Pretty Bay

Pretty Bay

The Pretty Bay is next to the city centre of Birzebbuga (or better the city centre is next to the bay). The beach is very beautiful and the water is crystal blue.

Around the beach there are restaurants, cafes, hotels, residential areas and a small playground with football fields, for all ages alike. A small park is situated just off the beach with a very beautiful promenade and seating benches all around. The overall picture is a very beautiful one indeed.

The beach would be the most beautiful of the island, if some factors were not spoiling it:


1. The view is strongly disturbed by Malta International Freeport, which is opposite on one side of the bay.

2. The oil tanks and the pipeline of EneMalta on the other opposite side make things even worse.

3. And finally adding insult to injury there is the tremendous noise of the overhead low flying aircraft, which just took off or about to land on the nearby Malta International Airport runways.


The beach is however unbelievably beautiful. It is the only “real” beach in Malta in the midst of a city. The whole setup gives the beach a certain charm. In addition the buildings are built around the beach in a classical style.

Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Vittoriosa (Birgu) is probably the nicest of the three peninsulas southwards of Valletta. The city was the first settlement around this area. When the Knights of St. John arrived in Malta in 1530 they set up camp in Vittoriosa and started to upgrade the fortifications, including the Fort St. Angelo. After the Great Siege of 1565 they moved to Valletta. Birgu has nowadays a population of 3000 and the fortifications are as impressive as those of Valletta. Behind every corner you can discover something new. The best way to enter the city is through the ‘Couvre Porte’ which was restored in 2002. Above is a modern gate which breaks through the fortification of the ‘Poste de Provence’ and is used as a road for cars.

Blue Grotto

The Blue Grotto is situated south-westwards of Malta, in Wied iz-Zurrieq (Zurrieq’s Valley) on the outskirts of the city Zurrieq. It is worth seeing. The best way to discover the Grotto is via boat. With the boat trip you will enter some of the grottos. The glassy, blue water is especially nice.

Valletta - Capital City of Malta

Valletta (7100 inhabitants) is a unique city. She lies on a peninsula in western Malta. The city possesses enormous fortification. The building of the city started in 1566 and was finished only 10 years after. Named after the Grand Master Jean Parisot de la Vallette.
