Pretty Bay 1

Pretty Bay is one of the few sandy beaches in the southern region of Malta. It is located in the town of Birżebbuġa – a small seaside resort not far from Marsaxlokk in southeast Malta. It has been a popular bathing spot for Maltese holiday-makers for decades.


Pretty Bay 2

 Originally a rocky coast where up to some years ago, sand was virtually non-existent, the bay was artificially filled with sand recovered from the sea during dredging works for a nearby project. Pretty Bay is now one of the prettiest sandy beaches on the island. It lies right in the town centre where there are plenty of shops and restaurants.

Pretty Bay 3

 Always bustling with activity, the bay offers something for everyone including beach sport activities and windsurfing. A number of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and kiosks line the street opposite the beach. There is also a rocky area situated only a few minutes’ walk outside Pretty Bay which makes it an ideal spot for snorkelling.
