Golden Bay in Malta - Mediterranean is a fairly exposed sandbar break that only works when conditions are just right with no particular seasonal pattern. Offshore winds are from the east and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Able to handle light onshore wind The short fetch makes for windswells rather than groundswells and the ideal wave angle is from the west. The sandbar breaks peel to the left. Good surf at all stages of the tide. A fairly popluar wave that can sometimes get crowded
