Beach Holidays in Malta & Gozo

Malta might be one of the world’s smallest countries with an area of only 316km2, but what Malta lacks in landmass it makes up for with azure water, ideal snorkelling locations, water sports and activities on a wide array of beaches, and a multitude of rocky inlets just waiting to be explored.

Whether it's Malta, Gozo or just beach info in general, check out some of the beach options below.

Gozo Beaches
Gozo is much smaller and more remote than Malta, but offers the visitor to the island splendid views, rich countryside, and sheltered bays and beaches waiting to be enjoyed. In spite of its small size, Gozo has quite a variety of beaches ranging from popular sandy beaches to hidden coves and secluded inlets. Since it is quite cut off from Malta and only reachable by ferry, the beaches on Gozo tend to be less overcrowded than beaches on Malta, but still draw large numbers of tourists and locals on summer weekends.

Beaches in Malta
The small size of Malta means that wherever you are on the island, you are never far from the next swimming spot. The southwest facing side of Malta is where the majority of sandy beaches are found, whereas the northeast facing side is largely constituted of rocky coastline, which is nevertheless a favourite area among beach-goers and sun worshippers.
