Saint Paul's Bay
Saint Paul's Bay, with its adjoining villages and countryside, is one of the most historic areas of Malta. St. Paul was reputedly shipwrecked here in AD 60 and is honoured by a statue on St. Pauls' islands and the St. Paul Shipwreck Church. Also to be found nearby are the remains of ancient temples, tombs, caves, 'cart ruts', catacombs, beehives, Roman baths, Knights' towers and much more.
The lively resorts of Bugibba and Qawra attract thousands of visitors to their hotels, promenades, bars, restaurants and beaches, most of which are rocky but boasting crystal clear water.
