Ta’ Xbiex

Ta' Xbiex is a peninsula overlooking the inner reaches of Marsamxett Harbour.

Its name means 'place for fishing nets' and may be one of only a few places that bear a name of Greek origin. Until the mid 20th century it was a small fishing port. The seafront is lined with large villas and offers fine views of Valletta's bastions across the Msida Creek yacht marina. Today, many of the villas are embassies and offices. Ta' Xbiex is known for its quiet, relaxed atmosphere and is a sought-after residential area. The marina not only brings business to Ta' Xbiex but also makes a picturesque place for enjoying the harbour views.

The promenade from Tal-Pieta'-Msida Creek to Gżira-Tas-Sliema makes a good walk.
