Balluta Bay lies on a long stretch of rocky coastline that goes all the way from Qui-si-Sana, Sliema to St. Julian's. This coastline is packed with sunbathers during the peak summer months. Every so often, you will find steps and handrails which provide easy access to the water. There are plenty of flat rocks to spread a towel on. The sea here is deep, and generally clean, clear and safe to swim. It is also excellent for snorkelling. There are plenty of snack bars and restaurants on the coast road and kiosks near the shoreline.
