Croatia – Bunculuka Bay (Baska, Island of Krk)

Rating: Banculuka Bay is a sandy/pebble beach within the premises of the FKK Banculuka naturist Camp, in the island of Krk (near the town of Baska). The beach is pretty wide, offering lot of locations where to sunbathe. Although it’s rare to find yourself suffocating in a dense crowd, you still have to be prepared that you’ll definitely share this beach with other people – to get you an idea about numbers, the camping alone can accomodate more than 1000 guests. Most of these people will be naturist and hence they’ll be naked. Just be prepared for this. Water is [ ... ]

Malta Beaches – Marsalforn in Gozo

Rating: We 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. Tweet This Post

Malta Beaches – Armier Bay

Rating: This beach is very popular among locals and you can definitely opt to drive there (or take bus route 50) if you wish to blend with them and spend a day at the beach the Maltese way. It’s a quite pretty, sandy beach with clean water and a decent landscape. Facilities such as bars and restaurants are there for your needs also. It’s probably not as beautiful as other beaches in Malta, but you might want to give it a try, if you’re looking from something different. Tweet This Post

Malta Beaches – Imgiebah Bay

Rating: Imgiebah 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 [ ... ]

Malta Beaches – Xlendi in Gozo

Rating: Xlendi 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.

Rating: Ramla Tal-Qortin is a small remote sandy beach in the northern part of the island of Malta. It is neither famous, nor popular. It might be worth checking it out if you have seen all other Maltese beaches and you wish to escape from crowds, but there are much better alternatives in the island. Tweet This Post

Malta Beaches – Pretty Bay

Rating: Pretty 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. [ ... ]

Malta Beaches – Ramla Bay in Gozo

Rating: Ramla Bay (Ir-Ramla il-Ħamra in Maltese) is a sandy beach, located on the north-eastern side of Gozo, one of the three Maltese islands. Its sand features a distinctive golden-reddish tint, from which it’s inherited its name. The beach is very popular with both Maltese residents and tourists, and can be reached by either car or bus. It’s ideal for sunbathing and swimming, but it’s wide enough that some beach sport activities can be performed as well (it’s indeed suitable for families). It’s easy to be accessed (even though you have to expect to walk a little, or rely on [ ... ]
