Located on the Western part of Malta, Golden Bay (Il-Mixquqa) is one of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Only minutes away from the town of Mgarr, you can hire sun beds and umbrellas or partake in some water sports in the sparkling blue sea — the area is great for snorkelling.
The hotel nearby, Radisson Blu Resort and Spa, has three restaurants, so that you don’t have to spend too much time away from the beach when getting some lunch. In fact, true beach bunnies don’t have to leave the sand at all — there is a restaurant on the beach itself.
Radisson Blu Resort and Spa is a luxury hotel with an indoor pool and spa as well as such close proximity to the beach; if you were planning an entire holiday to Golden Bay it would be the best place to stay.
If for some reason you became bored of one perfect beach, there is another one just over the hill!

Għajn Tuffieħa Bay often has nude sunbathers and, once at the top of the hill you have to climb to get to it, offers one of the best views in Malta.
The surrounding area of these two bays is perfect for walkers, with lots of paths to explore.
