Esplora is a recently opened Interactive Science Centre in Villa Bighi, Kalkara, Malta's south. While the kids are entertained for a few hours, the parents can walk along the front towards the three cities, viewing the Valletta Bastions from a perspective that is rarely touted but just as stunning as the Sliema side view.
Duck Village, easily identified by its donated decorations, is sprinkled with little dwellings for neighbouring ducks to rest in. Although the humanitarian initiative is called Duck Village, it is home to various animals, including cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs. The Duck Village is located on Manoel Island near Gzira.
