Malta Highlights Part 2

The most beautiful beaches in Malta

 

1.Paradise Bay

Particularly beautiful in April and May because it is simply not that crowded at the beach. Paradise bay is a beautiful little beach where you can get some great food at the Lido beach restaurant. Absolutely my favorite beach.

2. St. Peters Pool

St.Peters Pool ss not really a proper beach if you relate sand to beaches hence it is probably more of a bay. Instead of sand you have some small cliffs which are very suitable for jumping into the cristal clear water. St.Peters Pool is located near Marsaxlokk behind the power plant.

3.Ghan Tuffieha

Lies on the opposite side of Golden bay but it is simply a little more quite and more beautiful than its bigger brother in my opinion. A few meters further is also the Gnejna Bay to be found.

4.Golden Bay

The biggest sandy beach on Malta and often visited by plenty of tourists. A good offer of water sports activities like snorkeling, parasailing and more.

5.Mellieha Bay

As the name already indicates, this beach is located in the city of Mellieha. The beach is very nice and water usually very clear. For people that don’t have a car it can be a little tricky to get home during the summer months. Busses coming from the Gozo ferry tend to be packed and to just pass by without even stopping.

6. Armier Bay

Is a very tiny beach close to Cirkewwa.

Cities you need to visit

Once in Malta one should not miss out on strolling through the following cities:

Valletta: Here you can enjoy a ice walk through the old medieval alleys and enjoy a Cappuccino in one of the many Cafés. At the Upper Baraca garden you have a great view over the Valetta harbor and the Three Cities Vittoriosa, Senglea & Cospicua. I also suggest checking out the Waterfront of Valetta. Here you can find some nice bars and restaurants and you are most likely not to run in as many tourists as in Sliema or St.Juliens. The ambience in front of the medieval scenery is really stunning.

Mdina: Mdina is an amazing medieval city that is particularly beautiful by night. From the city wall you can have a great view over Malta. Here you can also find Fotanella Maltas most favorite place for cake. I can also recommend dinner at Baccus a small restaurant within Mdina.

Marsaxlokk: The particular about Marsaxlokk ist he fish market. Every Sunday you can get fresh fish for a good price. But also other things are being sold on the market like vegetables, fruits and clothes. Who doesn’t want to prepare fish by himself should head to the Tartarun Fish Restaurant or the family restaurant Ir-Rizzu in order to get a dose of delicious seafood.

 

Apart from the above if you have enough time you should visit the following sights::

Lower and Upper Baracca Garden (Valletta)

Hasting Garden (Valletta)

San Antons Garden (Attard)

St Paul`s cathedral (Valletta)

Gozo: Rent a farmhouse and spent some relaxing time on this very laid back island

Comino: Comino is considered one of the main attractions in Malta due to its turquoise water. But form me it was never more than a small rock packed with tourists

Argotti Botanical Gardens (Floriana)
