St. Paul's Bay is situated in the North East of the island of Malta, 16 km from the capital city Valletta. The localities of Burmarrad, Qawra, Bugibba, Xemxija, Mselliet, San Martin and part of Bidnija, Mistra and Ghajn Tuffieha form part of the San Pawl il-Bahar. It is one of Malta’s main tourist accommodation areas which is attractive I its own right as a promenade and summer residence for foreigners and locals alike. Although the town is a modern tourist area there are some very pretty natural highlights close by. Heading north there is Mistra Bay, its headland and St Paul's Island. Going west and crossing the island towards Gnejna Bay and Golden Bay is the scenic Wardija Ridge.
