On the right hand side when your facing the sea in the parking area there is a wide rocky area sticking out and another small 'island' nxt to this outcrop..Thats "ic-chicken"
Its gnejna's "slipway" where boats are launched from,there is also a bunch of signs saying its illegal to park there.

Not much at the edge maybe 15-16ft or approx 5m on the side facing the small island and a bit more on the other side say around 7m-9m or there about's  :)

regarding hooks, for shore fishing such as Vopi, Kahli, Sargi or even tal-qiegh etc. etc... and talking about hook sizes 7 to 8, what is the difference between a hook which is wide (but short) and a hook which is narrow (but longer)?

The narrow hooks I mean those which have the bend (U-shape) very narrow, when compared to those which have the U-shape more wider...

am i clear?  ??? :-[

Normally those hooks with a long leg (sieq twila) are used to fish with bait, such as worms, shrimps etc.. Those shorter normally are there when using bait such as bread, pasta etc..

ah ok... i thought it depends on the type of fish you are fishing for...

Is it worth trying for vopi from the Bugibba pier in the evening? Would Gnejna be a better choice?
