Beach
“This is undoubtedly one of the most popular sandy beaches on the whole island of Malta, not only because of its extension but also because it is fully equipped for tourists. It is a good place to spend all day with your family, your friends or your partner! Tip: On the weekends is very crowded, even if there is space to put the towel, you´ll struggle to come back home by bus/taxi. Better another day of the week 😊 ”

Neighbourhood
“Absolutely our favourite in Malta! Getting down to the beach requires a descent of a tall flight of steps (over 100, but it’s the perfect place for a really chilled out afternoon of swimming and sunbathing and watching the clouds passing by. Red sand and clean water, is quiet and not very busy. Tip: At “Singita Miracle beach” every sunset becomes an unforgettable moment. The Ritual of the Sunset is celebrated every evening in the very moment the red sky disappears behind the sea, you can also enjoy the Aperitif. ”

Park
“The recently opened Il-Majjistral Nature and History Park offers miles of coastal walks across rocky paths with superb views of the cliffs and the sea. The wild habitat in the park offers a look at the typical arid Maltese countryside, with its variety of wild plants and fauna, like the common lizards and the not so common local snakes. They generally scuttle off in hiding when they hear you coming. Parking is available at several points, such as at Golden Bay. Sturdy footwear recommended.”
