This small bay was very geared to the young. A man made beach was full everyday, but made a change from the rocks around Malta, Plenty of good dining and shopping in the Bay centre

This is one of my favourite areas in Malta and I keep coming back to it to have coffee, eat and just hang out. Wide variety of restaurants at all price points. Really cool place and the Irish pub, The Dubliner serves a really good pint of Guinness.

Very pretty bay/harbor with brightly painted boats. The harbor is not crowded like a marina so it's a very peaceful atmosphere. Lots of bars/cafes/restaurants with outside seating overlooking the bay. Definitely worth a visit.

Spinoza bay is a must, there is no need to describe it in order to attract attention, it is simply one of those places that should not be missed, the atmosphere is fantastic and it looks so genuine among many fakes.

This bay was a stones throw away from our hotel and looks lovely in the evening when the harbour lights are on and the throngs of people appear. There is a good choice of restaurants to eat in but could do with a couple more bars. It as always busy when we came here, and although the road is close... More

Spinola bay has a long history and although it has been extensively redeveloped, bits of its past still poke through. The bay is full of small boats. It's just a shame that road runs right along the shoreline.

We stayed in Spinola Bay for a week. I found it to be a great location to to stay with easy access to Valletta and the Ferries to take you to places like Gozo. Spinola has a beautiful promenade which stretches for miles and does be busy with walkers/runners in the morning.This side of the street is spotlessly clean but... More
