Didn't appreciate some of the dog faeces on the pavement. Sandy grey beach but water is so clear and refreshing.

Large shallow bay is sheltered and perfect for kids to play safely in sea, they can walk quite far out in bay and water still only at their waists. Perfect for learner snorkerers too. Sea is crystal clear.

The beach is clean and sandy and the sea is clear and not too deep to begin with.As long as you have the weather to go with it, it's a great day out.The bus service is quite good at about 30mins to most places.Probably this and Golden bay the best in Malta.

We visited in April and enjoyed our hours there. It was very quiet and we enjoyed a nice stroll along the beach.

Locals call it Ghadira Bay, pronounced "A-Dear-Ah" and has a wonderful family feel with tourists and locals, very family friendly and places to eat nearby

This Beach is excellent if traveling with young children. In both ends of the beach you'll find cafe's offering drinks and light dishes. Sun beds and umbrellas can be rented at reasonable prices. Great place

The water was amazing. Eventhough it was a lot of people we really enjoyed our day, the view from the beach to the sea is amazing and the colour of the water is amazing and so beautiful. It is also close to the bus station
