Balluta Church is dedicated to our... More

If you are walking from Exile Bay to Spinola Bay then it's a great place to walk by. I think it would be wonderful to sit on the sunny day. There are bay nearby it and the restaurants so you can always decide on going to take a little break by eating something in one of the restaurants or walk... More

This is a bit like Spinola Bay but on a larger scale - the bay is bigger, the area larger, there's the square with it's statues and seats, some places of interest such as a church and St Julian's Tower (just around the corner) and a larger number of eating and drinking places. We found this to be a nice... More

Lovely old-style café-kiosk in great location to take a break amongst the locals. Coffee is good, prices reasonable. Not surprised to have to wait for table space at busy times.

There's a little kiosk at Balluta Square serving a wide range of drinks and food, everything from bags of crisps to plates of lasagne. The team who run the kiosk are lovely and make a great cappuccino. With beautiful views over Balluta Bay its a great place to stop, have a chat or just watch the world go by.

Lovely old houses were Maltese folk still live despite all the tourism around them. A lovely square with shade and trees, an area to sitt and relax with a nice drink. you can hear the church bell chiming the time. Look round and see some of the older habitations of Malta.
