Nice clean sandy beach with clear water. Only downside is if it is windy the sea can get a bit rough with big waves so not so safe for kids then. On a calm day it is beautiful.

We ventured over here from St Julians. The tour buses and Malta buses come here but it was a hot day so we chose to take a taxi.

The beach is a sandy beach with the Radisson Blu on one side of it. We went to hire sun beds from the Radisson private beach part but they were 15 euros for each sun bed or 60 euros for 4 (no discount there then!). So we went to the public beach where we got 4 sun beds and 2 large umbrellas for 22 euros.

This beach has some waves unlike the beach on the east coast that we visited. It is sandy underfoot in the sea other than the first 5-10 feet which are rocky. The sea is crystal clear once you are past the wash. It also has a lifeguard. The sand gets v hot and children will need shoes/flip flops to walk on it. There is a toilet up some stairs and just across the road. There are 2 cafés on the beach and another one at the top in the car park. We ate there (a pizza and some chips) and the food was good. We had a v enjoyable day here. It got extremely hot and you will need to either bring some sun shade or hire an umbrella otherwise you will cook!

Some rocks on the way in, but shallow for a long way out. Beach cafe good, loungers comfortable, parasols large, and the paragliding excellent. Lots of parking, some 400m away, rest closer.

Very beautiful sandy beach.The area is stunning and you can make a few walks to see the bay from above. The view is stunning. Keep in mind that the public transport is only one bus per hour and it can get full very quickly. We had to wait for another one to come, after an hor, of course.
