A large resort on Malta’s north coast, St Paul’s Bay holidays have lots to offer, from peaceful, atmospheric explorations to buzzing nightlife. Once a fishing village, the area has grown into a busy commercial hub, but it retains much of its charm thanks to the local families that still live there, and this is one of the best places to experience authentic Maltese culture – in particular, some great food.
St Paul’s Bay offers a wide range of activities to get stuck into, from exploring prehistoric caves and embarking on cruises around the bay to visiting ancient stone temples. With a stellar selection of restaurants, bars and cafés, plus its striking coastline, this is one of Malta’s gems. There’s a delicate balance of old and new, busy and quiet, which makes holidays to St Paul’s Bay an attractive prospect for travellers of all age ranges and tastes.

Explore ancient caves
Roman burial sites, ancient beehives and caves that date back hundreds of thousands of years are found along the insightful, awe-inspiring Xemxija Heritage Trail – plus, walking it is good exercise.
