Avril, I spend most of my time in the Sailors arms for food and Cisk / G&T
This predictive tosh, it is Tourista Street, Qwara.
Derek, have you tried the Queen Victoria pub on Tourist attractions Street? Very reasonable prices. If you do on karaoke night say hi to Steve.
Hi Dee. Many thanks ,Just as I thought I have checked up on Internet, will stick with Bugibba for now .
It depends on what you want and for how many people? It's mainly apartments in Senglea and in Birgu and the prices have shot up since last year, (like most apartments in and around Valletta). To be honest, we're slowly being squeezed out of many places due to this and there are only two of us! A few apartments we have stayed in before are sadly beyond our budget now... one was way over in St.Julians, a one bed apartment that suited us and our budget, but when we tried to book it for the following year the price had doubled! It depends on your budget, but Buggiba may still be your best option as it will be much cheaper. Senglea is very quiet and there are only three bus routes from the centre. You do have the option of the ferry that goes from Birgu to Valletta and back, but that means you have to walk all the way round to get to it.
Hi Dee. What is the accommodation like in that area is it very pricy? as I stay in Bugibba when visiting having got to know people there and it's easy to get the buses to the north of the islands.
We'll be staying in Senglea later this year, Derek, so perfect for any Superyacht and cruise ship spotting. I'll have the choice of many good places and street levels from which i can view them. I honestly cannot wait!
Hi Dee. I too like to spend time in Vittoriosa and Senglea just walking through all the streets and past the yachts as well as a visit to the fort I found the garden in the gully on my last visit as well and took a lot of photos, one of the stairs to no where tried to post them but the wrong one came up.
Not long returned from a month in Malta, a visit to Senglea & Vittoriosa (Birgu) marina's is a must..... some good restaurants at Senglea Marina and NOT expensive. Just a warning.... on Mondays most of the restaurants & Kiosks in Senglea don't open. Enjoy.
I have, Derek..many times. In fact it's my favourite part of our holidays. I spend many a happy hour walking up and down to see the Superyachts close up. I've seen a lot of them all the years we've been to Malta. My favourite story is when I got talking to three local guys who were stood near the back of the 'mother ship' Intrepid. You should have seen the look on their faces when I explained what she was used for, etc. I don't think they expected a woman tourist to know those things. lol I asked which Superyacht she belonged to, but they said they couldn't tell me as it was a secret, so I went back to the apartment in Birgu to look on the ship map and saw the yacht 'Infinity' heading towards, Malta. I wanted to go back to the three guys to tell them her name, that would have been fun.. but we had a bus to catch. lol btw.. you get a good view of the Superyachts up in the Fort..
Hi Dee . Been doing your research, have you walked along the dock and seen them close up. Sometimes the crew are on hand and have a chat, the fort is worth a visit, the views from the top worth the effort,
Superyachts Left to Right: Kingdom5-KR (owned by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal), Ocean Pearl, Heureka, Idyllwild, Sarissa, Ellen and Sister Act. Samar (complete with helicopter) left this morning.
Hi folks. I see all the boats are out, must be the holiday fortnight! !
