This charming archive footage shows families and holidaymakers enjoying fun days by the sea more than 50 years ago.
The film, which dates from 1968, features seaside hot spots such as St Paul’s Bay, Ghajn Tuffieha and Sliema next to the Chalet pier at Ghar id-Dud.
Included in the black-and-white footage are images of children enjoying ice creams and playing in the sand, young mums trying to top up their sun tans, and British teenagers diving into the crystal clear sea off Malta.
The footage forms part of a treasure trove of fascinating images from the PBS Archives.
The series of films highlight the huge changes that have taken place in Malta and Gozo over the past 100 years.
Today, Malta’s most popular beaches are Mellieħa Bay, Għajn Tuffieha and Golden Bay, which was known as Military Bay until the 1960s.
In Gozo, the most beautiful beach remains Ramla Bay, a large beach of unusual red sand nestling by countryside.
