About Gnejna Bay in Malta

Ġnejna bay lies on the north west coast of Malta, facing the island of Gozo. It is known as Mġarr's beach and is sign posted three kilometres west of Mġarr, past a beautiful big church and Castello Zamitello. Ġnejna bay is located at the bottom of a beautiful valley which is rich in with many fruit trees and farmer's fields. Down the road and even from the sandy beach you could see the Lippija tower, one of the four similar watch towers built by Grand master Lascaris in 1637. You can also see the boathouses which were handmade on the east side of the bay hollowed into the soft limestone cliff. These are used by local fishermen, which most of them are over fourty five years old.

The bay has a clean sandy beach ideal for children and smooth rocky platforms. In the middle of the bay there is plane wreck from the Second World War ideal for snorkelling around it. On the right side of the bay you will find a small beach and a rocky platform frequented a lot by gays. It is called Qarraba bay or the nudist beach - mind you it is illegal although nobody seems to bother about it!

So if you're thinking of taking a holiday in Malta make sure you'll visit Ġnejna bay and make use of our beach facilities, water sports, boat tours and other services we offer.
