12 August 2016

The heat of the summer sun is the perfect excuse to visit one of the many scenic beaches in Malta , not that you would need an excuse to visit them! With so many to choose from, you’re spoilt for choice. To help you decide where to visit, here’s a list of the top 5 best beaches in Malta. Book flights to Malta now and you’ll be sipping a cold drink by the crystal-clear Mediterranean Sea before you know it! What's more, with Air Malta's #bagsflyfree so you can bring as many bikinis, swimming trunks and summer outfits as you need (20 kg free checked baggage + 10kg free hand luggage)! 

St. Peter’s Pool

Located in the south-west of Malta, this unique naturally formed swimming pool is a must-see for everyone. The flat rock surface above the pool makes for the perfect location to sunbathe. A ladder will allow you access to the warm waters, but if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous you can also dive into the clear blue sea beneath.


Ghajn Tuffieha

This beautiful beach, also known as Riviera, is located in the north-west of Malta in an unspoilt setting far away from any built up areas. It is only accessible via a large flight of stairs, but the view overlooking the bay as you begin to descend really is something to behold. The quiet, relaxing atmosphere makes Ghajn Tuffieha a very popular spot for locals and tourists alike.

The Blue Lagoon

Situated on the tiny island of Comino, this beach is a popular location for tourists in the summer months. With the clear shallow waters, the pale whites of the sand and the diverse marine life, The Blue Lagoon looks like something from a movie. This beach is only accessible by boat from Malta or Gozo, making it a really unique experience to visit.

Ramla l-Hamra Bay

Translated to English this means “Red Beach”, a fitting name due to the beautiful orange red sand found here. Ramla Bay is the largest sandy beach in Gozo, and arguably one of the most beautiful on the islands. Enclosed on either side by protruding cliffs, the views from the beach are a wonder to behold. High up on the western cliffs you’ll be able to see Calypso Cave. If you’re feeling up for a hike this a great location to view Ramla Bay in its entirety.

San Blas Bay

If you’re looking for a very peaceful trip to the beach, then San Blas Bay in Gozo is the place for you. What makes this beach so quiet is the fact that the road leading down is closed to traffic due to how steep it is. This means you need to descend and ascend the climb on foot. It’s worth the effort though as this unspoilt sandy beach in Gozo provides a lot of natural beauty. The rocks around the beach make for fantastic snorkelling spots too.

You could easily spend all day at either one of these beaches, so why not bring a picnic along with you? Try some of the local Maltese cuisine, such as ftira, and enjoy your time surrounded by the serenity of the waves.
