Holidays in
St Julians

A buzzy Maltese hotspot

A small but bustling town on the east coast of Malta, St Julian’s holidays offer vibrant nightlife combined with the old-world charm of a fishing village. Divided into four districts, St Julian’s is popular with students from local language schools and tourists of all ages. Its diverse local culture includes sleepy Maltese restaurants, a rare sandy beach, lidos, pubs, clubs and a wide range of shops.

Paceville is the island’s top spot for clubs – it’s a lively area where you’ll be able to dance the night away, kick back to some reggae or jazz, or down a few beers with friends. Elsewhere, there’s a lovely promenade and lots of quiet streets where you can go for a wander away from the main hub. Spinola Bay features Richard England’s famous ‘LOVE’ monument, while the rest of the town is a mix of historic Maltese architecture and more contemporary buildings. Holidays to St Julian’s are great for families, young travellers and older tourists alike.

Your St Julian’s questions, answered

St Julian’s has a man-made sandy beach at Balluta Bay, and nearby is sandy St George’s Bay. The remaining coastline is rocky, but there are flat rocks and concrete platforms where you can sunbathe.

Party lovers will be pleased to know that most Maltese nightclubs close at 4am, so you can put in a good innings if that’s your thing.

It’s affordable and diverse. You’ll find a range of Maltese delicacies, British grub and international offerings throughout St Julian’s, with lots of different cafés and restaurants.
