    Nice beach, but busy on the weekends
    Nice beach and crystal clear water. We've been there for swimming on the weekend, therefore it was really crowded. In the evening hours it got less crowded. We hiked up the hill to see the sunset. All in all we had a nice time and would go there again.

    Beautiful place for a lovely sunset experience
    We went to this place for sunset and had a great experience. Place was crowded when we went. Water itself was very shallow and we could see people walking far inside. Parking lot was full and we went back, took first left and in around 200 feet, large parking facilities are there. Charges of a paid parking lot that we parked is not that costly. Public transport seems too crowded when we passed the bus stand. There is also a swing overlooking the sea and that was more for a photo-op. Definitely would recommnd.

    Gorgeous spot
    This beach is secluded, gorgeous, and protected from the wind. There is a restaurant right on the water here too (only one do it had an hour wait for lunch before summer really began). You do have to walk down 140 stairs to get to the beach but they are pretty wide and flat. I did it slowly with a bum knee. There are also chair rentals from the restaurant.

    Great sandy beach for kids
    Great sandy beach, my family had a lot of fun. Not a large area, so make sure to arrive in the AM. Beach beds and umbrellas are available for rent (8 EUR each), restroom available in restaurant

We visited the area at the beginning of January on a sunny day, and there were very few people there, which just added magic to the whole experience. I imagine this place to be packed in summer, the beach is sandy and it's such a beautiful spot. The clay slopes provide a dramatic contrast to the blue sea below. It's worth walking all the way around the large 'rock' overlooking the sea. We walked around this and then down to the beach. We spent some time on the beach and then walked back up towards the tower. It is so beautiful here, the views are breath-taking and it's just absolutely worth visiting, especially on a cold, sunny day if you like hiking or on a warm, sunny day if you like swimming. Next time we'll go back with a kayak so we can explore the caves around the area.

Great beach, sandy and shallow. Can be a little crowded in August but mostly at weekends. Many steps down from top to beach so keeps you fit going back up. Excellent snorkelling and swimming.

Everything about this beach is absolutely stunning. I suggest you park/arrive as if you were going to the Golden bay. Then take the road on your left from the bus stops, walk a bit and turn right. You'll walk through some a hill that overlooks the golden beach for some cool photos, and eventually end up in from of the stairs that goes down to ghian tuffehia beach. The views from there are magical. The Bay seems to be windier than golden Bay. The water is crystal clear, shallow water for a long tract but still very swimmable. The sea here seems to be naturally a bit agitated, but in a pleasant way. The waves were similar to those artifical waves you have in those water play parks, people, both kids and adults were enjoying the game mother nature was offering. And all around a beautiful Mediterranean landscape and a tower with a Maltese flag. Unforgettable. There is a restaurant overlooking the beach, good food I must say but pretty expensive.

IT used to be one of the best beaches in Malta, probably the best place. But from this year is completely lost. It is full of rubbish, litter and other stuff. It has completely devastated by night parties, people camping everywhere and leaving all the rubbish on the sands without cleaning. Also, the water is much worse being not any more clear and pure like before.

lovely walk from Gnejna Bay, over to Ghajn Tuffieha Bay and a walk around the peninsula and then onto Golden Bay. Beautiful views and a great walk finishing with coffee and cake. As is was Feburaury the bus dropped off at Mgarr and I had to walk down to Gneja Bay which is along walk down. The 101 bus doesn't run down to the bay in winter. You then go to the bus stop in the bay, go over the small wall and then up the path up the cliff to the next bay. The path is very visible so you can't get lost once you are on it. I'd recommend doing it this way and not the other way. The walk back up to Mgarr wouldn't be pleasant. Buses are running regularly to Golden Bay.

I loved visiting this place! We walked up the hill and up to the big rock at the top. The views and landform are just incredible and it was worth going just for the views! It was very humid so we got very sweaty but it was worth it. We didn’t go to the beaches as we just wanted to see what they were like however as it was a Sunday the beaches were very busy. Best to avoid the beaches on the weekend. A great walk with incredible views - definitely recommend!!

It’s probably one of the most beautiful beach I’ve seen since a while... There’s not a lot of people and it’s surrender by nature. The sand is pretty and the water is so transparent! U can walk around the place for discovering more attractive views. There’s a lot of stairs for going down but that’s not an issue normally. Go ahead there without any worries !
