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.

The little hut here that serves Lemmingtons as they call it is fabulous, we walked every day from the Preluna just to have the cake, sitting outside watching the locals and tourists alike, pity they close out of season.

We observed a Sunday procession from a nearby Cathedral. Very interesting. Suggest to check the local listings for other Churches processions - they are almost every weekend.
