Golden Bay has the facilities you need for the day – a cafe-restaurant, sun lounger and umbrella hire, and plenty of fun water sports from jet skiing, canoeing, and paragliding to banana boat rides.
The spectacular sunsets here have made the beach a popular spot for evening barbecues.
The beach is generally safe for swimming but it is prone to strong waves and rip currents when the wind is to the northwest.
Golden Bay is one of Malta’s most popular sandy beaches and the location of the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, one of the best 5-star resorts in Malta. Despite this accolade, it is set in the countryside and is relatively undeveloped. The bay also forms part of Il-Majjistral Nature and History Park and a Natura 2000 site.
The beach has quite easy access making Golden Bay suitable for the less mobile or those with small children. Unfortunately, there are still some steps to go down on the beach. However, one can access the coastline also from the hotel’s outdoor restaurant that takes you into the rocky part of the beach.
Beach management is operated by the Malta Tourism Authority from 15th June to 15th September. Lifeguards and other beach staff are present daily during this period. A red flag indicates when bathing should be limited to shallow waters only.
