Ramla Bay in Gozo
taken from : home.um.edu.mt/ugc/gozo_observer/gozo_observer_14.pdf

Ramla Bay is very rich in biodiversity and supports a number of endemic and threatened species. Around fifty-eight species of plants were identified as well as around thirty-eight varieties of insects, some of which are endemic to the Maltese islands and include some only found at Ramla.
The Ramla Bay is the site of the largest sand dunes on the Maltese islands. The Ramla Bay sand dunes themselves have enormous ecological implications, since there are only three dune systems left in the Maltese islands, which originally housed many more. Many sand dunes have been built over to cater for the tourist industry and so, sadly, very few remain.
The beaches need a valley system behind them in order for them to regenerate and many are now threatened. The sea will simply continue to wash away the sand without it being replaced until the beach disappears completely.
