“not what we expected”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

this beach was hyped to be the best in the area, but after a long walk to get there we were very disappointed with the beach. it is very small, although the water is amazingly clear. to be honest if on Marfa Ridge, Arnier beach is much nicer!

“Beautiful Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We walked from Mellieha Bay to Paradise Bay, about 45 minutes. Lots of little nooks and crannies. The restaurant/coffee stop was open and very welcoming. We went mid morning and it was quiet, with folks arriving for Easter Sunday lunch. We hope to return to Malta and would return to this little bay.

“Very clean and secluded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Although it was small, it was clean and secluded, we relaxed and there was hardly anyone there. No shops/food around but we came to just relax and brought some drinks with us

“Dont get caught out parking your car”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We parked in the carpark at the top of the cliff, we did not stay long because the beach was filthy and the water quality was suspect. Found we had been given a parking ticket for 100 Euros! for not correctly parking in a bay. I hold my hand s up for this haenus crime, however I suspect given the state of the reckless car abandonment all around me this may have something to do with mine being a hire car and therefore an easy target. Turned out to be an expensive day at the beach.

“Great Little beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

This is a great little beach really clean and well worth a visit. We have always been off season so it was quiet (we were the only people there) in the season i suspect it can get busy but you shuold check it out. Take a walk to the Red Tower then walk over the cliffs to Paradise Bay to cool off
