Discover all of Malta’s beaches

Whether you prefer rocky or sandy beaches, one of Malta’s highlights during summer is the beautiful opportunity of having the beach in close vicinity to everywhere! If you’re staying at one of our properties in Qawra, there are a number of rocky beaches close by in Bugibba, St Paul’s Bay and Qawra.

Watch the sunset

Sunsets in Malta are glorious. If you’re spending a day by the beach, you can simply settle down with a beer or a bottle of wine and witness the island’s beauty in the dim evening from the comfort of your towel. Top sunset locations include Dingli Cliffs and the Mellieha area.

Go to a festa celebration

There’s almost a festa celebration happening every summer weekend in Malta. Enjoy the perfect summer night with a fireworks display, celebratory bands and food from local food trucks. It’s the ultimate summer night on the island!
