Turn up the heat with a trip to Bugibba on the northern tip of Malta; it’s one of the most popular holiday destinations on the island. This bustling town may be small, but it has plenty of personality, with its lively main square and charming tavernas. It’s picturesque, too, with a pretty waterfront and contemporary hotels. There’s also a charming beach where you can sit back and relax in the sunshine. And as it’s part of the broader St Paul’s Bay area, which is also made up of St Paul’s and Qawra, you’ll find all kinds of water sports adventures going on nearby. You’ll be ready for drinks and dinner at one of Bugibba’s many welcoming establishments when you get back to town.
Things to do
Bugibba is a firm favourite among travellers to Malta, and it’s easy to see why. Tucked between St Paul’s and Qawra in the stunning St Paul’s Bay, you’ll feel like you’re staying in more than one resort. A stunning waterside promenade runs across the three towns, and Bugibba has its own small beach, too. You’ll also find a quaint harbour here, filled with pretty painted boats that add a burst of colour to already charming scenery. Don’t forget to bring your camera, as this part of Malta is perfect for budding photographers. If you want to see somewhere new, why not take a trip over to one of Malta’s islands?

If you’re a scuba diver, or feel like learning while you’re away, head to one of the town’s dive centres and book an exciting trip. If you’d rather stay dry, go on a boat trip across the bay and see the impressive statue that dominates St. Paul’s Island.
Spend the day sightseeing at 14th century St. Paul’s Church, watching the kids splash around at Bugibba Water Park as you explore the promenade, or just relaxing at the beach.

There’s something to suit all manner of budgets, whether you want to settle down for a long meal or eat a sunset takeaway on a bench.
