Rewind a good few years and locals frustrated with the numerous foreign conquerors landing on the beaches, decided to take matters into their own hands and submerge a wall off the coast in Ramla to catch out would-be attackers. Little did they know that, all these years later, their efforts would be enjoyed by the surfing community who love the large, powerful waves it helps create.
It may be a sandy beach but there are rocks to negotiate so, while it is relatively easy to access, Ramla is best avoided unless you’re an experienced surfer. You’ll also want to watch for currents, as they can be strong here but, when it’s good at Ramla, it’s really good. You can find yourself catching a relatively long (for Malta) left or right- especially when the wind is north, north-easterly or north-westerly.
