cratering in an Electric Universe. Notice the narrow entrance. If this is geology and erosion in action how has the water eroded away only that tiny section and not touched the rock to the side. How has it worn away a deep valley in front of the circle and then the circle but not the rock to the side?



Ghallis Rocks scuba duiving and windsurfing location on Malta


Ghallis Rocks has been formed on a platform that juts out to sea or connects to the mainland depending on how and when you think it was formed. The sea is very shallow between Ghallis Rocks and the coast but around its edges you have a drop off. This is what makes Ghallis Rocks such a good surfing/windsurfing place when the wind is in the right direction.

Even when you are snorkelling or scuba diving you will notice that waves suddenly swell up and break close to the island.



Ghallis Rocks - good location for surfing and scuba diving due to its geology


Ghallis Rocks has a few sharp channels running into its platform into its east side. these are likely to be where the electric currents moved along and EDM'd out the land or the discharge lines.

When snorkelling or scuba diving you will see a few very large holes (craters?) in the seafloor filled with large rocks/stones. Why is there so many large types of rock around these islaets? Some of these craters have a lot of stones in, some have none and others only have 1 very large one that is a puzzle how it get there. If it is causing the hole then why do the other rocks on the seabed not do the same?

very unusual straight lines found on Qrejten Point pointing at Ghallis Rocks


some of the strange (to geology) straight lines found on the "rolling hill top" point of of Saint Mark's Tower appear to point straight at Ghallis Rocks. This may be a coincidence as there are a number of them but what is not a coincidence is that fact that these 2 places both show signs of gEUlogy. They are formed by some Electric Universe process

Malta's islets - the birth of ridges and land?

Malta's islets - the birth of ridges and land?



Malta's islets/islands locations


Malta has a number of islets (very small islands) on its east coast. Malta has no islets on the west coast. If, in a gEUlogy world you include the "land Points" you have a couple more on the east coast of Malta (Qrejten Point and Qawra Point). if you are including rounded "rolling hill top" ends of points as part of the club you would then have the couple up at Armier/Ahrax.

the only point and it is also on a round base (but its top is certainly not round) is the very dramatic and geologically puzzling Il-Karraba between Gnejna Bay and Ghan Tuffieha.

do these islets/points show the process of the birth of ridges and land on the island of Malta? are they stages in the formation of the land itself? each one different due to the stage of the process they were at when it stopped and also due to very local conditions?

Qawra Point and Il-Karaba between them have the Wardija Ridge and valleys on either side, with the Pwales Valley being very very flat.

Saint Paul's Island has the impressive Mellieha Riadge at its end.

The northern ridge and valley system of Malta is a real puzzle to geology, how do you get such flat areas between relatively massive large ridges/ranges?

if the ridges of northern Malta were pulled up or were formed as a series of rounded hills that joined together as the land mass developed (perhaps more electroplating or mass creation) then this could explain why you get such defined ridges that seem to have no effect on the valley beside them.

it is difficult to show but the ridge tops appear to be made up of a series of undulating lines. are these where the rounded hill top have joined together as the ridges are formed?




Ghallis Rock and Ras Il-Qrejten


between Ghallis Rock and Ras Il-Qrejten is a small ridge (where the Clay Pigeon shooting club is) and you of course have the monstrous Great Fault close by. the area between these 2 places is a bit harder to investigate due to the huge pyramidal rubbish dump that has been constructed.



Marfa Ridge Malta - bays, beaches and discharge/edm crater at Ta l-Imgharrqa


the Marfa Ridge points (rounded hill top ends) seem to go perpendicular to the other ridges. Marfa Ridge does go across the island in the same way as the others but it seems to have mini valleys or flatter sections going downwards. the rounded hill top points are found on the northern side towards Comino/Gozo.

one of the things about the geology of Malta is that it has steep cliffs and headlands on its west coast and flattter east coast. this is said to be due to the island tipping but is it? could it be the formation of the island in an Electric Universe? one side of the island being transformed differently to the other? perhaps a anode/cathode or pos/neg or different ends/parts of the circuit when the islands of Malta were formed?

does this also help to explain the gEUlogy of the rounded hill top bays/points on Marfa Ridge. You have them at the north and more rocky "cliffs" on the south?



Ta l-Imgharrqa, Mellieha Bay and Marfa Ridge, Malta


is the stunning little circular bay found at Ta l-Imgharrqa a discharge crater for the rounded points and not a double rim shot crater when Mellieha Bay was formed?
