Holidays in St Julian’s land you in the middle of one of Malta’s most vibrant towns. Located on the east of the island it boasts an excellent nightlife, with bars, clubs and restaurants that spill out on to the streets until the early hours of the morning. For centuries this was a quiet fishing village and while it has become much livelier in recent years, it still retains a portion of its old world charm. Couples can enjoy exploring the winding streets and attractive harbour, replete with traditional blue and yellow “luzzu” fishing boats, while nearby St George’s Bay provides a beach experience in the heart of the town.
Just 15 minutes’ drive to the south is Malta’s capital, Valletta, while 20 minutes to the east is the charming city of Mdina. This ease of access makes St Julian’s an excellent choice as a base to explore the island.
Luxury holidays in St Julian’s give you the option to explore a cosmopolitan capital, wander around a bustling harbour or simply relax by the pool with a good book.
