Golden Beach

This beach is one of the best sandy beached of Malta, just between the rocks, this gives you an extra dimension of your summer holiday.

We went there in February and enjoyed having Malteese beer (bluelabel) with my Malteese friend. The sun, weather, sand, kids, dogs, couples and nature all were great.

Not overly impressed by this beach... I'd rather have been snorkelling off the rocks! There was a nice restaurant there though and you could buy beach loungers. Just take flip flops and a hat as it gets very hot there!

Hair raising drive along the coast road, the public transport in Malta could use an upgrade, the bus was so difficult to start the driver had to slow down to let passengers off and on as he couldn't risk stopping.

Staying at Radisson blu hotel so this beach is just outside the hotel. Lovely beach. We went in January and had some lovely weather. People were still enjoying the beach. Not sure what its like in summer but very handy for the hotel.

This is a beautiful sandy beach on the coast and even in November was fab to see surfers catching some waves. Take a walk along the coastal path by the headland for amazing views of the shore and sea!
