Armier Bay is located at the northern tip of Malta known as Bajjet l-Armier, further up by around three kilometers from Mellieha Bay. It is situated in a very green cultivated area of Mellieħa known as L-Ahrax.
It is made up of two bays adjacent to each other, one smaller than the other with the smaller bay called Little Armier. They are separated from one another by a small stretch of rocky coast.
The location is perfect for a relaxing day away from all noises of traffic and congestion. Exactly in front of the bays there is Comino and further to the right there is Gozo. The views are surely not lacking.
It is recommended to visit these bays for the quiet ambient, no passing traffic. In fact they are accessed through a separate road per bay and these are still narrow rough roads. Although the bays are very close to each other however it is better to walk the rough road between them.
The sea is very clear and is said that it is similarly clear to that of the Blue Lagoon in Comino and Hondoq ir-Rummien in Gozo. All three located in this area almost facing each other. There can be strong swells from the north since the bay is well exposed to the open sea and this is the reason why the sea is always so clean.
The approaching roads leading to these bays are well indicated with signage and the separate roads leading to each bay still bumpy and narrow. Not many cars pass from here except those who come to these bays and the many Maltese that have their boat houses here.
All the area around these roads is cultivated with Maltese style rubble walls where the stone is of a different contour than that of other areas. One can observe the different structure of the rocks. In fact the rubble walls are built with this type of stone which gives a different characteristic to this area.
Armier Bay is an ideal beach away from the daily routine.
