Whoa!!!! Honestly choosing the 5 best sunset points in Malta is one the toughest job in hand. 

Sunset is one of the best moments of the day for me. I always love to chase sunset.  Setting sun and the colorful sky create a magic which has power to make all calm, peaceful.  You may have experienced lot of sunsets but believe me no two sunsets are same. Every sunset will give you something new – a unique feeling. When you are on an island you will get plenty of chances. We were not exceptional. During our 7 days trip to Malta we tried to explore different places to enjoy sunset. Sometime we managed to get beautiful viewsun sinking in the sea. Sometime weather did not help us. Still we enjoyed and got different experience every day. 

In my opinion below mentioned spots are the 5 best sunset points in Malta. Hope you will get wonderful weather there to enjoy at the fullest.

1. Dingli Cliff:

Dingli Cliff, one of the highest points in Malta, lies over 250 metres from sea level on the west coast of Malta. Because of its location, Dingli offers incredible view of the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, with a clear view of the island of Filfa. If weather permits you can enjoy remarkable view of the sunset from here. We were lucky enough to experience the wonderful phenomenon there. Undoubtedly this is one of the best sunset point in Malta.

How to go: A 35-40 min drive from Valletta by car. Bus no. 52 or 56 go from Valletta to Dingli village, then you need to walk from there. Bus 201 from Rabat goes along the cliffs. You can take your own car right on the cliff.

2. Golden Bay Beach:

Golden Bay is another popular site in Malta for enjoying sunset. It is located next to Ghajn Tuffieha Bay, famous for its golden sand and naturally formed dunes. Radisson Golden Sands hotel is just beside the beach. There is a small beautiful restaurant just on the beach. Enjoy a day at the beach, watch sunset over the clear blue water to mark the end of your day.

We could not get a chance to witness sunset there as it was a cloudy day. We spent sometime in the restaurant and enjoyed the surrounding view with a cup of tea. The environment of the restaurant and quality of food was amazing.

Gnejna Bay, Golden Bay, and Ghajn Tuffieha Bay – all three are located nearby and all have beautiful scenery of Sunset .The below picture is borrowed as we did not get a chance to click.

How to go:  Golden Bay Beach is almost 21 km from Valletta. It takes 40 min by car. Bus no. 44 goes directly to there from Valletta in every 30 min and the journey takes around 1 hr. 15 min.

3. Blue Grotto:  

Blue Grotto is located on the outskirts of the southern town of Zurrieq. From the top of the hill the surrounding views are breathtaking. You need to drive or walk down 500m from the top to Zurrieq to enjoy the sunset. The road was a bit steep, but it was worthy to visit. It is a popular fishing spot for locals.  We sat on the rocks near and had a chat with locals while enjoying beautiful views of sunset. Take your drinks, sit and enjoy the sunset. This is another place which easily get a mention in the best sunset points of Malta.

4. Dwerja Bay:

Dwerja Bay is located on the west coast of the Gozo island. It was well known as the home Azure Window which was featured in movie Odyssey or in series The Game of Thrones.  Though Azure window collapsed in 2017,  Dwerja Bay is still a must visit place for sunset when you are in Gozo.

5. Red Tower Mellieha:

Red Tower is one of the top landmarks in Malta and it is perched up high in Mellieha. The watchtower itself is a sight to see. You will get an amazing view of the island from here as it is located at a higher spot. If weather is favorable you can experience one of the best sunsets in Malta from there.
