In March, not too many people, but there were a few people sitting in the sun. There is a car park and some food/drink kiosks. I would imagine that this beach is busy in the summer as it is one of Malta's better known sandy...More

We’ve discovered this place on our last day and it was on of my favourite place to visit. Lovely sandy beach and the view was amazing. If we’ve found this earlier we would have spend most of our time here.

Definitely one of the nicest beaches in Malta, with areas of lovely clear blue water. Go for a walk around the headland as well, which has great views back over Golden Bay.
