ST. PAUL'S BAY

St. Paul’s Bay, Malta

St. Paul's Bay

St. Paul's Bay and its neighbours Buġibba and Qawra are Malta's largest, seaside resorts. They offer plentiful accommodation ranging from self-catering apartments to hotel complexes and a variety of nightlife and leisure options.

The coastline here has some wonderful open sea views and a vista across to St. Paul's Island, where, according to legend, the ship carrying the Apostle is said to have been wrecked. The coastline promenade provides a long, though mostly level and easy walk from St. Paul's Bay all the way to Qawra Point, with its tower and views over Salina Bay. St. Paul's Bay started life as a small fishing village. The main tourist zone is concentrated on the promontory east of St. Paul's Church towards the modern resorts of Buġibba and Qawra. Xemxija, on the inner northern shore of St. Paul's Bay, has also developed into a holiday centre.
