Boasting a sandy beach ideal for sunbathing and family fun, St George's Bay nestles amidst the area of St Julian's and is centrally located to the hotels and entertainment district. With Malta's coast being largely made up of rocky beaches, this is a popular haunt for tourists and locals. St George's Bay is a 'Blue Flag beach' with options for water sports and plenty of cafes and bars leading from the area and into Paceville, its neighbouring holiday resort.
This is a small resort filled with shops at the Bay Street Centre, and hotels, bars and restaurants along with a cinema and bowling alley. Local craft shops, food and wine and a family entertainment centre can be found in and around the Bay Street centre and on the steps leading up the hill through to Paceville which has a much larger selection for the tourist trade.
Besides the sandy beach ideal for sunbathing and water sports, St George's Bay also keeps holiday makers topped up with plenty of shopping and some light entertainment. Though a smaller resort, there are still bars and restaurants for leisurely evenings looking out over the numerous, colourful boats on the shore.
Further afield and visitors have the option to head to neighbouring Paceville considered to be Malta's capital for nightlife and partying. Walking is well within the realms but a bus service operates too.
Being located in the northerly part of St Julian's, visitors can make the most of all of St Julian's offerings such as the numerous restaurants, local entertainment, spectacular coastal views, boat trips, diving, snorkelling and many more water sports.
A day trip to Valletta during a St George holiday is recommended since it's only an 8 km journey . Known as 'The Fortress City' here is where an inspiring array of architecture can be explored, the impressive Grandmaster's Palace, the variety of imposing Military buildings, the Triton Fountain and the stunning water front are popular attractions, to name but a few.
