The bay of Armier is found at the very northern tip of Malta. The sandy beach sits right in front of the islands of Comino and Gozo. Over the years, bars and small restaurants were set up on the beach, providing basic facilities. The area is still considered rural so the place has no hotels or specific tourist facilities. Swimming in Armier is generally considered safe. It can, however, see some rough seas when hit with the north winds. The area is popular also during the winter season for picnics and barbecues.
