Maltas Beaches

In Malta there are some very nices beaches, though there are also some which are not that nice. The following sites should give you a broad overview of what you can expect of each beach and therefore save you time and possible disappointment. In fact there are only very few, but very nice, beaches in Malta which have a sandy beach (please see below). These are mostly situated in the north of Malta (Paradise Bay, Armier Bay, Mellieha Bay - largest beach, Golden Bay - very nice in a bay, Gnejna and Ghajn Tuffieha - less accessable for tourists), except for one (Pretty Bay) in Birzebbuga. Gozo has one vey nice beach (Ramla Bay) - should not be missed during a visit. The east coast is very rocky, though there are some swimming spots. St. Georges Bay, an artifical beach in Paceville (St. Julians) is also sandy, but to the originals not comparable in quality.
