St. Julian's

Just north of Valletta (Il-Belt Valletta), St Julian's (San Ġiljan) is one of Malta's main tourist destinations, developed into one of the island's most popular nightlife and entertainment spots, its unique views are of extraordinary beauty.

Originally a small port town located between Spinola Bay and Balluta Bay, through the years St. Julian's developed as an exciting key reference point for tourism in Malta, its offer meets even the most demanding needs, hotels of quality, restaurants and fashionable nightclubs are scattered everywhere but mainly located in the Paceville district, the lively heart of the nightlife area. But St. Julian's is also a great destination for relaxing holidays away from the busy chaos of the city center, an unique experience will be for locals and tourists to breath fresh air on a golden sand beach with a blue sky and the entire Spinola Bay in the background while enjoying the sun or to walk along the elegant seaside promenade (that reaches the nearby city of Sliema) and be completely enraptured by the beauty of a multicoloured sunset; shined brightly at night, St. Julian's offers the unique opportunity to experience a romantic dining under the stars with spectacular views over the bay...The city still keeps intact its origins of picturesque port town jutting into the Mediterranean Sea, animated by the coloured traditional Maltese fishing boats (Il-Luzzu).

St. Julian's boasts a number of must see tourist attractions, such as the Spinola Palace, a masterpiece of Latin architecture built in 1658 by the Italian knight Giovanni Spinola and located in the heart of the Paceville district, the old parish church that was pulled down, reconstructed anew in 1593, rebuilt and much more decorated than the previous one in 1730, or the breathtaking views from Villa Dragonara, today Dragonara Casino, on the headland of St George's Bay; as St. Julian's enjoys idyllic weather conditions year-round, it is a haven for water sports enthusiasts, diving, snorkeling, swimming, parasailing, wakeboarding while enjoying magnificent views of the Mediterranean will offer moments of pure emotions.

    Hello Capture Sam,
    My wife and I watched the men running up the pole in Spinola Bay 2 weeks ago. We did see one man grab the flag on the end after many attempts ..... I resisted the urge myself.
    Had a great week and some great food.
    Regards ........ Gary

    22aug19--Every year, on the afternoon of the last Sunday in August, brave young men from all over Malta compete in the traditional game of “gostra”, trying to run all the way to the top of a long greasy pole and snatch one of the three prizes. A wooden pole measuring about 10 meters long was mounted on a coal barge and towed to harbor towns and seaside villages around the Maltese coast, where it was smeared with grease and animal fat. Brave local men would try to run up the pole and reach one of the symbolic flags at the top in order to claim a prize. Today, the traditional game is only held in the towns of Msida and Spinola Bay, in honor of St. Joseph and St. Julian.
    EnJoy EnJoy Thanks John G for the heads up.

    July 6th today, but St Julian's looks very empty. The new traffic layout looks finished but very little traffic anyway.
    Will be back here in a few weeks with my wife so will see first hand...... Can't wait.
    Does anyone know if Balluta bay still has a "beach"

    Road work to be complete by next week. I think the major problem is further up St George's Road towards the Wenbley Motors Garage

    The building is suppose to attract the higher end of the tourist trade: but don't get me going I tend not to agree with how Malta is "developing"

    10 .05.19 Sun is what Malta has left sadly, nothing else. Looking at this webcam, it looks like a ghetto. Build build build, no planning, and looks like one huge mess. I guess this type of mess will still attract the low end type of tourists, and this is what the new Malta has to offer. Very sad indeed in what it has become.

    Agreed Derek, I 've seen this happening at the St George Beach ... unfortunately as there is no beach here, it just kept drifting around and I assume the tide took it back to the open sea.
