Overview

The immediate area is open and rather barren and rocky. A road leads down to the lovely, sandy beach sheltered on three sides by low cliffs. Mosta 5 1/2 miles, St Paul's Bay 3 miles, airport 17 miles.

One of Malta's best beaches that is really relaxing and offers a nice beach bar to grab a drink (or two). Lovely to go for a swim and enjoy a sandy beach

The best beach on Malta by far. Has 2 beach bar/ restaurants nearby and plenty of parking spaces. Open top and Malta transport buses all call on the approach road. Can get very busy though
