This is a very lovely bay that has retained some of its original character despite the development that has engulfed it. Well worth visiting to just walk around or dine in one of the many good restaurants.

For a short break in Malta this location gives you a bit of everything. Easy transport with good bus routes, a busy area with lots of bars and clubs, some lovely resturants, a good base!

Great for a day or night walk! Would definitely visit this bay again! Restaurants on the main road are not great though so a coffee or ice cream would be ideal!

Not the most obvious bay to visit, but in its own way it is quite scenic. It is surrounded by eateries overlooking the bay. From McDonalds, Pizza Hit, Wagamamas to Zest, Peppinos, Bianco's, Cafe Cuba, and many more. They all seem to rub along well together and you should be able to find something to suit you.

Lots of restaurants and bars that take you away from the loud music and crowded bars.Most of the bars have facilities to drink outside. There is more variety of restaurants in Spinola Bay offering a variety of different cuisines.

Stayed round the corner. Has local and international food options, the path by the bay is great for walking and just sitting, the church and theother buildings qith Hotel Cavalieri light up at night. Lovely. Lots of bars and restaurant options.
