Golden Bay Vacation Packages

From Golden Bay, it's only 10 miles east to the city centre of Valletta.

Plan a day trip to Mgarr, 2 miles to the southeast of Golden Bay. It's home to a nice selection of tourist hotspots. St. Paul's Cathedral and Golden Sands Beach are among the best choices. If you have some extra time on your hands, stop by Mellieha Bay.

Spend the day relaxing and taking in the views at a local beach. St George's Beach, 8 miles to the east, and Bugibba Beach, 5 miles to the east, are two great picks.

To reconnect with the sights and sounds of nature, make your way to Blue Lagoon, located 5 miles away from Golden Bay. Another option is Blue Grotto, 10 miles away.

Be sure to stop at Gnejna Bay and the Popeye Village Malta.

Head out to Mellieha to visit Roman Villa and Collegiate Church of St. Paul's Shipwreck. It's approximately 2 miles from Golden Bay, and well worth the trip. Mnajdra Megalithic Temples and Bugibba Square are some more sights. These are 4 miles out of Golden Bay, in Rabat.

To get to Mediterraneo Marine Park, Mellieha Church and Selmun Palace, you need to travel east from Golden Bay for 4 miles to St. Paul's Bay. If you still have time left, also drop in at St Paul's Island and Malta National Aquarium.

The traditional food here has its own aromas and flavors, so make sure you delve into the area's menus.

To discover the real essence of the region, make sure to taste popular local ingredients like garlic and pasta.

Dine like the local people do by ordering minestra (vegetable soup) and timpana (baked pasta).

Taste some qubbajit (nougat) for a dreamy end to your meal. This divine dessert is perfect for sweet tooths.

Gather your friends and order a few cold ones at the closest bar. Don't bother with the drinks list. If beer is what you're after, Skol is what you need!

Savvy travellers will tell you that one of the best ways to make the most out of any journey is to practice at least a few handy phrases in the native tongue. Kemm jiswa? is the Maltese way to say how much is this. You should also try pronouncing Il-gurnata t-tajba (have a nice day).

Being here on the 21st of September means you can enjoy a front-row seat for Independence Day.

At the end of your vacation in Golden Bay, pack up your bags, spend your remaining European euros on last-minute souvenirs and say a heartfelt Ara inti aktar tard to this special part of the world.

When it's time to hit the tarmac, be advised that Malta International Airport (MLA) is about 11 miles to the southeast.
