Sep 2021 • Friends
Great Sandy beach very friend staff and perfect for renting a sun lounger and umbrella! Also very cheap about €9 for both all day! A good café with options for all day food!!

Worth taking some time to climb to Rivera Bay and then viewing point in the middle!

Lovely beach
Aug 2021
To be honest, I'm not a big fan of beach holidays, but I loved this one. The beach is beautiful and sandy, the water warm and not very deep. There are places to eat and toilets, a car park and a bus stop nearby. The sunbed and umbrella were a bit expensive (9 euros), but I only went there once so it wasn't that bad.

Not great, not terrible

The beach is beautiful and sandy, however there are only two options for payed set of umbrella and subeds - one is the default one l, which is cheaper - about 14 euros for an umbrella and 2 sunbeds and the other is way more expensive at 40 euros for the same. There are no changing rooms, but you have to use the toilets across the parking lot, which have no toilet paper or hangers of any sort, plus are disgusting.

Best beach in Malta?!
Jul 2021 • Family
Definitely one of the best beaches in Malta. Aquamarine Watersports provide great opportunities for jet skiing, parasailing, etc. Free car park near the beach but can get full. Also nice restaurants overlooking the beach.

Great Beach

Great sandy beach in Malta, the water was clean and warm...its not deep until you're out more than 50m so great for kids to play safely too. Good places to eat very close by we had lunch at the Radisson which was nice and not too expensive. The sunbeds were €14 for 2, so a little expensive but not bad overall.

Lovely sandy beach in Malta
Jul 2021
Having been to Malta many times before I know that the country isn’t blessed with plentiful sandy beaches, but regardless, my partner and I wanted a bit of a relaxing get-away during our trip to Valetta. I had always been disappointed by Għadira Bay and had struggled to find a good balance between small crowds and good beachside amenities outside of Gozo, but Golden Bay really surprised us with its large sandy beach, beautiful vistas of Għajn Tuffieħa just a short hike away, and warm, shallow waters. Getting to the Golden Bay from the city was extremely easy - just one long bus ride. When we got there, we were pleasantly surprised to find a small shop renting umbrellas (€4) and sunbeds (€5), both of which made our beach day much more comfortable. There was also a small restaurant selling drinks and food. We stayed overnight in an Airbnb in a nearby village for convenience, but the Golden Bay could definitely be an easy day trip from anywhere with a direct bus line. Definitely one of the nicest beach areas on the island!

Easy and nice sunset
Jun 2021 • Family
We spent a nice day here. You can rent beds and umbrellas or just bring your own. There’s a restaurant where you can buy drinks, food and snacks. It was crowded but it’s summer so i think it’s what I expected. We left as the sun was going down and it looked like people were setting up for an evening on the beach. The sunset was beautiful. I think we’ll go back, for sure.

We spent a full afternoon and evening here, and had a great time.

You can rent sun umbrellas and deck chairs, some good food locations as well as lublic toilets close by.

Also within walking distance to a nice sunset viewpoint

Go for the sunset

This is one of the nicest areas in Malta, and an excellent spot for sunset watchers. Nice bay and beach, though you have the big hotels on the background.

One of the nicest beaches is malta, only small but lovely and sandy unlike most of the beaches, lot of seaweed on edge of sea but once you get in crystle clear waters. Couple of nice little places to get snacks and drinks.
