dc.description.abstractAnyone wending his way down to Gnejna Bay in Mgarr on a Sunday afternoon in the sweltering summer heat will certainly get more than he bargained for. He will be confronted with a plethora of cars parked haphazardly on the fringes of the sandy beach and even driven on the clay slopes and on the rocky outcrop to the side of the beach right up to the water's edge. And if the visitor has a modicum of ecological awareness, the disillusion is even greater when he sees the vestiges of the once luxuriant sand dune being piled (or better still, bulldozed) back by a tailor-made piece of machinery parked on site so as to make way for the passage of cars. Recent plans by MEPA (I believe with the collaboration of the Mgarr council) for an adequate parking system at Gnejna seem to have been shelved or the progress was such that the boat for the mass summer exodus was missed once more this year.en_GB
