Golden Bay is a beautiful sandy beach set within a cliff face in North West Malta and is the first and most popular sandy beach in Malta together in a chain of beaches together with Ghajn Tuffieha and Gnejna. Golden Bay is located along unspoiled and undeveloped countryside and the sand at Golden Bay is light cream colour with fine clean corns. The blue sea and the cliffs surrounding the bay provide excellent snorkelling. Golden Bay has a large beach, beautiful waters and facilities, making it the second popular beach in Malta after Mellieha Bay.
Golden Bay is also a favourite spot for beach barbeques and parties, complete with one of the most spectacular sunsets in Malta, which only increases the popularity of this crowded beach. Still, the large width and depth to the beach leaves plenty of space for everyone and even provides comfortable space for all the beach sport activities going on. Radisson Golden Sands Hotel stands grandly and dominating on the cliff-top and provides fine dining facilities. When the red flag is signalled bathing is limited to shallow waters due to underwater currents from the North West winds.
