The beaches are among the cleanest in Europe
Avoid the burnt tourist brigade in Golden Bay and instead head to neighbouring Ghajn Tuffieha, which is a lot more peaceful due to a flight of stone stairs acting as a deterrent to lazy sunbathers. Truly off-the-beaten track are the rocky flats of Peter's Beach. You won't find an ice-cream shop or a sun-lounger here, nor will you join hoards of holiday makers. Pack a picnic, stretch out on the rocks and dare to bare, as you'll likely be the only people there.
