Pembroke: Swim and Enjoy the Peace and Quiet

Are you in Malta? Are you tired of the noisy crowded beaches then why not head out to Pembroke?



In the summer season, the beaches in Malta are often crowded with tourists and Maltese alike. It’s so hot that going for a swim is not an option, it’s a necessity. Although as you can imagine, an island is surrounded by sea all the way round, but people have a tendency to congregate at the same beaches: mostly Golden Bay, Ghadira Bay, St. George’s Bay and St. Thomas Bay just to mention a handful of the most popular.

If you’re not into battling to find a spot to roll out your towel, let me suggest an alternative spot: Pembroke. Pembroke is great because it is just 5 minutes away from St. George’s Bay. It’s so close that walking is the best option.

Here you won’t find many people. Especially tourists, it’s mainly the people from the immediate vicinity who come and swim here. But that’s not a problem is it?

I’m afraid the coastline is rugged and therefore the beaches are rocky and not sandy so perhaps that’s a little compromise you have to make here. But if you’re willing to sacrifice sand for ample space and quiet moments, then this is the place for you.
