What can one say? Stunning! The imposing church and the wonderful sea below it, nice promenade to walk around on and numerous restaurants to eat. A bit trafficky due to the cars, but otherwise it's a great outing and a nice walk between Sliema and St. Julian's .

The square gets its name Balluta from the local name of the tree which was abundant in this area. The iconic Balluta Buildings were built in 1928 and are now listed and protected by MEPA. 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

Balluta square has several transformation over the years.. last summer, while walking on the promenade.. we seem to end up in this square for coffee or just a rest. It's also a nice point to meet up and somehow, one finds a place to park there and around. Recently, some new cafes and restaurants opened up.. interesting places like the... 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.
