St Paul’s Bay
Once a small fishing port this is now a popular tourist destination. The cafe bars, restaurants and pleasant views over the bay make it quite a delightful location to spend your holiday time. The popular resorts of Qawra and Bugibba are close by.
If you like beaches then you will like Mellieha, home of one of the few sandy beaches in Malta. There is also a bird sanctuary in Melliaha – The Ghadira Nature Reserve.
This is known for its film set village used in the making of the film Popeye by the film director Robert Altman. After the filming it was turned into a fun park.
There is a good beach here and although it is quite small it is very popular with tourists during the summer months.
From here you can take the ferry to the Island of Gozo and a pleasure boat to Comino. Had we spent more than a week in Malt we would probably have taken the trip across the short stretch of water but unfortunately we ran out of time.
