Beach

Golden Bay is popular with tourists and locals alike.

Golden Bay is not only Malta's second biggest sandy beach, it is also one of the most popular. Despite, or maybe because of its secluded location, tourists and locals alike come here every summer to enjoy the seaside. Nevertheless, the widespread beach has still kept some of its natural charm.

Thanks to its size, the bay is a great place for various types of holiday-makers to come together without getting in each other's way. Families with children will appreciate the flat acces to the sea, but recovering party-goers as well as sun worshippers looking for a chill day at the beach feel just as at home here. Golden Bay is also known for its beautiful sun sets. Hence, it is a popular location for barbecues and beach parties.

If you want to get moving, Golden Bay features a great variety of watersports. From boat rental and diving classes to surfing, jet ski, or paragliding, there is something for everyone. Looking for some peace and quiet? Only a few minutes' walk away you can find Għajn Tuffieħa, a considerably smaller and virtually untouched bay that is definitely worth a visit.

How to get there

Golden Bay is located outside of the surrounding towns in Malta's north west. If you have access to a car, the easiest way to drive is by letting your GPS lead you to the only hotel by the bay, Radisson Blu Golden Sands. Two public car parks are available by the beach.

Another option is to go to Golden Bay on public transport:

  • from Valletta: bus line 42 or 250 to St. Paul's Bay, where you change onto line 223 or 225 (approx. 1 hour); or line 44 directly to Golden Bay
  • from Sliema and St. Julian's: line 225 (approx. 1 hour) directly to Golden Bay
  • from Buġibba, Qawra, and St. Paul's Bay: line 223 or 225 (less than half an hour) directly to Golden Bay
  • from Mellieha: line 101 takes you to Golden Bay within a few minutes

Some busses only go once an hour. Busses get very full, especially in the evening, so leaving a bit early can be a good call.
