Located on the northeastern tip of the picturesque island of Malta, St. Paul’s Bay is a beautiful beach resort, featuring lively beaches, historical buildings and a plethora of shopping and dining options. Originally a fishing village, St. Paul’s Bay has evolved from a sleepy hamlet to a fabulous beach destination.

 

The beaches of Bugibba and Qawra are particularly popular with tourists. Bugibba has a large promenade with plenty of shops and restaurants, while Qawra is known for its raw, natural beauty. Whichever beach you head to, St. Paul's Bay is a great place to sunbathe and indulge in exciting watersports. If you fancy island-hopping, head to the sleepy (yet spectacular) sister island of Gozo – famous for its turquoise waters which offers hours of snorkelling. Malta also has a rich history and you’ll find places of historical interest located throughout the island. There is the majestic Castille Palace in Valletta, the cryptic Hal-Saflieni Hypogeum, a Neolithic subterranean burial chamber, and Ggantija, a Megalithic temple complex that is supposed to be older than the pyramids of Egypt.

 

Lessons in history apart, the beach resort has a great cosmopolitan vibe with a pulsating nightlife. Both Bugibba and Qawra are known for their young and hip crowd and lively club scene. Holidays to St. Paul’s Bay are never complete without trying out some of the local fare, including the famous Maltese bread and savoury pastries which can be picked up in most restaurants. Finally, don't forget to check out the open-air markets where you'll find gorgeous lacework and basket-ware items. St. Paul’s Holidays are a great escape from the hectic city life.

Places to go and things to do in St Pauls Bay

Lounge at the Beach

Lounge at the Beach

Nearly all of St. Paul Bay’s beach is rocky. But you can find a strip of sand at the head of the Bay to lounge or sunbathe.

This is for if you desire some privacy from the touristy crowd.

Lounge in the sun with your favourite drink or book, and soak in the scenery of the Med.

Indulge in Watersports

St Paul’s Bay is a haven for watersports lovers with ringos, inflatables and waterskiing off the coast.

There is also diving school where you can learn to scuba dive if you’re a newbie. The area is also good for snorkelling and the waterfront lidos are great for a spot of sunbathing.

Sail on a Fishing Boat

As St Paul’s Bay grew from a fishing village, you can still find many fishermen colonies here.

Many still fish for a living, and would gladly take you along into the seas if you are willing.

Trips are available for a full day and night. Get to join the fishermen as they go about their catch, enjoy the sea winds and the hospitality of the crew.

Say Hello to Marine Life

Malta’s National Aquarium can be found in St. Paul’s Bay, and is a popular tourist attraction, particularly for families hoping to keep the kids boredom-free.

As well as the various tanks filled with species of fish and marine life, there’s a café on site too, where you can enjoy lunch or a refreshing cold drink.

Take a Segway Tour

Who wants to walk when you can ride a Segway instead? These two wheeled nippy rides are a great way to explore the area of St Paul’s Bay.

Glide along the promenade overlooking the Med and take in the views. Once you’ve found your balance, you’ll find that using one is much easier than it looks, and a fun-filled experience to be had for all!

Wander the Fishing Harbour

While the tourist appeal of St Paul’s Bay grows year on year, there is still a strong element of tradition in the area, especially around the pretty fishing harbour in the heart of the Old Town.

An afternoon in this charming town will allow you to look at what life used to be like here, before tourism became a major industry.

Revel in the Nightlife

St Paul's Bay has its share of fun clubs and bars and the old town is great for a relaxed dinner by the water.

This corner of Malta is seriously popular with holidaymakers so there are clubs, bars and restaurants to suit most tastes and budgets and the nearby resorts are short taxi rides away if you fancy changing things up one evening.

Explore a Wignacourt Tower

Dating back to the 1600s, the Wignacourt Towers were built to protect the island from invaders, and the series can be found dotted around the Maltese coastline.

There’s one in St Paul’s Bay to explore, which is home to a variety of exhibitions across the two floors – perfect for an afternoon of history and discovery.
