Għadira Bay, one of Malta’s largest sandy beaches, is set to get a €2 million upgrade to make it even more attractive and convenient for tourists and locals alike!
The tourism minister Clayton Bartolo and Infrastructure minister Ian Borg announced this project this morning, sharing, ‘We have to change the approach we take to maintaining infrastructure in tourism areas and embrace a new mentality for our zones to be maintained and accessible all year round,’.
This project will start in October and we will see the reconstruction of pedestrian areas at the shorefront, installation of new lights, new toilets, CCTV systems, trees, fountains, and free Wi-Fi available too!
This is a great initiative, as it is important to help the tourism industry get back on its feet after a difficult period due to the pandemic. Bartolo added, ‘This investment is more significant than may first meet the eye because it shows the mentality with which we’re approaching tourism infrastructure’.
‘Quality, quality, quality – we want to offer tourists an experience of quality from the moment they leave the airport to the moment they return home. Politicians must take ambitious and brave decisions in this regard.’
On another positive note, Ian Borg added ‘Malta has its own challenges but it’s a fact that when you speak to hoteliers, they’ll tell you that bookings have started coming in and the rhythm is picking up, despite not being at the same level it was prior to the pandemic.’
