Xemxija Holidays

Xemxija is a resort town in Malta. Located on the west side of St. Paul's Bay, this picturesque tourist destination is the smallest township on Maltese archipelago. Although Xemxija began to achieve its fame as a tourist favorite in 1980s and 90s, the earliest human civilization on the place dates back to the prehistoric age. Xemxija is located just 19 km northeast of Valletta, the Maltese capital.

Amazing Xemxija

Xemxija is the gateway to beautiful sandy beaches of Mellieha Bay to the north and Golden Bay to the west. Literally meaning sunny in local language, Xemxija is a quiet resort set in the middle of charming countryside and scenic valleys.  The small but picturesque small fishing harbor makes this township in Malta quite attractive. The bars, restaurants, pubs, and the enticing nightlife of St Paul's Bay, Buġibba, and Qawra are within walking distance from Xemxija. The resort is extremely close to Malta’s best beaches and private lidos. The hillock and valleys surrounding Xemxija is home to many Punic tombs, silos, ancient temple, and megalithic stones.
