Those of you that know the Mediterranean island of Malta will already know the beautiful scenery and the charming character the island has to offer. Almost 400,000 people live on the island of Malta- the most of which live in the capital city of Valletta. In high season the island is populated by nearly the same amount of tourists. Whether you are travelling as an individual, treating yourself to a luxury holiday or just looking for a relaxing stay, Malta has something for everyone. The breath-taking countryside and the fascinating history of this former trade centre will make for an unforgettable holiday experience.
If you are travelling to Malta as a treat or to indulge yourself in the nightlife- you have come to the right place in St. Julians. Originally this location was a small fishing village on the Spinola Bay on the north of the island. San Ġiljan as it is called by the locals has developed into an ever growing holiday destination over the last 30 years. Several affluent Maltese residents have moved to St. Julians due to its beautiful location and the huge potential the town has to offer with the opening up of its tourism industry. Today you can still find the occasional traces of the old fishing village such as the colourful boats that reside in St. Julians for the most part of the year.
Meanwhile this sleepy town has become a true “freetime paradise”. Bars, pubs, restaurants and hotels in all price ranges characterise the image of St. Julians. On evenings and weekends even those that live outside of the town make the journey into St. Julians in their hired car to enjoy the entertainment. The amusement quarter Paceville, also known as “Sin City” has around 350 clubs and pubs which are great for the visitors. Whether you want to play a hand of poker in the local casino or whether you prefer to enjoy the cool water in the Splash & Fun Park- St. Julians will definitely fulfil your desires. In case the excitement is too much for you, we recommend that you visit the nearby beach on St. George’s Bay that can be reached in less than 10 minutes in your rental car.
Of course the cultural aspects of St. Julians do not hide behind those that can be found in the centre of Valletta. Visit the St. Julians Tower, a watch tower that was built in the times of the Knights of St. John. From here you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the town. Take an excursion to the Baroque palace “Spinola Palace” – the former summer residence of the bishop of Spinola. Although you will find many restaurants here, the architecture and the particular charm of this resort has been very well maintained. Apart from the closely situated resort of Sliema that is practically St. Julians neighbouring town. Malta has more to offer than a wide variety of free time and entertainment activities. You can use your hired car to take a sight seeing trip around the island, visit Mdina- the oldest town in Malta where you can find the Temples of Hagar Qim and Mnajdra or the World Cultural Heritage Centre of Valletta. It goes without saying that Malta has breathtaking countryside where you can hike and horse-ride as well as take part in every imaginable type of water activity. You can even discover the surrounding areas in your hired car.
For those of you who enjoy an active night-life or want to improve your language in one of the many language schools, St. Julians is really the best place for you. The resort offers all the possible means of entertainment that you could ever wish for and every time with that special Mediterranean flair.
