While not a distinguished site in itself, this cave in the cliffs on the west side of the plateau of Għajn Abdul, one of Gozo’s flat-topped hills west of Santa Luċija and overlooking Dwejra, yielded a quantity of very early sherds of the Għar Dalam phase (c. 5000-4500 BC). Other caves nearby were destroyed by quarrying, though some more early sherds were recovered before they disappeared.
