Explore St Julian's
St Julian’s is a rapidly growing seaside town, located on the northern coast of Malta. Not far from the island’s capital at Valletta, this popular beach destination offers a rare blend – catering well to the increasing numbers of tourists, while managing to maintain a rich sense of history and tradition.
As such, holidays in St Julian’s are likely to have a wide appeal. There are plenty of people who come here just for the seafront areas, but those in search of a little more culture will be able to enjoy a window onto Malta’s hidden history. You can visit the Old Parish Church during your stay, a picturesque island landmark dating back to the year 1580! Alternatively, you could get involved in one of St Julian’s colourful festas. Time your visit for the last Sunday of either August or July, where you’ll be able to experience the unique Maltese festivities, held in honour of namesake Saint Julian and ‘Our Lady of Monte Carmel’. Then again, you could simply spend your time here lounging around by the water’s edge, sampling barbequed seafood or sipping cocktails in the sunset.
Fun and Games in a Maltese Paradise
There will be plenty to keep you occupied, here in the resort town of St Julian’s. Many people will no doubt find themselves drawn to the seafront, and it’s here that you’ll find the highest concentration of tourists. No surprise really, considering the fine stretches of golden sand which shelve gently into the warm Mediterranean Sea. If you were looking for swimming and sunbathing, bars and cafés during your beach holiday to Malta, then you’ll certainly find them here at St Julian’s.
However, St Julian’s is more than your average Mediterranean resort. While you’ll find everything on offer here that you might expect from the standard beach resort, at St Julian’s your holiday will be set against a backdrop of traditional honey-coloured houses, lavish gardens and picturesque ports, all imbued with a rich sense of Maltese culture.
From the harbour you’ll find a range of colourful boats offering tours of the coastline – enjoy a peaceful cruise on a traditional Maltese trawler or tag along behind a modern speedboat with a pair of water skis! The crystal clear water also offers superb opportunities for snorkelling and scuba diving.
There’s a fabulous nightlife on offer, too – head to the Paceville district to find a vibrant mixture of bars and restaurants, cafés and nightclubs. The cuisine on offer here ranges from true Maltese specialties, to an extraordinarily broad range of international flavours. There’s a casino over at Dragonara Point or, for an exciting excursion, you could take a cruise across the bay to the island’s capital at Valletta.
