Swimming & Diving

Malta is also the island of sun, sea and sand…. In summer, when temperatures reach an average of 35°C, the clear, Mediterranean Sea is extremely inviting. Luckily in a small island like Malta no place is very far from the beach. Plenty of beaches are easily accessible for families and rocky inlets are ideal for sunbathing. Some beaches and rocky shores are slightly harder to reach, but worth seeking out for their seclusion and unspoilt surroundings!

The sandy shores of Birzebbuga’s Pretty Bay, Golden Bay, “Ghajn Tuffieha”, Paradise Bay, Gnejna and Mellieha Bay are sure to enchant you. Rocky beaches such as Sliema’s, Delimara (limits of Zejtun), Zurrieq and Marsascala are truly captivating. Marsalforn, Ramla l-Hamra and Xlendi rank amongst the most popular in Gozo whilst Comino’s Blue Lagoon and Santa Marija Bay are sought for their unspoilt beauty.
