Small but perfectly formed, Malta packs a lot into its tiny islands and Bugibba is one of the best for location. One of Malta’s most popular resorts, Bugibba lies between both St Paul’s Bay and Qawra, so it may feel as though you’re staying in more than one resort. As well as a picturesque seafront and promenade‚ Bugibba offers a great choice of cafés, seafood restaurants‚ bars and even a casino. At the St Paul's Bay end of the promenade, you'll find a traditionally picturesque harbour that houses pretty painted boats whilst strolling north will lead you to Qawra with its modern restaurants and designer shops.

Perched, Bugibba’s most popular beach lies in the centre of town. 150 metres of man-made beach, it’s small but it deserves it’s Blue Flag award and is elevated above sea level with wooden jetties that lead out to sea. But there are many small, secluded pebbly beaches and rocky coves sprinkled along the coastline between St Paul’s Bay and Qawra. Spread along a rocky headland, sun-bathers sprawl out on the flat, sun-drenched rocks and piers, occasionally dunking into the ocean. All sorts of boat tours, and even row boats to rent, can be found along the shore, including watersports and scuba-diving.

There are plenty of bars and restaurants in Bugibba but you’re likely to find your favourite around the main square. Serving everything from traditional Maltese meals to Italian favourites and even a cheeky takeaway, there’s a range of cuisine to suit all styles, tastes and budgets. If you want to find the more traditional side to life in Bugibba then head for the small harbour in St Paul’s Bay, where rustic fishing boats bring in the freshest catches. And don't forget to try the traditional Maltese soft drink, Kinnie, which is a bit like orange juice mixed with Campari and likely to become your new favourite holiday tipple.

Only a short walk down the promenade and directly on the seafront, the 14th century St Paulʼs church is well worth a visit. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants on the way if you fancy a pit-stop, whilst the colourful and picturesque town of St Paul’s Bay is practically made for budding photographers. Head in the opposite direction and Qawra hides a history of fascinating Medieval sights along its coastline as well as some of the best views the island has to offer. And, if you’re interested in exploring even further afield, boat tours regularly travel to the Maltese islands of Gozo and Comino.
