Great destinations for bathing beauties, swimmers, snorkelers and divers and raging kids.


The most beautiful beach on the island is at the end of the alley between Nadur and Xaghra, hidden behind a reed forest and the dune you will find a wide, about 500 m long sandy beach of ochre colors in the sun. The water is clear and about 50 m shallow until it becomes deeper. Ideal also for children. Accordingly, it is full here in July and August. Sunbeds and parasols can be rented and two restaurants offer food and drink, inexpensive and tasty. There is a first aid station, public toilets and showers, souvenir stalls, a stand with fruit, an air-carriage and stand with bathing suits and utensils for sports and fun are not missing either. Buses 323 and 302 bring you here.

Hondoq Bay, my home beach

From the centre Qalas it goes eastward in 20 minutes down to the beach. It can also be reached by car. You will find here a restaurant that Hondoq Cafè, a food truck, The First aid station and toilets and shower houses. You can rent sun beds and parasols. Nice place to snorkel and paddle. Canoes you can rent here and also guided paddle tours e.g. after Comino are offered here.

San Blas Bay, a popular natural beach

The natural beach with fine sand is beautiful. Unfortunately there are no gastronomy and public toilets. Although the path to the bay is quite steep, many families come here. In the season there is a Jeep that carries you and your luggage up for little money.

Beaches of Marsalforn

The small sand-pebble beach on the promenade in front of the hotel Calypso is popular, has a beach guide and the ice cream parlor is a scoop! But Marsalforn offers even more. The beach at the Qbajjar Bay at the end of the bay is small and likes to be visited, especially by the residents of the nearby apartments. The restaurant of the same name is recommended. A little further at the hotels at the beginning of the salt pans is the beach of Xwejni Bay. There is a kiosk and a snack bar. Less known is the beach Gnar Qawqla. If you go past the stairs to the road behind the Calypso at the port, you will come there. A mobile kiosk supplies visitors, with umbrellas and loungers here as well.
