Quite naturally, the one major attraction which makes the Maltese islands unique is the sea. It’s not only the crystal clear waters and the beautiful beaches, but the easy access to these areas and particular geology that makes every beach in Malta simply unique.
In a previous article, we have explored some of Malta’s top beaches and all the things you need to know, most prominently, on how to get there. In this piece, we will be exploring Golden Bay in detail, as it is one of the local hotspots for tourists and locals alike.
Where is Golden Bay located?
Golden Bay sits between two charming villages with Manikata on one side and Mgarr on the other. It’s located on the northern side of the island. The beach is on the Northwest coast side, to be exact. The area has two equally magnificent beaches separated by a small rocky hillside. On one side there’s Golden Bay, the one which is most easily accessible and has a sizeable hotel sitting right next to it. The other one is Ghajn Tuffieha (Apple’s Eye) which is quieter, slightly smaller in size but perhaps a bit more secluded and in touch with nature.
