Aerial View on Saint Julian and Spinola Bay

Spinola Bay

Spinola bay is a quaint little bay in St Julians dotted with traditional and modern buildings, cafés, bars and restaurant. It’s known for its colourful Maltese fishing boats and is a great place to relax and dine. Stroll along the path to Sliema or enjoy eating al-fresco in one of the many restaurants, including Hotel Juliani’s own seafront café – Café Juliani. Boat trips and hop-on hop-off buses are available from the bay, making it a great central location for other trips and exploring the St. Julian’s area. Don’t miss this beautiful bay at night, when the whole seafront comes alive. Spinola bay is a great place to be at the centre of it all, and Hotel Juliani residents can enjoy the bay from their rooftop pool, giving unrivalled views across the Spinola bay and St. Julian’s.

Barrakka Lifts & Valletta Waterfront

The Barrakka Lift links Valletta’s Lascaris Wharf to St. Peter and Paul Bastion and the Upper Barrakka Gardens. It provides access from the Grand Harbour directly to the capital city, Valletta. The lift was originally built in 1905, but was demolished in 1983. The current lift was built in 2012. It’s a welcome rest for visitors whose legs are tired from Valletta’s steps. It’s worth noting that the lift is free to use descending to the harbour, but is 1€ to get you back up.

There are many beautiful restaurants and cafes in Valletta and it’s also the starting point for many tours and boat trips. It’s worth a visit and is an impressive harbour for the magnificent city of Valetta.
