Many Maltese, Gozitans and tourists never miss an opportunity to come here for a swim or a glimspe of the vista from the viewing gallery during their holidays in Malta.
In the middle of the sandy beach there is an eye-catching statue of the Holy Mary with baby Jesus in her arms, a testimony to the strong religious faith of the Gozitans.
Although the bay is very popular, there is ample space for everyone and the beach is never overly crowded. Parts of the shoreline are more pebbly than others making these areas a bit difficult to go out at sea but after a few meters it clears out.
At the far side of the beach, there are no pebbles and entry into the sea is easier.
