About Us

A few words about us

Let us introduce ourselves

Uniquely situated in picturesque Paradise Bay, in the North-westernmost side of the Island of Malta, sun, sand and sea are not the only reasons why you should make the beach AT PARADISE BAY your only port of call.
the beach AT PARADISE BAY specialises in BBQ grills, fresh fish, Mediterranean dishes, pizza, pasta and salads, all served in the relaxed, al fresco restaurant overlooking the clear waters of the bay.
Be it under the mid-day Summer sun or under the moon and stars, nothing beats a freshly prepared cocktail on our terrace or on the sand.
We are also well-equipped with sunbathing terraces, showers, and a beach shop. Private and Group incentive functions are also catered for.

A place to relax and unwind, a place to dine

How it all came to be…

  • We strive for excellent service and quality. We constantly assess our clients’ needs and offer a wide range of facilities for both families and friends.
  • For an enjoyable stay with us, we offer all you need; be it sun-beds and parasols that can be rented out from the beach shop situated just beneath the restaurant level, whereas towels, sun creams, toiletries, beach toys, etc. can be also purchased making us the ideal one-stop-shop.
  • We want you to feel at home so in addition to this, we also offer other facilities which include restrooms, showers and nappy changing facilities.
  • During the day, we operate on a self catering service, preparing fresh food on order. Enjoy it at our restaurant or as a take out on the beach.
  • In the evening, the restaurant transforms into an a la carte service setting; offering a great service and atmosphere with fresh local produce.
  • As from March to May and mid-September to October, the Bar Terrace will be intimately set up for lunch time, offering table service, overlooking spectacular views of Paradise Bay.
  • Single or/and twin glass bottom Kayaks are available (weather permitting) where one can get back to nature with family and friends with this self-guided activity which requires no previous experience.
  • We also cater for events, corporate functions and incentives, weddings, other occasions…..
