Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Malta  /  Island of Malta  /  Golden Bay

Golden Bay, Island of Malta

3.5
#5 of 14 in Beaches in Island of Malta
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 on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Mellieha visit planner.

  • About 10 min away from the Centre Mellienas which is rather empty and desolate, probably in the summer Golden Bay, a small Bay with Sandstrand.Zu of this time of year something glanzvoller and more interesting.

  • If you have a car it's language, see, cool place, but not with the "I need to see." Cool beach between cliffs, but the beaches in the world fully, and Malta has many interesting places to offer.

  • I love Golden Bay. It’s a beautiful beach with choice of sunbed or towel. Snack place is always good. Only downside is it can attract a lot of seaweed. Past the seaweed that washes up, water is crystal clear and lovely.
  • Good beach with sand! Familiar and not very crowded. You can lay down and enjoy he sun calmly The Algae in the sea is not a problem After take a drink in the apple's eye Worth it 😎👍🏽
  • Very pretty but quite busy, had lots of fun playing in the sand.
  • Possibly the best beach in Malta. The only time there will be jellyfish and seaweed is when the wind is blowing in to the bay. Check the weather report for the wind direction before choosing which beach in Malta to go to that day.
  • sandy beach. Good for families! You can rent sun beds and umbrellas. But too much of seaweed

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.
