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.

Although we stay at Xemxija we walk the Roman road to Golden Bay at least once on our holidays. A cold beer and a dip in the sea is great after the walk. Lovely sandy beach and the facilities are good.

Beautiful sand beach surrounded by trees. Best period to enjoy the place is April, May and June because after will be too crowded.
