North-East Malta Coastline

The long stretch of coastline from St. Paul's Bay through to Sliema includes most of Malta's most popular resorts but has few sandy beaches. What it does have, though, is a large number of designated sea swimming areas, most of them with cafes and restaurants nearby. About halfway along the coast, and easily reachable by bus or car, is the popular Mediterraneo Marine Park where you can swim with dolphins or cool off in Malta's largest "splash and fun" park.

Mediterraneo Marine Park

Mediterraneo Marine ParkA unique opportunity for adults and children to admire, learn, enjoy and interact with dolphins, sea lions, parrots, iguanas and more. See, hear and touch animals under the guidance of professional animal carers. Swim with dolphins.

The adjoining Splash & Fun Park has a large swimming pool, chutes, slides and cafe as well as a dinosaur park to keep the children happy.

You can either choose one or buy a double ticket to enjoy both atractions.
