Just enough without being too busy

Mellieha Bay holidays could just be the solution to the problem – the problem being you want to go to Malta but are put off by the apparent lack of sandy beaches on the island.

Mellieha Bay Deals

Relax on the longest sandy beach on the island

Well yes, Malta does have somewhat of a sandy beach shortage, but here on late deals to Mellieha Bay you will find a fabulous sandy beach nestled on the north east coast that the whole family will love. In fact, it is home to the longest sandy beach on the island and is around a one hour transfer from the airport with easy access into livelier resorts such as Bugibba which are just south across the bay.

Although not a typically lively resort you will find a selection of beach bars and restaurants, ensuring that there will be enough to occupy you in the evenings. You may be tempted to try the local octopus dishes possibly washed down with a glass or two of local wine, but if that doesn’t take your fancy then you will always find a good selection of British favourites on the menu to make you feel right at home.
