Ramla Bay, Gozo
Not to be confused with Ramla Bay in Malta, it’s Malta’s sister island in Gozo, which is home to Ramla Bay, popular for its glowing red-orange coloured sand. Set in northern Gozo between the villages of Nadhur and Xaghra, the best way to reach Ramla Bay is via Nadhur’s main road. Although this is the largest and most popular beach in Gozo and is frequented by Gozitans and tourists alike, it is never overcrowded, even in high season. If the sand isn’t eye-catching enough, the beach also has a statue of Holy Mary holding a baby Jesus, paying tribute to the Gozitan’s strong religious beliefs. Take a walk up to the purpose-built viewing gallery, close to Calypso Cave, and take in the impressive views all in one location.
