Too bad Pwales beach, at least when we were there, is not suitable for swimming. It is at the apex of the Bay of Xemxija which is great, the water is clean and you can see the bay with rows of houses constructed in the style of Maltese, with a touch of old that has a charisma or a Cuban style.In regards to the environment, I must say that when we were there, the beach was covered with seaweed or debris with thickness, and I actually didn´t see much sand. This may be why the bathroom is not good here, maybe also by the issue of boats and ports ... It is a shame because this could be a real nice beach . The fact is that the Xemxija walk along the road, with its long shell-shaped curve, is a good way to see Pwales beach and stay on the railing and look at this lovely bay. From the viewpoint Xemxija Bay up the road from the height perspective it is very suggestive, but looking over the railing, this bay also has its charm. Small rocks, creeks, concrete piers and some other mini strip of sand dot the bay, as well as many boats floating peacefully on these waters of a thousand and one blue tones. It is the typical image of a relaxing place that makes a photo shoot after another, without stopping. They are very interesting photos where you see where locals keep their boats fishmongers, auctions thousand painted doors and colors that give a little joy to pale yellow almost every house facades ls Xemxija, and Malta. That said, the absence of the availability of the beach, the stroll along the promenade overlooking the bay from different angles is an excellent option to relax, as I say, a very "photogenic". Throughout the walk there are enough parking spaces, so if you both for Valletta to Mellieha, this shell shaped bay is a must for the obligatory pictures.
