From these points the island and comino and malta can clearly bee see. The village can be reached directly from the harbour of Mġarr or from ir-Rabat .

As with most of Gozitan Villages Nadur life revolves around the baroque Parish Church which dominates the Nadur skyline.

You will find various eateries in both squares ranging from snack bars, the local football club, up to very good quality dining.

There are also other shops in the area which include the village grocery store, a confectionary a modern pharmacy, a stationary, This church stands imposingly in the sizeable central village square opposite which is an old stone cross and is dedicated to Saint Paul and Saint Peter. The feast of Saints Paul and Peter is a national holiday and is celebrated on the 29th of June. Locally this is referred to as “L-Imnarja”. The feast is connected with the start of summer. In fact the name derives from luminaria (illumination).
