If you’re staying in St Julian’s on your holiday to Malta, you’ll be able to enjoy 4 different areas on the east coast. Spinola Bay, Paceville and St George’s Bay are all within walking distance and offer different activities depending on what kind of holiday you’re looking for. The small sandy beach offers an area for relaxation whereas the area of St Julian’s is bustling with life which will make your holiday one to remember.
You may want to stay around St Julian’s and enjoy the unique restaurants, the local lidos or the small beach on your holiday. For a day trip though, Valletta, Malta’s capital, is only 20 minutes away and has a show stopping 16th Century cathedral overlooking the ocean and the Palace of the Grand Master is definitely worth a visit if you want to find out more about this small island’s history and culture.
St Julian’s is a great place to sample Malta’s authentic cuisine, especially in the Spinola area where waterfront restaurants dish up Maltese soup as well as family friendly dishes from around the Mediterranean. If you want to enjoy a night out, Spinola is nice for a relaxed glass of wine but make your way to Paceville for lively bars and clubs that play a mixture of music through the night until early morning!
Malta isn’t famed for its beaches but there is a small patch of sand at St George’s Bay where visitors can go and dip their toes in the water. Only a 10 minute journey from Spinola Bay, St George’s Bay is very popular with locals and tourists but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s a great place to soak up the Maltese sun while watching the world go by.
