Rocky & Sandy Beaches in Malta
The clear blue sea is Malta’s undisputed
Since Malta is a small island,
no place is distant from both sandy and rocky bays and beaches.
Almost in all beaches one can hire deckchairs,
beach umbrellas or water sports equipment in order to practice
water sports such as windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving and jet skiing.
For those who are more adventurous, there is nothing better than diving!
It is well known that Maltese waters are enchanting!
Well-known places include Zurrieq, Ghar Lapsi or Cirkewwa.
Gozo is one of the few remaining Mediterranean islands still totally unspoilt.
It is a haven for divers from all over the world.
The warm crystal clear waters ensure near perfect diving conditions
to enjoy the drop offs, caves, tunnels,
grottos and spectacular scenery for which Gozo is renowned.

Malta, Gozo and Comino have many beautiful beaches all around the coast of the islands. Apart from the popular beaches there are also a multitude of deserted coves and little beaches sometimes only accessible by sea.
Although some of the beaches are small, some are rated as the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean.
The swimming and sunbathing season starts in April when the weather becomes much warmer where temperatures can reach around 28oC to 35oC and gradually cools down until end October.
The most popular sandy beaches are the neighboring beaches of Ghajn Tuffieha and Golden Bay in Malta , and Ramla beach in Gozo.
All are in a superb setting surrounded by superb , dramatic setting of flat -topped , golden and brown rocky
cliffs and both have excellent stretches of fine sand.
Malta's sandy beaches are mainly to the north while the most suitable stretches of flat white rocks are along the western side of the island where the major resort areas are. The eastern coastline consists mainly of sheer cliffs, although it is possible to swim in a modest manner at iether wied iz-Zurrieq near Zurrieq or Ghar Lapsi near Siggiewi, both of which are popular with Scuba diving groups who explore the rugged coastline.
Both Malta and Gozo are small and it may appear as if everywhere is within walking distance. It is not- and certainly never in the heat of the day. Although bus routes are simple to master, getting around by car is easier, espescially in reaching the beaches.
Beach activities range from simply lazing in the sun, to scuba diving, snorkeling , sailing , windsurfing, jet sking, water-skiing, beach volley, etc.!
