Latnija Cave is located in the Aħrax peninsula in the north of Malta. It is sometimes referred to as Għar Tuta, translated literally to “cave of blackberries”. This hints that blackberries could have been harvested in the area. Għar Tuta and Latnija are used to refer to both the general area in vicinity of the cave and the cave itself.
The cave is easily accessible and is situated in a picturesque hiking area, with Paradise Bay and a dog sanctuary in the area. The cave is especially popular with rock-climbers, since the cave offers a hard roof and has the possibility for an overhanging climb.
