Salina

Situated away from the hustle and bustle of busier tourist areas in Malta, Salina Bay and Salini village are an idyllic holiday destination. The bay is located on the northern coast of Malta and just 3km away from Bugibba and Qawra, Malta’s biggest holiday resorts. The proximity allows visitors to enjoy the nightlife and activities on offer just a short bus ride away, while always retreating back to the peaceful tranquillity of Salina Bay.
View from Salina, Malta

Salina Bay owes its name (‘salty bay’) to its historic saltpans, which date back to the time of the Knights of St. John and were hewn out of the rock at the inner end of the bay. The area has recently been completely renovated, and will soon resume being the main production site of salt in Malta. In fact, in previous harvesting years, the Salina Bay saltpans were known to collect in excess of 4,000 tonnes of coarse sea salt.
Salina Coastline, Malta

The coastline along Salina Bay is truly Mediterranean with clear, bright blue water, altogether a perfect location for snorkelling and rock pooling. The entire coastline stretching to Bahar ic-Caghaq further east is great territory for rambling across coastal paths, taking in the spectacular sea view and then diving into the refreshing Maltese water. And, while swimming off the rocks might not be to everyone’s liking, the sandy beach in Mellieha Bay and water sports facilities in Bugibba and Qawra are only a quick bus ride away.

Even though Salina Bay and Salini village are quite small, they are not all about swimming and salt production. The Salina Catacombs are located up the hill from Salina Bay in the neighbouring village of Naxxar. While the 

catacombs of St. Paul and St. Agatha in Rabat are the better-known sites in Malta, the Salina Catacombs remain an important record of early settlements and burial sites in first few centuries AD.

Nightlife in Salina Bay is very relaxed and quiet, mostly restricted to the hotels and small romantic restaurants that overlook the sea and coastline. However, for a more lively evening, pubs, bars, clubs, amusement arcades, cinemas, and even a casino are located in the neighbouring towns of Bugibba and Qawra to the west. In addition, a short bus or taxi ride to the east takes you to Paceville, St. Julian’s and Sliema, Malta’s largest centre of nightlife.
