Golden Bay, Island of Malta

3.6
#4 of 13 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.

  • Not that many in Malta but this is one of the best Can be very busy at weekends as used by locals as well as residents of the Raddison  more »
  • The beach quite wide, but unfortunately not the cleanest full of pets after cigarettes and other small waste. Near a restaurant where you can eat and free parking. In General, you can spend a few hours with the family.

  • Beautiful small Cove: Sandy and maintained with a direct bus connection. Great hotel and some restaurants/bars located on-site. Water was too cold for swimming, but it was still nice there.

  • I wish they would clean the water more often, and also some public showers would be nice. The view is breathtaking, and the beach is great. There are cool waves in the water sometimes, it is a lot of fun to jump in them.
  • Best beach in Malta, period. Good bus service with a/c. Lots of sand. Clear water, one can see the bottom of the beach. So cool it feels like a giant swimming pool. Make sure you swim around the bottom left of the bay, excellent snorkelling experience. Beautifull fish around there. Will go back to Malta just to swim there again.
  • A beautiful spot to take in the sunset. There is a small cafe on the beach that serves delicious food, cakes and drinks at a very reasonable price. We visited off season so it was cool in the evening but the beach was very quiet and just the thing to relax after a day sightseeing.
  • Me and my travel buddy stopped here after a day of seeing some sights on the island. The baby and the sander absolutely beautiful but this location is incredibly crowded because it is one of the few Sandy beaches in Malta. I prefer the more Rocky secluded beaches on the island.
  • Good sandy beach and because of the wind its great for surfing! there is a choice of three beaches here if you won't a quiet spot take a short walk over the cliffs past the tower there is another beach to enjoy.
