“Main road spoils the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Spinola is a pretty little bay in St Julian's, largely overlooked by modern apartment blocks and restaurants. The bay has many stereotypical examples of colourful Maltese boats, and the nearby old stone fishing boat houses have been turned into restaurants.

Spinola Palace (further up the hill) is currently under refurbishment. I am sure that, before modernity arrived in Malta, Spinola bay would have been a very picturesque, quiet fishing village. In fact, if you visit the 1927 Restaurant on the edge of the bay, you can see photographs of the area taken during the early 20th century.

Spinola still retains some of its charm, but the main, very busy road, is increasingly a problem - and some of the buildings nearby look tired and worn. A clean-up wouldn't do any harm.
