Picture perfect fishing village with an abundance of great restaurants. Badas Burgers of Spinola is a must. Take your time to walk from Spinola to Balluta.

We were fortunate to get an outside table on 2 evenings whilst visiting Malta. We loved the food and watching the people parading along the harbour. We will be back next time we visit.

Spinola Bay, apart from being picturesque, is the beginning of your night out in Malta's nicest area. There is a wide selection of restaurants to suit any palate or budget. From McDonalds to my favourite Gululu. Just a short walk up the hill is Paceville, Malta's premier centre for nightlife.

My idea of a 'bay' is something with sand that takes a bit of time to walk around. Spinola Bay is like quite a few in Malta - no sand and you can walk around it in 5 minutes. Lots of little boats so it's more like a small harbour with some nice pubs, bars and cafes around. A nice... More

An old fishing port lying in the most beautiful part of St Julian's surrounded by restaurants and bars. Exquisite beauty in the evning when all these places are lit and their reflections in the bay dazzle the spectator. Be there also in the summer months for the jousting competitions performed on long boats. Truly enjoyable.

Super atmosphere, boats bobbing in the bay, attractive eating places around the bay and a promonade to safely walk around. Lovely in the day but particularly attractive at night. Feels safe and relaxed. Not noisy or rowdy.
