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.


The natural rock formation along the edge of the beach has been left intact but the rest of the area has been filled up with sand. During the summer months platforms are installed to help people walk across to go down to the sea.
