Golden Bay, Island of Malta

3.2
#5 of 7 in Beaches in Island of Malta
Beach Nature / Park
Jet ski, paraglide, or take a banana boat ride at Golden Bay. The second-largest sandy beach on the island, the sands provide plenty of room to play games on the beach and rest on a lounge chair. Enjoy a meal at one of the nearby restaurants or have a barbecue. There is a campsite located nearby, as well as a bus station, and you can park your car adjacent to the bay. It gets extremely hot during the day, so be sure to bring some shade or money to rent an umbrella. Put Golden Bay and other Mellieha attractions into our Mellieha trip generator, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • For those who went to Golden Bay, the boat tour is a must. There will be Charlie aboard his boat Discovery will make you spend a fantastic day taking you in discovery of clear water and caves. He offered even to take pictures and make videos while bathing in one of the caves. Will give you an unforgettable day. Super recommended.

Where to stay in Mellieha

To fully enjoy Mellieha's beaches, stay in either Mellieha Bay or Mellieha village. These two areas will provide you with the best access to Malta's largest sandy beach, as well as several restaurants and bars. Both fancy hotels and more affordable options can be found here. Golden Bay, Paradise Bay, Marfa, and Cirkewwa are also good options for lodging, but are situated farther out of the city, away from the main village and its amenities.
