The Bugibba perched beach services the area most needing a sandy beach. Launched some years ago and situated in the busiest area of Bugibba.
The coastline from St. Paul’s Bay up to Bahar ic-Caghaq is all rocky. This beach has become a direct invitation for those who love sand and do not wish to travel to other localities to enjoy relaxing on a sandy beach.
