The beach at Mistra, also known as Mistra Bay is one of the most peaceful and quiet in Malta and it is located between Xemxija and Selmun Bay. With a long history of occupations ranging from the Phoenicians to the Romans, this horseshoe-shaped bay is an ideal place to relax and take long walks along the sea. The beach at Mistra is essentially a beach of pebbles, and this may be the reason for that is not among the most popular in Malta, as there are many other beaches to go. Military facilities that were built years ago, now serve as offices for the farms. They are on the outside of the bay, but you can see from the beach.
Although the beach at Mistra is not among the best we can find in Malta, Offers good opportunities for snorkeling. Getting in and out of the water can be tricky because the pebbles in the water complicate the movement. The best spots are in the rocky areas bordering the bay. If you walk to the end of the road along the bay, you will be rewarded with magnificent views of the islands of San Pablo. One of the larger islands has a statue of this saint was built in 1945.
To reach the Mistra Bay, we do not have a bus that goes directly. However, 43, 44 and 45 buses run about, and we can get a little walk. The best reference is to get off the bus one stop beyond the church of Xemxija. We must then walk 30 minutes to reach the beach of Mystras. Everything is well marked so it is difficult to get lost. However, we have the option of renting a bike and reach the beach in this way. Indeed, it is ideal if we’re on vacation, the road is very quiet and the landscapes are worth seeing.
