Ir-Ramla il-Hamra (easily accessible by car through Nadur or Xaghra) is the largest, the best and still the most unspoilt haven of the island of Gozo. The whole beach is a spread of red sand. The sea is shallow and perfect for children, except on windy days. On the right seaward, a path leads up to Taht l-Irdum where the water is deeper.

Apart from being a beautiful beach, Ramla l-Hamra is also a historic site. The Romans built a villa richly decorated with marble and stucco. So sophisticated was this building that it boasted its own hot bath supplied with water from a nearby spring, channelled to the villa. These Roman ruins now lie re-buried beneath the red sand.
