Beaches in Malta and Gozo

Best Beaches in Malta?
You are never far away from the coast in Malta or Gozo, whether its a sandy beach or rocky outcrop, the sea breeze is in the air and enticing you in. A large proportion of the coastline of Malta is ricky coastline but there are alot of places to relax on the rocks and indeed a number of beaches.
Mellieha is where you will find the largest beach in Malta. If you are looking for a Malta beach holiday then Mellieha is going to be top of the list. A number of hotels are available in the local area including the all inclusive Seabank Resort situated right opposite the beach. There is also a mix of self-catering and other 4 star hotels providing bed breakfast and half board options.
Paradise Bay is located at the top of Malta. It is a relatively small strecth of beach but the crystal clear water is perfect for snorkelling and offers a range of facilities. Two further bays are located nearby if you like to mix it up a little. Paradise Bay is a little isolated and the only hotel here is the Paradise Bay Hotel but if you like to mix your Malta Beach Holiday with a some exploration, the ferry is on the doorstep making Gozo within easy reach.
Qawra are Bugibba are popular resorts with a mix of facilities and amenities in the local area. Here you will find a small man made beach and lots of flat rock with jetties and steps to enter the sea for swim. There are a huge variety of hotels for all budgets and group sizes from singles and couples to families and groups. A great base quite central along the coastline with transport links to anywhere on the island.
In Sliema there are no beaches but it does have large sections of flat rocks which run all the way up to St Julians that allow you to sit back with your lotion and sunbathe. You can quietly watch the world pass by without the excess noise and fuss that you can sometimes find on a beach. Perfect for a sunglasses and book moment where you can quite easily lose a day before heading back for your evening entertainment.
On the south west coast of Malta, away from some of the more tourist resorts you will find Golden Bay and Ghajn Tuffieha Bay. A favourite with the locals, they can get quite busy on a weekend but a great place to find some space on a weekday compared to some of the busier beaches where most of the tourists flock to. Quiet, Peaceful and a great place for families.
Best beaches in Gozo
Ramla Bay is the biggest and most well known sandy beach in Gozo near to the town of Nadur. Its golden red sand strecthes along half a kilomtre of the coastline and is surrounded by valleys and countryside. There are lots of facilities here but it can get busy during the peak summer season.
Although slightly smaller, San Blas Bay is a more secluded and quieter than Ramla Bay. Its unspoiled landscape makes it all the mnore beautiful and the clear waters allow for great snorkelling. You will need to navigate a steep path down to the bay so may not be suitable for those with any mobility difficulties.
Marsaforn and Xlendi are two popular seaside resorts in Gozo. Both have small sandy stretches and surrounded by restaurants and bars so facilities are a plenty here. You can walk right out of your hotel and onto the beach at either of these hotels - the 4* Calypso Hotel in Marsalforn and the 4* St Patricks Hotel in Xlendi.
