Back in the 1980's, 90's and early 2000's this was a perfect place to spend a day, beautiful red sand and stunning clear sea. True, the sand would sometimes be gone one year but often would be back the next summer/ autumn before the winter storms washed it away. Nowadays, the sand has almost completely gone and the challenging walk down the dreaded hill (or worse, back up!) is no longer worthwhile. Sad because the little beachfront cafe is absolutely brilliant.

The sandy beach is gone , no longer exists ...only rocks ..it was swept away years ago & advertising is misleading. I discovered this when I walked all the way down & a huge hike back up steep hill in the heat.

What a waste of a day. no beach just rocks. Thank goodness for the little restaurant because you can purchase water after your hike down the VERY steep road, which at some places can be slippery. The hike back is horrible so you will need water for that journey. A previous comment said you can purchase a ride up and down the narrow road, that is not available. There are other nice beaches on Gozo.

I went today and it was nothing like the photos there was maybe enough space for 3 people and a sunbed or two the rest was rocks. After walking down that hill I expected a nice time. Turns out I was wrong

So so disappointed. Went there with my partner. When you finally arrive at the bottom, after a mega steep hill, there’s nowhere to stay. The beach is super small, it shouldn’t even be called a beach and it’s all covered in stones so nowhere to sit down. We had no option but to stay at the ‘restaurant’ which was another flop. Ordered a hotdog and what I got, I wouldn’t even feed to the dogs. Waste of a day and money.

Awesome area with rocks and sand (not so much) in a wild location..not easy to reach: you need a 4x4 or a mountain equipment…there’s a 30% sloping road ..but when you arrive at the beach you can find an oasis fur drinking end eating with great choice (ask to the owner for an help to go back on the top)

We’ll I should have paid more attention to the recent reviews! Getting there was easy and managed to get a space in the car park (only enough space for 4/5 cars). There’s then a steep walk down to the “beach” which is probably around a 20-25% slope). Others have mentioned about a ride up and down for a couple of Euros, however don’t expect it to be available as we found out. The beach itself is very secluded and quiet but and it’s a big but - there is no sand and the swimming area is rocky. Having said all that our little boy had fun stacking stones but the sea was way too dangerous for him to venture in to

San Blas beach is a former shadow of itself. A storm carried away all the sand and deposited rocks. We went with high hopes but were faced with a rocky walk to reach the end of the beach which was the only flat space but it was hardened clay. The water was warm but the beach is to be avoided if you want a relaxing sandy beach. Perilous is one word I would use to describe the walk along the rocky beach. We were still able to pay for the lift to the small parking area at the top of the steepest of hills. Parking for cars is limited to approx 5 cars.

If you want to sunbathe and swim in the sea but you don't like sand - this is a place to go! It's a very calm place and we loved it!
