I was lucky to visit this small sandy beach on May, which was very calm, with only a few people. It is difficult to get there! If you don't want to spend a lot of money on taxi, you have to walk for at least 20 minutes. But it worth it! The sea is incredibly bright, the sand is clear... More

Paradise bay is a shallow sandy bay ideal for swimming, and I presume that the parking spaces fill up quickly in the summer. There are restaurants nearby so no hassle to spend a day there.

a beautiful sandy beach starting with shallow waters for kids & a glorious sea to enjoy a leisurely swim. Although a very busy beach especially on Sundays and a long way down & back up, it is worth every second you spend there especially when it's blowing south winds as this bay is usually crystal clear!!! Brollies & deckchairs available... More

Just before the high season is there we spent lovely afternoon. It worth hiking to the Karraba cliffs as from there you have stunning view above the beach. But avoid going in the high season as it will be overcrowded.

To access this beach there are about 80 steps down to the beach from the car park. once down on the beach there is everything one would need, showers, toilets, sun beds, cafe, restaurant, b'bques in summer. As with all beaches it gets very busy in summer.

Lots of steps to go down, and up again when you leave. This beach in the height of summer is not for me, out of season it's perfect! Crystal clear waters, good facilities and I think the food there is very good, great spot for lunch. Salads, meat and fish dishes all great. Paradise bay is a place I would... More

Great beach, nice and clean, good swimming and good facilities but absolutely heaving with people, like every beach in Malta. The kayak hire is really cheap here and fun to do. It might be worth going to this beach just so you have the novelty of having your photo taken by the bus stop which says Paradise.

A wonderful small organised beach, with soft sand, crystal clear water, amazing rock formations. A real peaceful place to relax, out of season. Very easy to reach also by bus( get off at"Marfa").

Sunday mornings are when the bikers and vintage car owners all gather here at Paradise Bay to compare their shiny vehicles. The cafe copes well with the numbers and is not expensive. The scuba diving centre and Radisson Hotel facilities provide many options for enjoyment. RECOMMENDED
