Now that summer is fast approaching, every single citizen under the sun continues their never-ending search for their ideal summer hotspot. The pursuit of the perfect beach is a yearly effort and finding the right ratio of space, cleanliness, quiet & Instagrammability may seem like a daunting task but never fear; Heineken and Malta Daily are here to bring you a list of 5 Maltese beaches you NEED to visit this summer!
An immediate must-visit for beach-lovers from all walks of life. Located in Malta’s north-western coast, Riviera Bay is one of the island’s most beautiful beaches. A jaw-dropping sight to see no matter how many times you’ve visited, this bay’s crystal clear waters and golden-reddish sand are a testament to Malta’s untapped Mediterranean beauty and whether you’re looking for a place to swim or an ideal sunbathing location, this place is absolutely gorgeous.
Located right next to Riviera Bay, Golden Bay is a more tourist-friendly beach. The bay’s easy access, neighbouring restaurants and large stretch of sand make it a popular pick for swimmers, sunbathers, watersport fanatics and even partygoers. The super-aesthetic summer location is also gorgeous backdrop for BBQs and, when accompanied by a cold can of Heineken Silver, no BBQ tastes better.
St. George’s Bay
A neighbour to Malta’s nightlife capital of Paceville, if you’re looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place. This bustling beach in St. Julian’s is a popular choice amongst tourists looking to relax and socialise before taking a look at what Malta’s nightlife scene has to offer. St. George’s Bay lays dormant prior to the summer months but when the season finally comes around, crack open a couple of cold ones and get ready for the best summer ever!
Many believe that this is Malta’s finest beach and to be perfectly honest, we can’t argue with that logic. Typically visited by locals rather than tourists. Gnejna Bay offers red sands as well as flat rocks and while no beach is ever purely peaceful, if you’re lucky, you may end up visiting on one of the quieter days. So get your headphones ready, sunglasses at bay and packs of Heineken Silver in the cooler and enjoy some of Malta’s much sought-after summer serenity.
Whichever beach you ultimately decide on visiting this summer, make sure you don’t forget the essentials. Sunblock, sunglasses, snacks and an ice cold case (or two) of Heineken Silver should have you and your squad sorted for this year’s beach season.
A rather central choice found in the heart of one of Malta’s most popular touristic hotspots, Sliema’s Fond Ghadir is a great choice if you plan on doing a bit of everything before your day is over. With a rocky coastline which stretches all the way to St. Julian’s, this beachside location is surrounded by a vast array of shops, cafés and restaurants – so your pre- and post-beach activities are definitely sorted.
