#4 of 15 in Beaches in Island of Malta
Located on the Northwestern coast in a secluded cove, Golden Sands Beach provides a place to take in the sun or go for a leisurely swim. The beach is accessible via car or public bus, and is ideal for both sunbathing and in-water activities. Walk along the cliffs for views of the turquoise water, or go for a swim in the warm sea, which is calm enough for all ages. Snorkel around the rocks for clear views of the local marine life. You'll be able to rent lounge chairs and umbrellas. Take a horseback ride along the coast at the riding school nearby; note that you'll need to book this in advance. The beach offers a restaurant and snack bar. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Golden Sands Beach by using our St. Paul's Bay day trip planning website .

  • This beach is highly recommended everywhere and therefore we have also gone by ourselves. Unfortunately this did disappoint a little.. This is indeed one of the few beaches with sand, but one of the direst we have encountered in those 2 weeks. Cigarette butts everywhere, which is not so pleasant to lie in between. Without a parasol you should not go there, but you do have a lot of umbrellas that you can rent for €4 (or you will take one).

  • Reading the reviews I did not trust and I chose the same to come to this beach and there are at this time ... The water can not be seen,green color. I was very disappointed as it is described as the most beautiful beach so I fully agree with the reviews, the seaweed sticks to the hands, arms everywhere. I recommend going to the beach next door (ghajn tuffieha) much nicer always sandy beach and clean and crystal clear water.
