We decided to explore the coastline with a day trip to two sandy beaches in Malta: Golden Bay and Ghaj Tuffieha. For some reason, there’s a myth that Malta only has rocky beaches. It does, but it has a fair few sandy ones too. We’re not fussy about what terrain beaches are – we don’t sunbathe or swim. But it’s always good to see a bit of variation. This area has a lovely walk/hike you can do and we were frustrated with how busy Valletta was, so it was ideal to get off the beaten track. And after a chilly few days in Valletta and Mdina, we got lucky with the weather this day: an added bonus that made for some pretty photographs… if I do say so myself.
