A wide range of seasonal freshly prepared dishes, soft and alcoholic drinks are waiting for visitors at the beach restaurant. You can settle in one of the hotel bungalows, behind which there is a police station.
Presence on the beach of lifeguards will allow you to safely engage in swimming, kayaking, diving or snorkeling. At any coastal kiosk, you can book a tour to see the island, which is a natural park that preserves exotic vegetation and serves as a nesting site for a rare species of petrels.
Some guests of the bay, who have previously rented a boat or a jeep, independently explore the main sightseeings of the island: bays, caves, chapels, forts and a watchtower immortalized in the movie “Count of Monte Cristo”.

When is it better to go
The swimming season in Malta lasts from late May to October. The air temperature reaches comfortable +25-30°C, and the water temperature does not fall below +23°C. In some regions of the Maltese archipelago, the water warms up to +26-28°C. In summer, dry, sunny and calm weather prevails. Precipitation is rare. The southern coast of Malta is often influenced by the dry desert winds of Africa, raising high waves and bringing the sultry breath of the Sahara to the islands.
