Top Lidos in Malta to Visit for a Foodie Day by the Pool 🏊‍♀️

Top Lidos in Malta to Visit for a Foodie Day by the Pool 🏊‍♀️

I don’t know about you, but when I think of summer, the thing that excites me the most is the anticipation for days by the pool where I can take a dip in the water, work on my tan, have a poolside cocktail with friends and a tasty lunch to wrap it all up. Thankfully, I’m never left disappointed as Malta is packed with fabulous lidos where you can have the pool day you’ve been waiting for all year; and a foodie-approved meal to go with it. ☀️

Café Del Mar 

Easily one of the most gorgeous lidos on the island, Café Del Mar also sports a great Mediterranean menu and sushi bar for poolside dining, as well as a killer cocktail menu. If you fancy, you can also head up to the National Aquarium for lunch at La Nave Bistro. 🍽️

Amazonia Complex 

Forming part of the Dolmen Hotel in Bugibba, the Amazonia Complex is perfect if you’re looking for a lido in the North with both pool and private beach access. Enjoy lunch at their Batubulan Sunset Grill, and grab a drink at the Aqua Terrace. 🍹

1926 Beach Club

This place has been a total hit since it opened its doors, and it’s no surprise considering the luxurious feel of the infinity pool, the fully stocked bar, and amazing food menu at 1926 on the Qui-Si-Sana seafront. 😋

The Lido St George’s Bay

The Lido at the Corinthia Hotel is another great spot for poolside chilling and a dip in the open sea. Special entrance rates include a food voucher that can be used at White Olive or Henry J. Bean’s, and they also have a lido and buffet breakfast bundle option. Yum! 🌊

The Reef Club St Julian’s

You can find the Reef Club lido at the Westin Dragonara Hotel in St Julian’s, and they offer a day pass that includes a food voucher for the Reef Club Restaurant and Palio’s. 👌

MedAsia Playa 

With 3 pools, sea access, and a shisha lounge, it doesn’t get more chill than MedAsia Playa. When it comes to the foodie game, they’re also winning; with Le Majoliche restaurant, NapolEat Fusion, a sushi bar and various drink bars. 🤩

Luzzu Lido Bugibba 

This Qawra Bay Lido is an adult-only pool and beach club, so you can expect to have a good, headache-free, time. Entrance includes a food and drink voucher at the Luzzu Restaurant.  🎉


This one may not include a pool, but it’s impossible to talk about lidos with incredible food without mentioning Beachaven. Chill out here with your crew in the late evening for the chill vibes and great eats. 🏖️


Beefbar is an ultra-luxurious location in St Paul’s Bay. Take a dip in the pool or sea, and chill out in the lounge for a drink before heading to the restaurant. As the name suggests, you’re spoilt for choice on premium beef dishes; as well as seafood and veggie options. 🥩
