VISIT SPINOLA BAY FOR A PERFECT SUMMER EVENING
Within the vibrant seaside town of St Julian’s lies Spinola. Its calm waters decorated with fishing boats are a reminder of its former years as a tranquil fisherman’s bay. Along the water’s edge, restaurants and bars offer a calm setting for relaxing summer evenings by the sea. The promenade makes for a pleasant walk around the bay and continues on to Sliema and beyond. Here Richard England’s celebrated Love sculpture is designed in an inverted fashion in order that the letters appear upright when reflected in the water below.
Spinola Palace stands as a piece of history in what is now a thriving tourist destination. Built in the 17th century by Fra Paolo Rafael Spinola, the palace is an impressive example of Baroque architecture. Once a military hospital and even a museum of modern art, today the palace is used as the headquarters for the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean. Nearby Spinola garden is a haven of vines and an oasis of peace and tranquillity amidst the surrounding hustle and bustle. Bus route TD9, provides a direct route from Valletta, but Spinola’s central location makes it easily accessible from many locations across Malta.

The colourful boats and the restaurants surrounding the bay will be the perfect accompaniment to your romantic nights. ❤️🍝🍷😉 📹 Video by @farukdoan 🔜 More hidden content at: https://www.wowmalta.com.mt #malta #wowmalta #gozo #summer #sea #travel #stjulians #visitmalta #comino #valletta #malta🇲🇹 #travelphotography #maltaphotography #malta2017 #beach #gozophotography #visitmalta #gozoisland #visitgozo #maltalovers #maltagozo #igers #maltagram #picoftheday #photooftheday #travelphotography #traveladdict
