The Western Coast of Malta is famous for its three most popular sandy beaches – Golden Bay, Gnejna Bay, and Ghajn Tuffieha Bay. Golden Bay is the biggest, the most popular and the most crowded of all. Despite the abundance of visitors, the beach is very clean and well-conditioned. It provides a lot of facilities for the tourists to feel at ease.

Golden Bay is surrounded by picturesque steep cliffs providing exciting landscapes. You can raise there in order to enjoy fascinating marine panorama, to see Ghajn Tuffieha Bay from the other side. An ancient watchtower is located in the top of the cliffs. The entrance there is also opened, so the visitors can visit it and to feel atmosphere of remote times. On the top of the cliffs there is alley of young olive trees that got their names in honor of great personalities of the modern world.

The beach is well-conditioned with free toilets and trash cans, so it is very easy to maintain its cleanness. The rent of deckchairs and umbrellas is available. There are lots of kiosks where you can buy a snack and some small souvenirs and a small café with tasty food and cozy interior. Besides, you can practice different water sports, to rent a scooter or banana boat.

There is a parking and a bus stop near the beach so you will have no problems while coming to it.
