Wandering to nearby areas of St Julian's we enjoyed the Spinola Bay area. Lots of benches for a rest and the local people were friendly.

I like this place lots to do and see some good restaurants and pubs in the vacinity from top end to fast food chains. Good meeting point and an ideal place to get buses to other parts of the Island.

We were staying nearby and often ventured here as there are a number of nice restaurants and pleasant bars. Obviously a tourist spot, but worth visiting if you are in the area.

We loved Spinola Bay. We enjoyed so many other parts of the island, including neighbouring bays but this was our favourite. We sat watching the boats, enjoying the sun, sometimes from a waterside bench, sometimes from a bar or cafe, sometimes walking along. We never...More

Nearest would be St Georges Bay. Sand is a bit thick as its man made but looks OK and nice bars and food places close by. Spinola bay would be no good for swimming
