Best for Families - Expert review of Ramla Beach
This is my family’s favourite beach in Malta for a lazy day or a quick swim. A large stretch of red sand in a beautiful bay, Ramla is Gozo’s largest beach with plenty of space on the sand (and, OK, in summer, plenty of people too) and a gentle slope into deeper water. There are no modern buildings here except a couple of portacabins hidden away at one end housing the beach cafes (open May-October), which serve pizzas and pasta as well as drinks and ice creams.
High above the bay at one end is Calypso’s Cave where Odysseus (Ulysses) is said to have been held spellbound by the sea nymph for seven years on his way back from the Trojan War. Certainly, it is a fun little cave with fabulous views over the bay.
