Where Is The Malta Nightlife?
The small island of Malta is based between Sicily and the North-African coast. Most of the action happens along the east coast like in Paceville, in the town of St. Julian’s, famously popular with young party-goers. Most of the bars and clubs there are based around Paceville Piazza. With the average pint costing €2.50, you’re in for an experience that’s kind to your wallet. Still, there are many other hotspots dotted around the coast like Sliema and Gianpula Village – you’re really spoilt for choice. There’s also Valletta, the capital, just a few minutes drive from Paceville. Basically, whether you’re looking to party hard or chill out, Malta has a bit of everything
Malta International Airport is about 6.5 miles from Paceville. You can either take a bus transfer which will take about an hour, or you can spend €15 to €25 on a taxi, roughly a 20 minute trip – whichever is the best choice for you
Malta By Day
Full of culture and stunning views, there’s always something to do in Malta. Paceville is filled with beaches like the popular St George’s. Enjoy golden sands, picturesque views as well as activities like windsurfing and scuba diving in the warm Mediteranean sea. Even spend the day at one of the beach clubs like The Exiles or Merkanti if you fancy relaxing all day with a cocktail
You can find almost anything at Bay street shopping centre in St. Julian’s, including beauty salons and an arcade. There’s also the trendy town of Valletta, perfect for a day out shopping or spotting some of the spots featured on Game of Thrones!
