“Nothing special even with the Blue Flag”

“Nothing special even with the Blue Flag”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

St. George's Bay was a true disappointment. A tiny artificial sand beach is probably the only such beach around Valetta. Therefore it is overcrowded even in the shoulder season. I wonder, what it might look like in the high season. In spite of the Blue Flag award, rubbish is plenty and blown by the wind. Water quality looks good, but plastic bags in the water spoil the joy of bathing. Those who are looking for true golden sand beaches should go elsewhere.

“Best”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

the only sand beach in saint julian's, the st george's bay it's a very crowed place during the day, but in the evening there is almost nobody. here i used to sunbathe, and also to get drunk. Twice i spent the night here in the water with friends waiting for wonderful sunrise you can admire. all the restaurants and main services are near, but as i said, too many people are here in summer. try to visite also the others beautiful beaches of the maltese island!!

“A small clean sandy beach ideal for families”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

This beach has a gently shelving shoreline so is suitable for families with young children as well as couples. There are a few food retailers and bars within easy reach so you can also enjoy a meal or drink nearby. The beach is kept very clean and dogs are not allowed on in the summer.

“Gorgeous place, most relaxing holiday ever”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Hotel was amazing, the people in Malta are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Plenty to do and see if you choose to, or ideal place to relax and recharge batteries.
