Amazing clear water and really soft sand. Stayed all day and had a great time swimming. There were quite a few people there but it didn’t feel overcrowded, rather quite peaceful. Saw people with ‘beach crew’ T-shirts picking up rubbish so the beach stayed clean all day. Helpful to have food options and public toilets available. Go past the statue and second lifeguard stand for a sand-only, rock free entrance to the water. Or wear reef shoes! Close to bus stop.

We visited the beach on 2 separate occasions during our stay on Gozo. Parking is on the road leading down to the beach and it does get busy but we never had to walk very far from the car. There are various venders selling souvenirs, drinks, snacks, ice cream, beach inflatables etc all along the roadside and there is a snack bar and toilets just off the beach. Sunbeds and umbrellas are also available for hire at 5 euros each for the day. This sandy beach is popular but it never felt too busy on either of the days we visited. Great for all ages.

It was a lovely day, you can swim in the water and eat/deink something. The beach was quite crowded, but had the nice feeling of oldschool family vacations. Before coming here, we went around the whole island with a taxi for a very good price, Maria Lourdes Formosa brought us everywhere safely and told us interesting things about the location and local customs. Very recommendable! (You can reach her on +356 9942 9274).

The beach is quite easy to find and there is parking along the road and a car park (€2) at the bottom. Lots of food and drink stands available and lifeguards. Can hire umbrellas and chairs if you need but loads of room to just put your towel down. Water is crystal clear, shallow and calm. Very safe for kids. It was close to our apartment but worth a drive to visit it.

So we took the hop on ferry to Gozo, then took the hop on red bus, got off at Victoria and changed to route 2 the blue route which dropped us at Ramla Bay beach.

It was really amazing, a beautiful red sand beach with warm waters. A little rocky in the sea but warm and Inviting. Very busy on a Sunday, not with tourists but locals having some beach time.

Loungers and parasols were 15 euro for two and the dude will put them where you want.

The food shacks can provide snacks and drinks but we're very busy with a 30 minute wait time, so take a picnic would be my advice.

Last hop on bus back to the boat leaves at 18.00 sharp.

A very lovely little cove , well worth a visit.

We visited this beach three times during our visit last week. On one occasion the wind was too strong for us to stay any length of time as the sand was blowing everywhere. The beach is lovely and sandy. None of the cafe's were open which was a shame, nor were the toilets. I can imagine in high season this beach is rammed and parking which we found easy, would be very difficult.

We spent about five days on Ramla Bay during our 10 day visit to Xaghra. It really is a great place to relax and enjoy being beside the sea.

You can rent sun loungers and umbrellas (€5 each). There are kiosks there to get lunch (great menu selection). There's an ice cream van that sells ice-creams of course but also beers and you can get a large bottle of water there which is handy rather than having to buy small bottles. There are also toilets beside the kiosk and they are cleaned regularly and replenished with toilet paper etc.

The beach itself is very long and it's large too so you'll always have enough space. Best place to go for a swim or a dip is the far end of the beach as there are no rocks on the walk into the sea.

Really lovely beach and could happily have spent more days lounging there!

Travelled to Gozo just to go to this beach as my daughter wanted sand which is exactly what we got but as my fella said "a beach is a beach". It was clean, there were toilets and cafes.

The sea was beautiful but don't forget your water shoes as jeez it is rocky.

Lovely swim over to the right of the beach. Not bad coffee areas and nice slightly less commercial stores. Everything for the familiy and fun. I recommend buying Prickly pear here and melon grown locally. I bought two for 1 Euro...bargain as they don't seem to sell??

Nice Red + or First Aid Centre and helful information centre.

All in all a good beach...careful where you get in but beach and water clean and clear

We had been there on a sunny day, was quite windy I must admit, but nevertheless the clean green water along the beach was lovely, not much of a crowd at this time of the year, so we had the entire beach to ourselves, 2-3hours easily spent.. Daughter relished the entire time there.. Worth the trip!!!
