St. Paul’s Bay, located in the north of the island, is Maltas’ largest tourist resort, and is popular with all types of holidaymaker, from families and couples, to single travellers and groups. Originally a small picturesque fishing village, St. Paul’s Bay has now developed to include the neighbouring resort towns of Bugibba and Qawra, and offers a good choice of nearby sandy beaches. St. Paul’s is famous for being the spot where the Apostle Paul was shipwrecked, bringing Christianity to the island of Malta.

The village of St. Paul’s is quiet and traditional, retaining an authentic charm with its’ colourful harbour filled with boats, and the residential Old Town. Its’ sister resort of Bugibba is a hive of tourist activity, with plenty of high-rise accommodation and a thriving seafront promenade, whilst Qawra next door is slightly more upmarket and home to newer hotels and apartments, and an array of smart shops. Facing St. Paul’s is the quieter up-and-coming resort of Xemxija, with great views over the bay and the surrounding countryside, and a popular resort for the locals. There are no beaches along the rocky coastline of St. Paul’s itself, just beach clubs and lidos, but some of the best sandy beaches on the island are close by. The largest sandy beach on Malta, Mellieha Bay, is a few kilometers away, and is family-friendly with shallow blue waters and lifeguards on duty, as is Golden Bay, with its’ reddish sand and watersports on offer.

Malta is both an outstanding summer vacation destination as well as a living microcosm of Mediterranean history. Few people realize or expect that on such a small cluster of islands one can come across such a wealth of historic traditions. Besides archeological and architectural gems Malta's great attraction are the numerous village "festas" falling mostly during summer. These festivities in honor of the village patron saint are characterized by band marches, colourful street decorations, spectacular firework displays and a religious procession where the statue of the patron saint is carried through the village streets. At the same time, Malta's many beaches are an obvious place to spend the time waiting for the celebrations to begin or to have a break from the rich historical tapestry of the islands.

Where on Earth is Malta?

By Frank L. Scicluna
It's not unusual to get a sort of a puzzled expression on many faces when you mention the word Malta. You expect some people to say - "I've heard of Malta or I have met a Maltese but I don't exactly know where or what it is." If you ask them to have a guess, they might place Malta in Africa, or maybe in the Middle East.GEOGRAPHY

It's such a small place. It is just an archipelago of islands about halfway between the coasts of Sicily and North Africa. Set in the clear blue Mediterranean Sea, the Maltese islands are the most southerly European country. The archipelago consists of five islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino, together with two other uninhabited islands Cominetto and Filfla. The total area is approximately 316 sq kms (Malta 246 sq km, Gozo 67 sq km, Comino 2.7 sq km). The longest distance in Malta from North West to South East is about 27 km, with 14.5 kms width in an East - West direction. The Islands are only 90 km south of Sicily and 290 km from the northern coast of Africa.


The strategic position of Malta, Gozo and Comino has made these Mediterranean islands a crossroad of history and a bone of contention. The powers of Europe's past knew it well as a stepping-stone between Europe and North Africa. Involved in Malta's history are the Stone-Age and Bronze-Age people, Romans and Phoenicians, Arabs, Normans and Carthaginians, Castilians, French and British; from whom Malta became independent in 1964. Napoleon Bonaparte did unutterable damage in an only six-day occupation; and Malta stood firm against Hitler despite massive bombing during World War II, deservedly earning the nation the George Cross medal from King George VI (April 1942) and depicting it on the left hand corner of the flag.


The Knights of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, a religious and multinational order of soldiers and hospitallers, have had a significant influence in the history of Malta. You might recognise the Maltese Cross, which is the insignia of the Knights of Malta. And you've heard of the Maltese falcon—the Mediterranean peregrine falcon—which was the annual rent required by Roman Emperor Charles V when he donated the Island to the Knights in 1530.

The Knights were not altogether pleased with the gift of these little islands, which were no kind of natural paradise. The Knight found the land is rugged, dry and rocky, though these days barely in evidence in its natural form because Malta is one of the world's most densely populated countries in the world (population - 366 000). It takes no more than approximately an hour to drive between any two points on the main island and that is achieved without ever breaking out into wide-open spaces; the island is virtually solid with jumbles of buildings built of native white limestone.

The Knights of St John of Jerusalem, however, left the most physical mark on Malta, after successfully defended it from the power-hungry Turkish Ottoman Empire in 1565. The Knights were in charge of the island for 270 years, building magnificent churches and lavish monuments to themselves—each nationality had its own palace (AUBERGES) —before losing power to the Napoleon Bonaparte and the French empire in 1889.
