It really is the best beach in Malta however do not set you expectations too high. Since Malta is a rocky area beaches are in small bays and generally too crowded. Literally there are full of people on the beach and in the sea so sometimes you cannot see the sand or the water due to crowd. Paradise Bay is... More

This beach is way too busy in August, the food nearby isn't great either, it's self service. The beach isn't that spectacular either. I would recommend popeye village or the beach beside ramla bay resort instead.

I think the day we were there it was a culmination in all the right elements aligning. The sun was shining, there was very little wind (enough to make a cool breeze), there was a corporate event that hired an amazing DJ and the music was perfect. Spent a great time on the beach, and then moved to the bar/restaurant... More

Spent the day here, lovely clear sea.Only a small bay with beds so you do need to be early. Easy to get to by bus.

Visited as part of a trip around Malta . The beach area is not suitable for the disabled traveler but the views are well worth going there and the walk along the promenade was great

We were there many times, last time in the middle of July 2016. This is one of the nicest sandy beaches in Malta... but at that time sea water was full of garbage (from a sail ship ? I don´t know) : plastic bags, feather etc. I complained to the supervisor of Malta´s Red Cross directly in the beach, but... More

The beach was beautiful very small and very busy. The sea was stunning. There is a little shop there and there is also somewhere to eat. Would recommend!
