Malta Airport to Island Residence Club at Radisson Blu

Island Residence Club at Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Golden Sands

Golden Bay, Malta

Any advice would be helpful. Can you help with the best way of getting from the airport to Golden Bay.

Family of four travelling, would be happy to use local transport or hire care. Want to keep cost down, so any advice would be helpful. Hotel said they have a taxi deal for 50 euros, (niormally 80 euros) otherwise a bus to Valetta and change.

Many thanks.

The hotel is correct about travelling via Valletta if using the public bus service - that would take about 90 minutes and cost you around €10 (there are other ways but travelling via Valletta is by far the simplist if you are travelling by bus during the daytime).

For other options, if you look at the "Top questions about MALTA" box on the top right hand side of this page, there is a FAQ called "How can I get from Malta Airport to my hotel" which will give you some alternative choices.

I should perhaps add that buses (X4, X5 and X7) run every 15 minutes from the Airport to Valletta, but during the winter the bus from there to Golden Bay (44) only runs once per hour (see http://www.arriva.com.mt/FileBackend.ashx?f=2206), so you could have a longish wait at Valletta bus station.

Further details of the public transport service in Malta (including a list of bus routes from Golden Bay) can be found here: tripadvisor.com/Travel-g190311-c109681/Malta…

The official taxi rate to Golden Bay from the airport is €25 not €40.
