Bugibba Beach

Holiday Travel Guide
Bugibba Beach which includes a beach as well as a large group of people

The liveliest enclave of St Paul’s Bay has a special draw, unique for Malta: a beach, with real sand that you can get between your toes.

Splash, stroll and shop at Bugibba, the most active of the resort areas that make up St Paul’s Bay. Its enchanting waterfront attracts visitors from all around and offers excellent views of the area. Enjoy activities outdoors after hours at one of Bugibba’s great nightlife options of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, a cinema and casino and bingo halls.

Along the shore at Bugibba are perfect little spots for you to sunbathe on the rocks like a true Maltese sun-lover. However, this area differs from the area’s generally rocky beaches, with its short strip of manmade sandy seafront for you to enjoy. It’s called Bugibba Perched Beach, because it’s not quite on the sea level. This beach has a Blue Flag award meaning it is safe and high quality. The sea would be beautiful no matter the condition of the shore, but it’s lovely to be able to lie on the warm sand under a beach umbrella. If you prefer to be active, explore wonders beneath the crystal waters by diving or snorkeling, very popular along this strip of Malta’s coast. Watch for pointy sea urchins.

Enjoy a long promenade, common in this part of the world, which locals have always walked along dressed fashionably. Start exploring in the bustling main square, the center of all the action, and continue on to the colorful main tourist strip, Triq It-Turisti, just a few steps away. If many things in Bugibba seem manmade, that’s because the urban spaces have been renovated in recent years. This provides a sleek experience but you’re sure to see little glimpses of historic Malta shining through.

Bugibba is a popular summer residence for politicians and other Maltese VIPs. People come here to socialize and party, resulting in a festive atmosphere.

Children and adults will have an exciting treat at Bugibba Water Park, with plenty of pools and slides for fun on a hot day.

When you’re done exploring the attractions of this exciting part of Malta, sample delicious seafood pulled from the nearby waters.

"Lovely hotel, very clean. Excellent facilities. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Swim up bar was occasionally crowded, maybe guests could/should be encouraged to move away once served and also perhaps it should be an 'adults only' area."
