St Pauls Bay Holidays

St Pauls Bay is a tiny yet beautiful town located in the northeast part of Malta. Located just 16 km from the national capital, Valletta, the picturesque township is named after Saint Paul, the harbinger of Christianity in Maltese archipelago. According to the Acts of the Apostles, Saint Paul was shipwrecked and landed at St Pauls Bay while on his voyage from Caesarea to Rome. Although the population of St Pauls Bay is a few thousands, it goes up to six times more during the period from June to September due to massive influx of local as well as foreign tourists, who throng hotels in Bugibba and Qawra.
