Nice location, clean beach with clear water. P.S. be careful not to burn your feet- the sand is too hot sometimes:)

Want a day away from the hotel pool ? - then this is the place to be. Just lovely. Attentive lifeguards. Beach bar / restaurant is very good too. 223 bus from Bugibba brings you here and takes you back. Runs every 20 minutes. Fantastic ! Although not disabled, we did notice disabled chairs to take you into the sea... More

We met up with friends who went to live in Malta and they took us to the beach. I was very impressed because not only is the sand lovely and clean but Malta has lovely sea water as it clean and clear. I suppose it could be viewed as busy but I never noticed that at the time because I... More

Its a nice beach, but nothing overly special. We thought it was a pity that there was quite a bit of rubbish and cigarette butts on the beach, it took from the beach itself. Make sure you go on a calm day as well, we went when it was a bit windy and regretted it.

Great place, easy to get to by buss. Beautiful water very clean. Lots of water sports activities to do. The bars offer good food for descent price. Can get very busy. We had a great day there.

A nice secluded bay – gets a bit crowded as the day wears on but first thing in the morning until about mid day it was lovely. Crystal clear water and plenty of rocks to go snorkeling at the edge of the bay with lots of fish to see.

Perfect beach with clean golden sand, lovely clear water and snack bar / restaurant . Plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas available at a reasonable charge. Can be a bit crowded on weekends and school holidays as it is very popular with locals but plenty of room for everyone.

I think if you like beaches and are visiting Malta then this beach if for you. It is popular with locals and tourists alike. This does mean however, that on a weekend, it gets extremely busy; you could say overcrowded. Naturally, depending on what time of day you go… it does get littered; not everyone cleans up after themselves, which... More

This is a tiny beach and way too crowded for our tastes. You are sitting on top of each other. We would never choose to visit a hotel with so little beach space.
