Pretty Bay

Pretty Bay is the sandy beach in the town of Birżebbuġa - a small but flourishing seaside resort not far from Marsaxlokk in southeast Malta. It has been a popular bathing spot for Maltese holiday-makers for decades.

Up to some years ago, sand was virtually non-existent and bathers took to the water from the flat rocks or from specially built platforms on the shoreline. In more recent years, 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 largest sandy beaches on the island. It lies right in the town centre so there are plenty of shops and restaurants along the coastline. The bay is a good venue for water sports such as windsurfing.
