We chose to go to Paradise Bay as our hotel in Mellieha offered a coupon for a free shuttle bus, but we wished we had just stayed at Mellieha bay beach instead and felt slightly conned. Paradise Bay looks picturesque apart from the ferry terminal...More

Basically it's a sandy beach. Swimming and sunbathing was my main activities. But there is a possibility to go on boat ride. And ride inflatable objects towed by boat.
