Sandy and rocky beaches in the North of Malta

Never ending worries must stop someday. Book your holiday in the North of Malta and enjoy most amazing beaches unmoved by mother nature itself!

Selmun Beach – ImgiebahBay (Mellieha)

Selmun Beach is one of the most remote, calm and sandy havens in Malta. This place offersthe most comfortable yet private sunbathingareas, away from crowds and worries. Selmun Beach is quite difficult to reach- no public transportation will take you there, the road to the beach is quite long and very rough, and you will need to make your way down the hill. But once you have reached this secluded bay you will realise it was worth the effort as you get to spend a day surrounded by pure,unadulterated nature.

When travelling with young childrenit’s recommended to take a taxi or rent a car to get to Selmun. Going down the hill will be quite a challenge for the younger ones, but the crystal-clean water, lots of space and warm sand will unforgettablyreward the whole family.

If you enjoy exploring, then Selmun Beach is just perfect for you. After you climb down the hill and go all the way along the sandy beach you will get to a rocky beach which has a white flat bottom, perfect for swimming. The marble-like rocky beach will be even more private than the sandy one, and you won’t need a sun umbrella there- you will be able to find some shade caused by oddly shaped rocks located all around the beach.

Keep in mind- there are no convenience spots around Selmun Beach, so make sure you have your snacks and a reasonable amount of water ready when you go. Even mobile connection is very poor on this beach, so if you are one of those who seek to forget about the world for a day and fully relax- Selmun is your top beach destination!

Armier Bay

One of the most popular northern beaches of Malta, Armier Bay, will present you with all facilities and conveniences needed. Cafeterias all around the beach, many parking spots, a public convenience, sunbeds and water sports are all within a hand’s reach in Armier Bay.

On a hot summer day this beach could get a bit crowdy, but it’s all fine because just two minutes’ walk away from the main beach, there is one that serves like an extension for the large Armier Bay. It’s even called Little Armier Bay! Great thing is that while you’re at Little Armier you will be able to use most of the facilities of the main Armier Bay. The main difference between Armier Bay and Little Armier is that the first one is sandy and the second one is rocky. Just make a choice based on your mood and enjoy full exposure to the sun and salty water.


And here is a beach for adventurous hikers. If you enjoy hiking with a goal to reach a beach and have a cool refreshing swim after a long walk- FommIr-Rih (which means“mouth of the wind” in Maltese), is just for you.
