Malta is an island country situated  in the central Mediterranean Sea mainly on three largest islands - Malta Island, Gozo, and Comino, other small islands are uninhabited. In the summer season, when the thermometer is close to 35 degrees Celsius, pure Mediterranean Sea looks more than attractive. The coastline of Malta forms many bays and coves.  You can find a place near the sea for your liking here: there are sandy and rocky beaches, where you can rent a deck chair and enjoy the soft noise of the waves away from the hustle and crowds. There are practically no tides and undercurrents around the Maltese islands, so swimming here is safe and pleasant.

Given the size of the islands, they are quite small, you will not find those endless beaches but every cove and little beach has its own character and charm. There are 15 sandy beaches in the Maltese archipelago 15, Malta has 11, Gozo has 2 and Comino 2 as well. The most popular beaches of Malta are: Golden Bay, Ayn Tuffieha, Gnejna Bay, Paradise Bay and Mellieha Bay, also called Ghadira Bay.
Mellieha Bay is a long sandy strip, located near the town of Mellieha with gently sloping sandy bottom. These shallow waters are a perfect place to relax with children. You can rent lounges, deck chairs, sunshades or sit at one of the cafes, restaurants or do some water skiing, windsurfing, canoeing and parasailing.

Located on the west coast, Golden Bay is a beautiful sandy beach between two headlands with golden and brown rocky cliffs and excellent stretch of fine sand.
Ghajn Tuffieha is located near Golden Bay. To get to the beach, you will need to go down the long staircase.Ghajn Tuffieha (meaning “the Apple’s Eye”), is next to Golden Bay, one of Malta’s most popular beaches and because it can only be reached by a flight of 180 steps, it’s much quieter than its neighbour. Come for the unspoilt rural atmosphere, with tamarisk, samphire and acacia flanking a stretch of fine sand, then stay for the sunsets, looking due west across the waves.

Located on the west coast, Gnejna Bay is a beautiful sandy beach, as well as a flat platform of white rocks. Gnejna is a spectacular bay located on the western coast, near the town of Mgarr.
Equally enjoyable are the rocky beaches, which are incidentally preferred by many tourists and locals. The flat rocky coast can comfortably accommodate you for sunbathing, and safely swimming with a mask exploring the fascinating underwater world. These rocky beaches can be found along the coast of Sliema, St. Julian, Bugibba, Qawra, Marsascala and Zurrieq.
Perhaps one of the most attractive beaches in Gozo is Ramla l-Hamra, which means "red sand". the sand here is unusually dark of a reddish color. There are more nice beaches on Gozo island such as San Blas, Marsalforn and Xwejni.

Dwejra Bay is located on the west coast. It is is a small pebble beach, fenced off from the high sea cliff bay. Dwejra boasts dive-sites (such as the Chimney and the Blue Hole) good enough to draw enthusiasts from around the world. Snorkeling from the beach at the Inland Sea through the tunnel and out into the bay is another attraction; local fishermen offer boat rides that follow the same route. Hiking round Dwejra Bay brings you to some quiet sunbathing spots opposite Fungus Rock, a limestone islet festooned with a brown plant prized by the 18th-century Knights of St John for its supposed medicinal properties.
Comino island. Be sure to visit the Blue Lagoon (Blue Lagoon) on the island of Comino. The sea is of unique bright turquoise color. Comino can be reached by boats from Malta that regularly depart from Sliema, Bugibba and Cirkewwa. And from Gozo: the port of Mgarr, Marsalforn and Xlendi.
