Great place to wander, eat, drink and generally enjoy life. It is the most attractive and buzzing of all the bays in the area - with a massive variety of watering and drinking holes and close to Paceville and the Bay Street Shopping centre.

This area packs a lot of punch. With plenty of cafes, restaurants, shops and bars to choose from. Explore here during the day or take a stroll around in the evening. There is plenty of choice, and the boats that decorate the bay are oh so pretty.

Apart from some fantastic seascapes, good restaurants and a mecca for tourists (you'd be hard put to hear a conversation in Maltese here!) Spinola is the main thoroughfare (and a VERY busy traffic focal point) to Paceville - the be all - end all of night entertainment in Malta.

Traffic can be a problem in this area. Very busy at night but the restaurants are plenty, some better than others, the view across the bay at night is very nice.

Right near Cuba Restaurant We walked all the way to Sliema ( and it kept going ) on a wide, beautifully maintained walkway right in the Mediterranean. There... More

Lots of great walks around the water fronts of st Julian. I am sure there would be more outside cafes open in the summer months.
