Deep within the thriving restaurant scene of St Julian’s, Balluta Bay is a small yellow sand beach with a length of no more than 50 metres. One of few areas of sand in Malta’s south, it is accessed via a short series of steps from the seafront promenade. Declining gently into the waters, it becomes deep relatively quickly. Deeper areas are used by locals to moor their dinghies and other small boats.
Facing roughly northeast, Balluta Bay Beach isn’t somewhere to head for solitude, but if you’re happy with the constant flow of people and traffic you’re at a prime spot to absorb all this part of Malta offers visitors whatever their age.
There are no sun loungers available for rent and few other dedicated beach facilities beside public showers, however you’re close enough to public toilets, hotels and places to eat and drink that this shouldn’t matter a great deal.
