Riviera Bay

Ghajn Tuffieha MaltaSunset at Riviera Bay

​Only a km away from Gnejna Bay, Riviera is considerably smaller than most beaches on the Maltese Islands​

Also known as Ghajn Tuffieha, Riviera Bay features a long flight of stairs that take you to and from the beach.

The hillside behind the beach is also a natural park which offers an unspoiled rural view all year round.The rough waves and golden sand provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Riviera Bay also has a remarkable history. On top of the cliffs, you will be able to see an ancient defense tower, built in the mid-1600s, which was used as a watch tower through World War II. The Ghajn Tuffieha Tower is one of the seven towers built by Grand Master Giovanni Paolo Lascaris of the Knights Hospitaller. It is open for visits on a daily basis.

Here, you will also find remnants of the Ghajn Tuffieha Roman Baths. The site comprises a number of rooms as well as a latrine and a corridor with small rooms, which are thought to have been changing rooms or bedrooms.

Furthermore, Riviera Bay offers the ideal setting to watch sunsets, jet and water skiing as well as other water sports that are available.
