Golden Bay is a breathtaking sandy beach renowned for its natural beauty and crystal-clear azure waters. Surrounded by rugged cliffs and lush greenery, the bay offers a picturesque and serene setting for sunbathing, swimming, and beachside relaxation.
There are beach bars, cafes, and restaurants, ensuring visitors can enjoy delicious food and a refreshing drink while taking in the stunning coastal views. With its idyllic charm and natural splendour, Golden Bay is a must-visit destination for beach enthusiasts in Malta.
There's lots to see and do in and around Golden Bay and Malta itself. We've said about the beautiful beach, shopping and the waterfront, plus there's a surf school, scuba diving, horse riding and a number of spas for total relaxation.
There's a host of day trips including half or full day tours of Malta. If you want a day on the water there is a choice of day trips on various types of vessel, one of the most popular being a Turkish Gullet to Gozo with a stop off at the Blue Lagoon in Camino.
The Malta Experience is also good. It's like a cinema where you take your seat and a film tells you all about the history of Malta. It gets really interesting when your seat starts shaking and tipping backwards and forwards! Great fun. There is also a 'hop on hop off' sightseeing bus which is always worth doing, its relaxing and you get a lot of information about Malta.
You can also go parasailing where you get to see Malta from a different view!
There aren't any nightclubs in Golden Bay but there are some bars and excellent restaurants to try, all with those stunning sea views to be enjoyed as the sun sets.
There are many different events in Malta throughout the year. These include Folklore events, classical music events and recitals, parades celebrating Malta's history or the SummerDaze festival with bands and singers holding concerts across Malta in August.
There also beer festivals and a festival for arts and crafts. You name it and there's probably a festival for it in Malta!
