Lovely water! I spent the day here when st Julian's street festival was on, and it was a little quieter here, nice to just listen to a little music and chill :)

I really do enjoy Spinola bay, its small, compact and away from hustle and bustle of Paceville. With lots of great eating places and to sit with a glass of wine and watch the sunset over the bay.

A lovely bay; you could sit for hours watching the boats, people walking by, and everybody seems relaxed and friendly. If only someone would do something about the litter. Dozens, no hundreds of empty water bottles floating around; half eaten meals left on the shoreline.... it's a mess and whoever runs the council needs to get a grip on the... More

We were staying in a hotel in St.Juliens,just a short stroll up the road-and all looked forward to our evening stroll along the harbour,to walk off our dinner.The area has such a buzzy happening vibe,so full of life&people partaking in all sorts of social activities.And visually it's stunning-so atmospheric with the wrought iron lanterns&colourful gondola-style boats on the water bringing...

Spinola Bay was just a perfect spot to stay whilst in Malta. We had views over the bay from our hotel and they were spectacular and St Julian's very well located for buses into Valletta, restaurants, shops, supermarket and many hotels to chose from. People were very friendly and overall it was just a fantastic experience. Will definitely return.

Great area to wander around and just soak up the beautiful waterfront views both during the day or at night. Lots of restaurants and bars in the area to choose from, both local and international chains (for the less adventurous) - would recommend a walk around the place.

Lively in the evening with best ice cream parlour. McDonalds and Pizza Hut spoil the local culture. Nice restaurants.
