Once a quiet cove only frequented by fisherman, Spinola Bay has transformed into a bustling tourist hub of St. Julian's. You can swim in the bay's clear water, take a stroll down the seaside promenade, or sit and people-watch. The area is lined with some of Malta's most famous bars and pubs, which are favorite hangouts of tourists and locals. Once you've worked up an appetite, you'll have a selection of restaurants to choose from that serve local specialties, as well as international cuisine. During the high-season, you may need to make a reservation for some of the most popular restaurants. Our Saint Julian's trip builder makes visiting Spinola Bay and other Saint Julian's attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
