St. Julian’s or San Giljan, is located on the Maltese coast, north of Valletta, Malta’s capital. The seaside town is famous for its thriving nightlife, touristic activity and close proximity to Malta’s commercial hubs.
St. Julian’s gives you easy access to beaches like Balluta and Spinola Bay, one of Malta’s most romantic bays and the perfect spots to start a twilight walk along the town’s seafront promenade. The promenade stretches from St. Julian’s all the way to Sliema, Gzira, Ta’ Xbieb and Msida, offering a series of spectacular sights such as the iconic Spinola Palace, a neo-gothic parish church with a carved clock centrepiece on its facade; Manoel Island, a tiny fortified isolotto, and Valletta, the country’s walled capital, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
If you’re in the mood for entertainment, you can head to Paceville, a district in St. Julians famous for its pubs, bars, restaurants and nightclubs. For guests seeking a lap of luxury, St. Julian is also home to the Portomaso Marina, wherein you’ll find Malta’s most refined boutiques and venues.
