When Grand Master Vilhena enlarged the Vilhena Palace, he had to relocate the main gate laterally to accommodate the extra room. Even now, the original door location may be seen. It has always been the most prominent of the three gates that exist.

The natural sandy beaches at Ghajn Tuffieha Bay and, in the background, Gnejna Bay are adjacent. The two are very popular for swimming during the summer months. Walking along the pathways and crossing one bay to another while admiring the view of the coast is a treat in winter.
