- St Peters Pool
Located in the south-west of Malta, this unique naturally formed swimming pool is a must-see for everyone. The flat rock surface above the pool makes for the perfect location to sunbathe. A ladder will allow you access to the warm waters, but if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous you can also dive into the clear blue sea beneath.
- Ghajn Tuffieha
This beautiful beach, also known as Riviera, is located in the north-west of Malta in an unspoilt setting far away from any built up areas. It is only accessible via a large flight of stairs, but the view overlooking the bay as you begin to descend really is something to behold. The quiet, relaxing atmosphere makes Ghajn Tuffieha a very popular spot to experience the most beautiful sunsets that Malta has to offer.
- San Blas Bay
If you’re looking for a very peaceful trip to the beach, then San Blas Bay in Gozo is the place for you. What makes this beach so quiet is the fact that the road leading down is closed to traffic due to how steep it is. This means you need to descend and ascend the climb on foot. It’s worth the effort though as this unspoilt sandy beach in Gozo provides a lot of natural beauty. The rocks around the beach make for fantastic snorkeling spots too.
- Ramla l-Hamra Bay
Translated to English this means “Red Beach”, a fitting name due to the beautiful orange red sand found here. Ramla Bay is the largest sandy beach in Gozo, and arguably one of the most beautiful on the islands. Enclosed on either side by protruding cliffs, the views from the beach are a wonder to behold. High up on the western cliffs you’ll be able to see Calypso Cave. If you’re feeling up for a hike this a great location to view Ramla Bay in its entirety.
- Golden Bay
A broad, golden sandy beach on the edge of Mellieħa. It is one of Malta’s most popular beaches with lots of inlets and coves to explore. The beach can get fairly busy during peak time in summer, but during the summer months lifeguards patrol the beach and there is a system of flags which say where it is safe to swim.
