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.

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)

We went on a Sunday and the beach was extremely busy with a view over an industrial port. The food was cheap but you got given raffle tickets and felt impersonal. We sat on a quieter rocky bit further along. Maybe avoid at weekends unless...More

A convenient beach if you are located very close but is not worth trekking too. We are staying in Valletta and visited on the recommendation of a taxi driver but we felt it was time that we had wasted. The view is of a sea...More

We did not expect Pretty Bay to be dominated by a huge container port with huge ships and cranes. There was little there other than a manufactured beach, children's play area and some buildings and shops that had seen better days. We got on the...More
