"Golden Bay" Malta Things to Do Tip by iwys

Malta Things to Do: 753 reviews and 1,109 photos

Golden Bay is one of the few sandy beaches on Malta and consequently can get crowded, although it is nowhere near as built up as the resorts on the north-east coast of the island. In fact, the only big hotel here is the five-star Radisson SAS Golden Sands Resort.

The beach scenes in the film Troy were filmed here.

Directions: Golden Bay is on the north-west coast of Malta. Take bus no. 47 from Valletta or 652 from Sliema and Bugibba.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
