Compared to all the many wonderful beaches Malta has to offer this must surely come out at the bottom of the pile. It’s dirty, feels very unloved and has no facilities. I remember the days before they tried to make out this was a beach...More

Not the best of beaches - imported fine grit, not sand, but hire a bed and sunshade and its fine for a day. There is access to the sea if you want to swim. We didnt have transport so caught the bus the following day...More

We walked by this beach every day for over a week. It's very small and doesn't have the feeling of a real beach. More like a make shift beach for the tourists in the area. There are much nicer beaches within a 10-15 minute drive...More

Great for people who don't want a huge beach and who are confident swimmers. It is clean and well life-guarded

As is not a natural beach i would say it is alright for one day for sunbath and swim. If you want to spend more time i would advise you to buy and bring with you those shoes special design for rocky beaches

A lot of Bugibba is tatty around the edges. Neglected flower borders and unswept streets. The beach area did not look very inviting.
