We were heading to Marsaxlokk and saw that this is right beside there. We didn't find much pretty about this place. There's construction happening nearby and the big port right in front ruins all the views...

Small, tidy (more or less) beach... very quiet sea, clean water. If you don't mind the loading/ unloading of the huge cargo ships nearby (and some extra polluted air from time to time) and occasional noise made by planes passing by, it's ok. Acceptable overall,...More

A fantastic place to visit. Currently undergoing some changes but should be great once all done. Have been coming here for almost 14 years. It’s not a bustling tourist spot and only has a few restaurants and bars but it’s value for money.

Spent Monday 8th August at Pretty Bay with friends and family. Great company, warm sea and cold beer from local cafeteria. What more do you want for a holiday after the festa

I’ve been here because I was curious but honestly? It’s a waste of time. Human beings have been able to destroy what probably was a nice spot :( (Also locals around aren’t friendly as they say)
