Situated on Malta's North East coast, St Pauls Bay is the largest and most popular holiday resort on the island. With a wide range of hotels this former fishing village has something for anyone from families to singles and travellers of all ages. A St Pauls Bay holiday together with the nearby resorts of Buggiba and Qawra has long been established as a firm favourite with those visiting the Maltese islands.
St Paul's Bay offers excellent bathing from smooth rock platforms and the large range of beach clubs and lidos offer a wide selection of water sports. For those looking for a sandy beach, the largest on the island at Mellieha Bay is only a few kilometres away. A wide selection of restaurants, bars and night spots line the seafront promenade.
The town of St. Pauls Bay itself is somewhat quieter and the old town still manages to retain an old Maltese charm. Made famous for being the location that the Apostle was shipwrecked, there is a wealth of culture available from the 16th century church to a number of museums. You may however just prefer to breathe in the culture by wandering through the back streets and have a look for yourself.
The climate is typically Mediterranean, similar to that of Southern Italy or Southern Greece. In the summer there is up 12 hours of sunshine a day.
