Nice beach

Lovely little beach with good facilities, as we went in November it was comparatively quiet, would imagine it gets very busy in the summer

Went to Golden Sands, for a day trip fabulous clean beach, with beautiful views, part of the beach is privately owned by Radissons Hotel, which is amazing.

It's definitely a gorgeous view. Highly recommend you reserve sunbeds if you want to avoid having everyone and their grandmother drag their ice chests over your blanket. The water is generally clean unless it's right after a storm. This beach is probably your best bet for early and late season swimming too, as the cove is sheltered and fairly shallow.... More

This is one of very few beaches in Malta and it is one of the best. The beach is very big and there is a lovely cafe right in the middle which sells great cakes. The area is well sheltered from an wind and its really easy to get to by bus.
