Ghajn Tuffieha Bay 2012492 viewsSee Prefect's earlier pic of Ghajn Tuffieha and his remark about the steps. Not content with that, last time there we hiked to the small cave to the left just below the summit of the plateau, then on to Gnejna Bay. Believe me, those steps were a killer on the way back!1 commentsIvan
