The islands of Malta and Gozo have a number of beaches perfect for sunbathing, snorkelling and swimming. The most popular tend to be sandy beaches, especially if you have children, but there are also places where you can go swimming off the rocks and can sometimes be even better than sandy beaches.

In Malta, many of the beaches can become pretty busy in summer, especially on the weekends. If you are looking for a more private beach you will have to do a little exploring. One of Malta’s largest sandy beaches is Ghadira Bay this must be one of the best beaches in the whole of the Mediterranean. Ghadira Bay in Mellieha is very accessible, and has just a few steps and a ramped access down to the sand.

It can get a little crowded especially during the months of June to September on the weekends. There are some very good facilities for bathers including snack bars and cafes. There are also water sports facilities where you can hire a pedal boat, try parasailing or swim out to a large floating play area. It is very popular with families and there are many sun beds and umbrellas available for rent.
