Wied il-Għasri is very popular with divers who like to explore the surrounding underwater caves. The very narrow bay is a haven for those who seek a quiet bathing area.
Wied il-Għasri has its source at Dbieġi Hill. It winds its way through Għasri between Żebbuġ and Ġordan Hill and flows into the sea between very high impressive cliffs. A very interesting spot in this place is a cave close to the shore in which a shaft was hewn up to the top of the steep cliffs. A mill made up of several pails used to be rigged up in order to bring up the sea water to fill the neighbouring saltpans.
