The beautiful beach in Mellieha Bay is the
longest sandy beach in Malta.
The beach slopes gently into the crystal
clear water offering safe conditions for
children and less confident swimmers.
Beach facilities include sun-beds, umbrellas,
toilets and life guards. Parking is possible
in the streets behind the beach.

the beach can become rather crowded,
especially in July and August.
The fine sand and the shallow water make the
beach ideal for children.
A variety of water sports are available,
including paragliding, banana boating, water
skiing, pedalos and even scuba-diving.
There are several restaurants and cafés
