Golden Bay, Island of Malta
(3.1/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Last day we decide to do in Valletta on morning and afternoon beaches. Towards sunset we arrive at Golden Bay. There is parking with tourists arriving by bus and some machines. At the top, between the two golfetti, there is a tower that resembles Calafuria Livorno. It is surrounded by small olive trees and offering a magnificent view. In the beach of Golden Bay there were some people who were bathing. The sand is probably red clay; get there consists of making many steps, I honestly don't know if both beautiful or just beautiful.
