What are the best beaches in Malta?

Malta’s rugged coastline isn’t short of a beach or two, so you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding the perfect backdrop for your seafront sunbathe.

Some of the popular Blue Flag bays are ideal if you’re travelling with kids, like Golden Bay with its weekend barbecues and beach huts selling ice creams, and Mellieha Bay with its watersports and shallow shores that stay warm even out of season. If you’re more of a swimmer than a sunbather, then Blue Lagoon should be at the top of your list. You’ll find this iconic swim spot on the remote island of Comino, and if you’re wondering just how remote it is, then this might put it into perspective - there are only five permanent residents there! However, the turquoise waters and rocky caves attract flocks of tourists all year round, so hop on a boat or a ferry and bring your camera along for the ride.

Prefer something a little quieter? St Peter’s Pool is a natural, rocky swimming pool tucked away along the Delimara Peninsula. It’s not quite as easy to reach as your standard bucket-and-spade beaches, and you won’t find any food and drink outlets nearby, but if you’re looking for a hidden gem where you can laze in peace, then this is the perfect spot to bring a picnic.

What are the top hotels in Malta?

From high-end resorts to simple accommodation blocks, Malta has a hotel to suit every taste. Why not go all out with a loud-and-proud resort like Hotel Phoenicia, with plenty of restaurants and a gorgeous setting amongst seven acres of gardens? The five-star AX The Palace is sure to tick all your boxes if a rooftop swimming pool overlooking an urban cityscape floats your boat, and Seashells Resort at Suncrest won’t disappoint with its seafront location, sprawling swimming pool and modern design. Looking for a dreamy escape that won’t break the bank? Go sweet and simple with Luna Holiday Complex. This quaint hotel is budget-friendly without scrimping on facilities. Who said you had to pay above and beyond for a rooftop swimming pool, an on-site games room and a gym?
