Malta Beaches – Marsalforn in Gozo

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Marsalforn in GozoWe can’t really talk about a beach here, but rather about the sandy coastline of the seaside town of Marsalforn in Gozo. Although not too dirty, this beach isn’t something to talk about, so you might want to stop for a quick refreshment in the sea if you’re passing by. Definitely you have much better alternatives in Gozo if you’re there for the day.

Malta Beaches – White Tower Bay (Little Armier)

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

white Tower Bay, also called Little Armier is a white sand beach located on the north eastern part of the island of Malta. It is overlooked by the White Tower from which it inherits its name. Water is clean and crystal clear and the beach itself is quite pretty, definitely secluded. It’d be a great place to spend the day if not for the algae, the motor boats and the rubbish lying around. It’s still a good place to choose when you want to escape from crowds, but you definitely have better alternatives, so our suggestion is to keep it as an alternative when you’ve already explored the best beaches. Nevertheless it’s very easy to reach it, whereas other secluded beaches have much more difficult paths taking you there. So you could pick it as your destination if you don’t feel like you want to wast time searching for a place or you need easy access to the sea.

Malta Beaches – Imgiebah Bay

Rating: ★★★★☆

Imgiebah - SelmunImgiebah Bay is a sandy, remote and secluded beach in the north-eastern part of Malta. Water is crystal clear, the environment is usually pristine and very quiet, since very few people usually hang around here. There are no facilities around and the road taking you there is pretty rough (and relatively long), so you might want to prepare yourself before getting into that. Once you get there, you most likely realize it was worth the effort, since you find yourself surrounded by beautiful natural elements, both on the ground and under water; this beach is in fact also good for snorkeling. Just be sure to bring some water supplies and refreshments with you, since you’ll most likely need them. Since there’s no lifeguard on duty, please also pay attention to sea conditions. It’s usually not dangerous, but if it gets too crispy for your taste or you feel some activity, it might be wise to just get out of water.

Malta Beaches – Xlendi in Gozo

Rating: ★★★½☆

Xlendi Bay in GozoXlendi is a popular bay in Gozo. It has a small sandy beach and a rocky coastline where locals and tourists alike sunbathe in front of the seafront. Water is pretty clean and so is the environment overall. There are bars, restaurants and all of the facilities you might need and expect from a seaside town. Although it’s a cool place to spend the day if you’re vacationing in Gozo, you probably still have better choices (IE Azure Window, Ramla Bay, San Blas), if your time on the island is limited.

Malta Beaches – Pretty Bay

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Pretty Bay in BirzebuggaPretty Bay’s the only sandy beach in the southern part of the island of Malta. Although it’s probably not worth to reach Birzebbugia (or B’Bugia as it’s usually called in Malta) just to visit it, it might well be a cool place where to chill out for a few hours if you find yourself in the southern tip of the island. Actually, the beach wouldn’t be bad at all, with some fine white sand, a few palms and lot of facilities around. What definitely ruins the environment are the heavy duty harbour facilities you’re facing while at the beach. Really not your beach dream landscape; but again, it’s not a terrible beach and can definitely offer you a chance to dip into the water if you find yourself in the souther part of the island.
