Trip Planner Europe  /  Malta  /  Island of Malta  /  St. Paul's Bay
(4.2/5 based on 3,000+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, adventure, nightlife
Named after the saint who laid the foundations of Christianity on Malta over two millennia ago, St. Paul's Bay serves as the centerpiece of the nation's most visited stretch of coastline. A tiny fishing village for most of its existence, the growing town draws travelers with its seafront promenade, pebbly beaches, lively nightlife, and easy access to the adjacent resorts of Bugibba and Qawra. Be sure to visit the town's emblematic 17th-century tower, which houses a museum dedicated to Malta's rich architectural heritage. To escape the crowds and discover the area's spiritual side, visit nearby St. Paul's Island, where the apostle landed in the first century CE. Make the most of your holiday in St. Paul's Bay by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Malta vacation generator.
