We thought that Ramla would be packed as it was a beautiful day on which we went but, while busy, was quite calm. Very helpful guys sorted out the loungers and brollies and the food at the café was delicious. The red sand is definitely...More

Particular sandy beach. The first part is quite pebbly so better walk in further for pure sany area. The sea level is low so one walks in and sea keeps on being low to one knees. Take care of under water currents. Play safe.

I love this Bay with its red-orange sand from which it gets its name (red=hamra). It's got a boardwalk to take you to the front end of the beach, a lovely statue which adds a traditional island feel, a clay area and more. You can...More

Easy free parking. Excellent food at Rosie's restaurant. Water is clear and warm. Some areas the entry to water is rocky so shoes recommended. Lifeguards present whenever we have visited. Buoyed areas for swimming. Can't fault it.

I went to this Bay with friends. A couple had 2 small children. The sun beds and parasols were 5 euros each for the whole day. The guys carry them to where you want so would advise finding a pitch first. It does get busy...More

Ramla has completely lost its charm. Visited two days ago, it was overcrowded, dirty and smelly. Faint unpleasant odour pervaded the beach. Had to wade through rubbish to get to clear waters and then thought I would lie on my towel on the beach to...More

We had a great few hours on this beach. Plenty of space for everyone and good facilities - parking, umbrellas, toilets, showers, food and drink, etc. The sand is nice and as you see in photos is actually red. It's one of those beaches where...More

Not directly. All buses run through the city of Victoria (Rabat), so you would need to get a bus from Mgarr (Imgarr) to Victoria and then a bus from there to Ramla. It doesn't take long though, what with the Island being so... More
