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.

The bay is quite small compared with meilliha. Be aware of the possibility of jellyfish and what to do and where to go for help should you be unfortunate, The water sports people at this bay were very helpful and the prices are competitive.

A very nice bay, with fantastic views of it by the carpark above which separates it from Ghaajn Tuffeha Bay which is another lovely bay.

It’s the only sand I’ve found so far in Malta and it’s lovely. Not too busy, relaxed. Chairs available for €10. I’ll be back👊🏼

Great little beach. Very safe bathing for youngsters. Plenty of places to eat and drink with a good bus link from the rest of the island. Parking can be difficult if you choose to take the car.

Unfortunately, this is another Maltese beach ruined by commercial entities. Whether it's 'Munchies' restaurant or the hotel thats taken up views and space, the beach sadly isn't the enjoyable space that it could be.
