No, I believe not, but plenty of water taxis from the harbour side at Marsaxlokk at €5.00 per person.

You can - I have not been there for quite a long time. I recall it's signed & you park in a field and walk down......

It's bit remote to walk too.

It's very popular for those who like to jump in off the rocks.

Just found this which is a reasonable summary:

St. Peter's Pool is a beautiful natural pool ideal to spend a relaxing day away from the busy tourists spots

St. Peter’s Pool is one of the most beautiful and stunning natural swimming pools in Malta and is located close to Marsaxlokk at the tip of Delimara Point in the southwest of Malta.

The sea at St. Peters Pool is crystal clear with an amazing azure and light green colors and offers excellent snorkelling opportunities. The flat rocks around St Peter’s Pool provide perfect sunbathing areas and the high rocks offer some shade from the strong sun.

Ladders are available to access the sea and the more adventurous bathers have the option of diving into the waters from a few meters up. St. Peter’s Pool is popular with the locals, especially for those living in nearby villages and with tourists who are looking for a quieter place to spend their day. However, due to its remote location and bad roads leading there it’s rarely ever crowded and you can always find a spot just for yourself.

Make sure that you bring whatever you need for a day out as there are no facilities whatsoever. This natural swimming pool is may not suitable for small children at all times and can have rubbish floating around in it on windy days. Nevertheless, stunning St. Peter’s Pool is a real treat for those looking for a special spot out of the busy tourist areas.

Parking: There is parking on top of the cliff, but the road leading there is very bad. Parking by the main road is recommended.

Recommended for children: If confident in swimming

I've been blown away by the pictures of St Peters Pool and am trying to fit it into our itinerary. My wife and I will be in Malta for 4 full days. To anyone who has been, would you recommend that we make it here or are there other swimming spots that would be better? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

It really is a nice spot but will take effort to get too. Perhaps combine it with lunch at Marsaxlokk then jump in one of the water taxis?

Jared it's worth a visit,as said 20/25 min walk from Marsaxlokk,we drive and park on road and walk to it,takes about 10 minutes walk,but maybe as a first time visitor go to Marsaxlokk and get one of the water taxis to it.another word of warning there are no facilities there is cafes etc,so take any food drink etc with you you may need.

Peter`pool was a regular swimming place for the late Dom Mintoff , prime minister of Malta .

Apparently he lived nearby and swam there daily.
