Ghajn Tuffieha and Golden Bay: Two of the most scenic attractions in Malta!
Quite dramatic, with its clay slopes and cliffs, Ghajn Tuffieha Bay is accessed via a flight of stairs from the car park.
A watch-tower built in the 17th century overlooks the bay. Yes, in Malta you cannot escape history – not even on a beach!
The bay is a popular spot for the local image-conscious crowd, so be prepared to see plenty of designer swimsuits and sunglasses.
A multi-storey hotel dominates the bay from its cliff-top perch.
A road and car park reach down to the beach, making access to Golden Bay much easier than that of her twin beach Ghajn Tuffieha.
This often results in making Golden Bay much more crowded than Ghajn Tuffieha Bay in summer.
The bay is in fact the most frequented Maltese beach after Mellieha Bay. Golden Bay or Golden Sands as it’s sometimes called, is also a favourite spot for bbq parties during the hot summer nights.
If you’re visiting in Spring or early Autumn, don’t miss the opportunity of taking a stroll across the bay and take in the natural beauty of this awesome bay.
Both bays have great facilities such as snack bars, umbrellas, loungers as well as watersport activities.
Golden Bay and Ghajn Tuffieha Bay are two of the most popular attractions in Malta, when it comes to sandy beaches. So make sure you get to include them in your photos of Malta.
You really MUST experience these two beautiful sandy beaches during your Malta vacations!
Many bus routes serve these two fantastic beaches. Go to www.arriva.com.mt to learn which one is the best to take, depending on where you're departing from.
Sometimes, when the north west wind is blowing at a certain force, strong currents occur in the deeper parts of these two bays. A red flag is hoisted on the tower as a warning that bathing on those days should be limited to the shallow waters only.
Please take note of this and do not go swimming in the deep waters during these days, even if you are a good swimmer. Stay safe!
The Radisson Blu Resort and Spa is located on the edge of a cliff, overlooking Golden Bay. The bay is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches on the island!
Boasting top notch facilities and amenities, the Radisson Blu is just a short drive away from St. Paul's Bay and Bugibba and yet is quite isolated. Perfect if you want to stay away from busy resorts and simply savor the fantastic sea and countryside views.
