Old and romantic - so full of history. Old fishing vessels mix with new yachts in the harbour and cats meander waiting for catch to come in. Catch lands fresh on the restaurant tables - so many to choose from. Great to wander around whatever the weather night or day.

A lovely place to walk, eat or just relax in the sunshine. It is good just to sit there and do nothing. There is a lot of activity around the bay, yet it is peaceful by the water and very picturesque . You will always want to go back.

Spinola Bay (close to Balluta Bay) in St Julian's is a small, pretty bay with the typical Maltese fishing boats anchored. There are lots of good restaurants here to accommodate all tastes!

One of my favourite bays in the world, gorgeous views of boats and restaurant lights, safe for a jog or walk along the promenade, restaurants are amazing, staff are friendly, you can pop into cathedrals along your walk, must have a photo at the Love reflection :)

We loved it around Spinola Bay - even though we were there in December so it was a bit quiet. Lovely area, great sea views and good surrounding restaurants. What's not to love?

Beautiful bay with lots of bars and restaurants overlooking. Nice to stroll along the waterfront and watch the boats and the occasional fisherman on the 5he shore. Nice to sit and relax on a sunny day looking out to sea.

With so many pubs and restaurants on this bay you're bound to find the right angle for you of this scenic bay! This little bit of bay reminded me so much of Alexandria, Egypt. Luxury yachts and little colourful fishing boats moored with an amazing backdrop of blue sea and sky. At night it's just as magical as lights begin... More
