Perched Beach

To enjoy some of the best weather anywhere in Europe, head to Perched Beach for a day in the warm Mediterranean sunshine. Sitting in the centre of town, it’s quite small but has been awarded the Blue flag, so you know it’s going to be nice.

Perched Beach is a 150 metre long manmade stretch of sand, which makes it much more appealing than other rocky or pebbly beaches in Bugibba and much more suitable for children.

Stepping onto the sand, pick a sun lounger for the day and sit back with a good book. Gaze out across the sparkling Mediterranean Sea and towards St. Paul’s Island before you go for a dip in the water to cool off. As the name suggests, Perched Beach is above sea level, so there are wooden
jetties that you can use to get into the sea.

If you want to inject some action into your day, then have a go at the water sports on offer, such as jet skiing, waterskiing and scuba diving. Or hire your own boat and set sail around the coast to
explore more of Malta’s beautiful scenery.

There’s a kiosk at the beach where you can buy cold drinks and snacks, or on the other side of the promenade there are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants. With toilets at the beach, you can easily spend a day soaking up the sun, swimming and snorkelling.

After a relaxing day at Perched Beach, take your little ones for a quick splash at Bugibba Water Park. Or settle down for a couple of drinks in Bugibba Square as the sun starts to go down.
