Golden Bay, Island of Malta

3.6
#3 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 Island of Malta visit planner.

  • Golden Bay is a fine sandy beach. It is quite wide which allows not to walk on it despite the fact that it is often shielded in the summer. The cleanliness of the beach is very small. Indeed, when you see children having fun with trash, you can ask questions... Despite this, the beach is a good starting point for a hike. The beach is close to Cliff which once climbed allows you to see the entire beach and inland Maltese! I recommend it.

  • Nice clean Sandy beach... a perfect place to spend whole day there We rented out sunbed (5€ for whole day)... spent good few hours just lying down and enjoying beautiful view, sun and sea Spent sometime in water... couple of round of beer from cafe on the beach And if you like hiking, you may climb up to cliff near by
  • Best beach on Malta! There is also a bar which serves food on the beach and a restaurant nearby. The sunset here is the best, make sure you dont miss!
