Beaches in Malta
The Blue Lagoon
Although the Blue Lagoon does not have much of a beach, it is without doubt the most beautiful places in Malta. The crystal turquoise waters and white sandy bottom here is ideal for swimming and snorkeling. It is one of the main attractions in Malta and can get quite busy especially during the summer months. A visit to these tranquil waters should be very high on your list of things to do in Malta.
Located in the north western coast of the island Golden Bay is an ideal beach for paddling and swimming due to its shallow waters which allow you to walk out into the sea for some distance. This beach is also a very popular place to watch the sunset during the summer, with the headland above the beach offer great views of both Golden Bay and its neighbouring beach Ghajn Tuffieha.
Located next to Golden Bay is the smaller but beautiful beach of Ghajn Tuffieha which means “Apple’s Eye” in Maltese. This beach is slightly more difficult to get to as you have to descend the some 180 steps to access the beach itself. This beach doesn’t get as crowded as other beaches in Malta probably due to the access difficulty but it is worth the trip in our opinion.
This is the biggest of the beaches in Malta and very popular with families due to its shallow waters and amenities. There are very good amenities for the family along the beach and if you’re looking for something a bit more active such as water skiing, parasailing, jet ski’s or windsurfing then this is the beach to visit.
Located on the tranquil isle of Gozo, this beach is famous for its reddish sand and its shallow waters ensure that it is a perfect beach for families. Ramla has the best of both worlds as you can either laze the day away or if your feel like doing some local exploring there is the famous Calypso’s Cave and the nearby roman remains.
