Top 5 Beaches in Malta
Just add sun cream!
Malta’s island-status has been one her most defining factors. In history, this made it an easy target for pirates, while its secured ports made it perfect for fleets of ships to berth at.
Today, the fact that Malta is an island makes it an ideal summer destination – and with so many beautiful beaches dotting its periphery, you’ll never be far from one!
Blue Lagoon (Comino) is by far Malta’s most beautiful beach; albeit one of its smallest. It is particularly famous for its crystal-clear waters and the magnificent scenery.
Golden Bay (Malta, north) is one of Malta’s most famous spots. Set within a cliff, this beach is popular both during the day for swimming, as well as in the evenings for beach get-togethers.
Ramla Bay (Gozo), is also known as Ir-Ramla l-Hamra, a name which comes from its reddish sand. This is located just below Calypso Cave, made famous by Ulysses in the Grecian epic, The Odyssey. Although it gets quite busy in the summer months, our word of advice would be to take flip flops with you, as the sand gets particularly hot!
St Peter’s Pool (Malta, south) may not be the easiest bay to get to, but it’s definitely worth it. This natural inlet has stunningly-blue waters and doesn’t tend to be as busy as the sandy beaches in the north. It’s best to drive here or get a taxi.
Mellieha Bay (Malta, north), which is also referred to as Ghadira Bay, is the longest sandy beach on the island. It is a favourite of many locals, so make sure you go early to find a good spot on its golden sand.
