We visited here whilst staying in bugibba, we caught the local bus (number 223) and it took around 15 minutes and cost 1.50euros for a day pass. you can use your city seeing to get there from bugibba but its a waste of money. Beach was clean, not too crowded and was quiet. sunbeds, suncream, drinks food etc can all... More

One of the few sandy beaches in Malta so it does get extremely busy. The beach itself is clean and maintained daily and kept that way daily.

Really liked that the beach was clean and well served by life guards, bars etc. Water sports available as are loungers, umbrellas to rent. Parking a little difficult unless you arrive super early. We got a parking ticket!

Awesome place, hot, sea is lush, only 2 things I would say is it gets very busy and the prices of the food and drink in the resturants are expensive but thats to be expected and the business can be avoided if you get there early and get a spot

Safe, romantic and the ever changing light makes this beach utterly unique. Great food at Munchies, Gelateria Granola for the best ice cream and the locals bring tables and BBQs to watch the sun go down! Perfect!
