Enjoy Malta's 15 Most Beautiful Beaches and relax ...

It goes without saying really, but on an archipelago of islands in the middle of the Mediterranean, you’re always just a few minutes away from the next gorgeous beach. If you're planning to enjoy the sun and sea during your Malta holidays, here's a guide to the best beaches in Malta.


Malta’s best-selling characteristic is by far its beautiful crystalline waters. Over 700,000 tourists pay a visit to Malta during the summer to experience the warm mediterranean climate and its picturesque locations. Whether it’s sandy beaches you fancy or secluded bays that tickle your fancy, Malta and its archipelago has it all on offer. If you’re planning to spend a summer in Malta, you have got to take a tour of what we believe are the best beaches in Malta.

Those who prefer snorkeling and jumping into the sea would probably prefer the many rocky inlets that Malta and Gozo have to offer. Towards the south of Malta, Delimara and St. Peter’s Pool are the most frequented bays, even though they’re not that easy to get to. You’ll also find great central spots for a dip around Sliema and St Julians - long stretches of rocky beach with lidos and restaurants popping up along the promenade if you need some shade or a bite to eat.

Sandy beaches are the more child-friendly, and all the larger, more popular beaches are fully equipped with sunbeds and umbrella rentals, eateries and bathrooms, as well as water sports rental facilities. You’ll find these beaches towards the north of Malta - with some of the more popular ones being

  • Golden Bay and Għajn Tuffieha Bay (enjoy one of Malta's most beautiful and romantic sunsets at the latter)
  • Il-Bajja ta' l-Għadira or Mellieħa Bay - Malta's largest sandy beach
  • Armier and Little Armier
  • Paradise Bay
  • Ġnejna Bay

Best Times to Visit

While the beaches marked as secluded are mostly not crowded, even these beaches can get a bit busy on weekends. The ones marked as popular, will get busy even during the week.

If you'd like to really enjoy the spectacular beauty of each beach, try to get to the location by 9AM, or even earlier, where you'll only find a few families with young kids who like to avoid the harsh sun of the late morning and afternoons.

Even the popular beaches won't have many people at those times, and you can enoy the clear blue sea.

After 12PM on Sunday and especially in the afternoon, most beaches will get very busy.

Also, if you want to experience breathtaking natural beauty, make sure you stay at the beach after 6PM, to enjoy the sun setting, with the incredible range of colours that brings with it.

Let's go through a few of both the popular and more secluded Malta beaches.

1. Ramla Bay, Gozo


Ramla Bay locally known as Ir-Ramla il-Ħamra (The Red Beach) - pictured below - is the largest of this kind in Gozo, known for it’s warm red sands.
