Malta, an enchanting archipelago in the Mediterranean, is renowned for its rich history, stunning architecture, and, of course, its spectacular beaches. As guests of Cugó Gran Macina Malta, you are perfectly situated to explore some of the most breathtaking coastal gems this island has to offer. Whether you seek serene coves, family-friendly sandy shores, or vibrant spots for water sports, Malta has a beach to match every preference. Here’s our guide to the best beaches on the island of Malta: 

Golden Bay 

Golden Bay is one of Malta’s most famous beaches, and for good reason. Located on the northwest coast, this large sandy beach is ideal for families and anyone looking to relax under the sun. The clear, shallow waters are perfect for swimming and wading, making it a safe choice for children. The beach is also equipped with amenities like sunbeds, umbrellas, and beachside cafes, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable day out.  

Paradise Bay 

True to its name, Paradise Bay is a slice of paradise on Malta’s northern tip. This small, secluded beach is nestled between cliffs, offering a tranquil escape with stunning views. The azure waters are perfect for snorkeling, revealing a vibrant underwater world. Although it’s a bit off the beaten path, the serenity and beauty of Paradise Bay make it well worth the trip. 

Mellieħa Bay (Għadira Bay) 

As the largest sandy beach in Malta, Mellieħa Bay is a favorite among both locals and tourists. Situated in the charming town of Mellieħa, this beach offers a long stretch of golden sand and shallow, crystal-clear waters. The gentle slope of the seabed makes it perfect for swimming, especially for families with young children. Water sports enthusiasts will find plenty to do here, with options for jet skiing, windsurfing, and paddle boating. 

St. Peter’s Pool 

For those seeking something a bit different, St. Peter’s Pool is a natural swimming pool carved into the rocky coastline near Marsaxlokk. This unique spot is a favorite among adventurous swimmers and cliff divers. The clear, deep waters are perfect for a refreshing dip, while the surrounding flat rocks provide excellent sunbathing spots. It’s a bit more rugged and less accessible than other beaches, but its natural beauty is unparalleled. 

Għajn Tuffieħa Bay 

Just a short walk from Golden Bay, you’ll find Għajn Tuffieħa Bay, a more secluded and tranquil alternative. Accessed by a series of steps, this beach boasts stunning red sands and crystal-clear waters. The surrounding cliffs and unspoiled landscape offer breathtaking views and a sense of serenity. It’s a perfect spot for those looking to escape the crowds and enjoy nature at its finest. 

Blue Lagoon (Comino) 

While not on the main island of Malta, a trip to the Blue Lagoon on the nearby island of Comino is a must. Known for its mesmerizing turquoise waters and white sandy bottom, the Blue Lagoon is a true jewel of the Mediterranean. It’s ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and simply soaking in the sun. Regular boat trips run from Malta to Comino, making it an easy and unforgettable day trip.
