impressive view on the cliffs, red sand right next to the more famous golden bay. probably less crowded in summer than the golden bay, but really small just as every "beach" in malta

Easily the best beach on the island secluded Sandy and are you small haven for some worshippers the car park attendant despite being enthusiastic makes it clear that payments are only in the form of donations so you don't have to pay if you don't want to pay well worth a visit

Definitely worth a visit if around Mgarr/Paradise bay as its very quaint and popular with more local residents. We visited in the day and also one evening for sun set. Has access to toilets and a couple of cafes which are good value.

Well organised with a snack bar, ice creams, sunbed hire and toilets. A place usually used by locals especially at the weekend. A gem as there are few beaches on the island. Accessible by car and local bus, I wouldn't advise trying to walk there as the hill down is okay but very very steep going back up.

We were very sceptical about visiting Gnejna Bay after reading very mixed reviews. However, going to this bay was the best decision we made! The beach is very quiet and offers hot/ cold food, water sports (hiring boats, water skiing/ wake boarding and banana boats etc) and deck chairs all at affordable prices! The beach is sandy and there is... More

This beach is far from all resorts and hotels. The beach is therefore quiet, without a lot of tourists here rather meet locals. There is administration of relatively large parking , two kiosks with snacks and water attractions. Showers are charged and available only when there is service. The beach is both sandy and rocky Pláž je daleko od všech... More

This is a lovely little beach. It is not as touristy as some of the other beaches a lot of the people there seem to be locals. Over summer there is a bus that runs straight to the beach. It leaves the beach on the hour every hour as well so bear that in mind when you are planning on... More

lovely small beach , easy access from carpark and lovely flat rocks to jump into the fresh deep sea, unfortunately most of the sea from the sandy beach is so stoney and not just until you get in the sea, I mean all the way out so much so that you cannot get into the sea, a small section past...

We really enjoyed this little beach. It was not too touristic and the water and beach was nice. This was a perfect place to spend a couple of hours.
