Golden Bay, Island of Malta

3.1
#5 of 7 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.

    Arrived by bus, this beach is just down the judgments of terminus, at the bottom of the Radisson Blu. Small clean beach where we rented a single umbrella € 4 (but you can also rent sunbeds too), the sand is fine and the water is clean. There is a café restaurant and to buy trucks to freshen or accessories for bathing. In high season, given the lack of beaches in Malta, it is unfortunately quickly crowded so plan to get there before noon! I put a 3.5/5, but this note does not exist...

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.
