The Best Bays and Beaches in Bugibba Malta
Bugibba is lucky to have one of Malta’s most popular and busy beach sites located towards St Paul’s Bay. Travellers staying at Primera Hotel will be happy to know their hotels are just a very short walk from the Bugibba beach Malta and the popular promenade. From early afternoon to night it’s a hive of activity for tourists and locals, usually looking to settle down for a bite to eat around sunset.
The man made perched sandy beach in Bugibba is a popular area for those beach lovers who do not want to travel away from the area to enjoy relaxing on a sandy beach. The beach is kept clean at all times and has numourous facilities - parking, toilets, watersports, bar and you can rent deckchairs and sunbeds. The beach also has good access for disabled persons including parking spaces available.
The bay itself is a rocky beach, and many people like to dine in the area and listen to the waves hitting the rocks. Local swimmers also like the bay as the rocks put some people off bathing, making it perfect for them to swim in the clear blue waters. You’ll commonly see people sitting down by the water by the main section of the promenade (near McDonalds) in the evenings.
There are a number of beaches near Bugibba. If you really want to visit a large sandy beach, Mellieha Bay is the place to go. It is the largest sandy beach on the island, as well as the most popular. We recommend it for families as there is a lifeguard on duty, toilets by the beach and the water remains shallow for roughly 40m out making it perfect for kids to paddle in. There is also a wide range of activities available and it isn’t uncommon to see people out in the water windsurfing, canoeing and water-skiing. Guests staying in db Seabank Resort & Spa and the Luna Holiday Complex will be able to make use of this beach throughout their stay.
