Salina does not have its own beach although there is a small stretch of shingle beach at nearby Qawra. Both Paradise Bay and Mellieha Bay are not too far to travel if you're looking for magnificent sandy beaches. In fact, Salina Bay is famous for its salt pans which were created by the Knights of St. John back in the 16th Century and whose scent is still very prevalent down by the shoreline.

Things To Do on Salina Holidays

Many of Salina's large hotels are very well equipped with all manner of facilities and attractions. Salina is ideally placed for taking a stroll along the promenade into picturesque St Pauls or enjoying the lively entertainment on offer in Bugibba where, as well as the many fine restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs, you can also go ten pin bowling or enjoy a night out at the cinema. The ferry departing from nearby Paradise Bay will also take you across to the neighbouring island of Gozo which makes for an interesting day trip.


Holidays in Salina are still very much in their infancy when compared to many other Maltese resorts. It is still being developed so if it's culture you're after, a short stroll to the beautiful area and sights around the harbour at St Pauls Bay will be much to your liking.


Most of the entertainment takes place within the well equipped hotels in Salina but you'll need to head for nearby Bugibba and Qawra if you're looking for more varied and tailored nightlife.
