Safe Haven Gardens are located at the tip of the Senglea Peninsula and offer a splendid view of the Grand Habour. The Iconic vedette or gardjola as it is foundly known by locals is a hexagonal Sentry box-the “ear” and “eye” carvings of this gardjola highlight the purpose for which it was originally built-the constant vigilance of the Habour against enemy vessels. There is also a famingo above a commemorative plaque.

Centrally located within the garden is a fountain in thr shape of the eight-pointed cross. This is of recent construction , and was installed by the Isla Local Council.

Vitorin Galea (1926-1996), a well-beloved Maltese Comedienne is honoured with a bronze bust.

Born in Isla, Vitorin was a well known actress, admired by successive generations of local theatre goers and television and radio audiences.
