Malta Bus

Public bus services in Malta operate regularly to most parts of Malta from City Gate, Valletta. Many of the Malta buses are old and quite a treat to ride in. However, they are incredibly cheap! Preparing small change in advance is highly recommended. All the towns & villages can be reached by bus, and there are frequent connections from practically all holiday resorts to Valletta. Bus services in Gozo are less efficient. They operate from the bus station, Main Gate Street, Victoria. However some routes have infrequent timings and cater for the needs of local people rather than tourists. Current timetables are displayed at the bus station (where there is a dispatcher’s office), but they list many bewildering variations, with services reduced during Winter, then altered in Summer (when workers finish early). Moreover, on some routes, the last bus from Victoria terminates at its destination and does not complete the normal circuit back to the bus station. The no 25 bus, which runs from Victoria to Mgarr Harbour in conjunction with the Malta-Gozo ferry, can be recommended. It departs from Mgarr soon after the arrival of each ferry and sets off from Victoria 30 minutes before sailing...

Bugibba, Qawra & St Paul’s Bay

The architecture does not inspire, but Bugibba is probably the cheapest place to stay on the island. Although somewhat cut off from Valletta and from other main parts of the island, its facilities are such that many of its visitors are happy to stay put. The emphasis is on bars, pubs, discos and restaurants (mainly of the pasta, pizza and hamburger variety). A lively promenade offers bathing and a variety of water sports, including paragliding. On summer evenings the streets teem with people and music blares from late-night bars. Daytime activities include boat trips to the islands of Comino and Gozo. Another popular tour is the Underwater Safari; as you steam around St Paul’s bay portholes below sea-level allow you to view the world of marine fauna and flora, as well as a couple of shipwrecks. Qawra Together Qawra and Bugibba now occupy almost the entire peninsula on the east side of St Paul’s Bay. More or less merging with Bugibba, Qawra is more restrained than its noisy neighbour, with a choice of slightly more superior accommodation. Hotels and apartments have been mushrooming here since the 1970s. Among the hotels here is the New Dolmen, named after the prehistoric remains which stand, somewhat incongruously, in its gardens. Like Bugibba, there are plenty of bars, caf’s and restaurants. The rocky beach as a restaurant and plenty of facilities for watersports...

Mellieha & Popeye Village

Perched high on a spur, the village of Mellieha (Maltese for salt pans), overlooks the sweeping expanse of its bay and beach. It is a busy shopping center with more character than the sprawling resorts to its east. The steep main street, lined with grocery shops, small bars and restaurants, caters for local residents as well as holidaymakers. Besides hosting the largest sandy beach in Malta, Mellieha has a range of self-catering accommodation, including luxury villas (one area with sea views is known as The Millionaire’s Valley). Popeye Village, (or Sweethaven) at Anchor Bay was built as the set for Robert Altman’s 1980 film, Popeye. The uninspiring ramshackle village by the sea consists of 17 houses, all made of wood imported from Canada and the Netherlands. Amenities include a souvenir shop, snack bar, beach facilities, a small fun park and a film about the making of Popeye. Boat trips are available during the summer at no additional...
