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.

Wonderful place to go have good food, drinks and incredible bay promenade. It gets super crowded in the summer but is really an incredible place to see both day and night.

Watching the boats bob, the waves crash and the wee fishermen trying their luck on the shore is a lovely way to spend some time. Good bus service and lots of pubs and restaurants. The LOVE statue and padlocks are a nice touch. A great place to people watch.

A great mix of fishing village and busy town. Plenty of places to eat and drink. We were lucky enough to visit on a lovely sunny day and this place gets the very most of the sun

It was really nice to see how the locals get together in the evenings; just chatting & chilling out by the water

I stayed at the Hilton just a couple of hundred metres from Spinola bay. The bay is very quaint and attractive but with lots of bars, cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes. The bay (known localy as St Julien's bay) is gorgeous with lots of little multicoloured boats. It's an excellent place to relax with a drink or have... More
