Absolutely loved Malta, the fact that you could just about get room one end of the Island to the other is great, when we arrived the beach was very busy... However, it was later in the day so people were starting to leave. Very clean sand, with turquoise water. There's a food place nearby and close to the toilets. Water... More

We stayed in Valletta, which is so convenient for transportation. We took bus #44. The bus stops by the Golden Sands Bay Beach and you really have to walk down the hill to the beach.

I liked that it was sandy (rare stuff on the island), but it was very crowded. There are sunbeds, showers and also food and drinks.

Nice little beach, good facilities and nice water. Sand a little dirty with the usual cigarette ends but worth a visit. Jelly fish are prone to visit the sea so might want to wear water shoes- I didn't and was fine but just in case? Bus 223 from Bugibba/ St Pauls Bay takes you straight there in about 15 mins... More

We, myself husband 2 daughters aged 12 14 went to this beach via public transport. The beach is lovely and clean. There were a lot of wasps when we were there. The water/sea was nice and little white fish swimming in it too. We only stopped for a couple of hours and paddled our feet. The temperature of the air... More
