Bugibba is a very lively town with many bars, restaurants and small shops. It's competitively priced with the cost of a 2 course meal and drinks around 20 Euros per person. It has a tourist road train, an open top bus service, an Aquarium, a classic car museum but, only a very small man made sandy beach. There are many areas to rent sunbeds and sunshades on the coast from about 5 Euros. The town has its own small jetty where you can book trips to Gozo or Comino.<br /> <br /> A very good local and island wide bus service, however it is very busy on the busses, cost is cheap a weeks traveller card will cost 21 Euros for 7 full days travel - any bus and destination as many busses as you like, unlimited. It's not very hilly more like a couple steep slopes in the area but wheelchair users and less able bodied people may find it's not ideal. Very good over all.

Bugibba is centrally situated for travel to all Island and Gozo. Local bus is cheap but 12 miles could be 25 minutes to hour and quarter depending on time of day. No beaches worth while from English point of view, Mellieha biggest but that's very small compared to, say, Gower or Cornish sand beach. Temperatures average 30C but warnings to stay inside for locals at 37 and up. With no humidity and near sea ok but anywhere else a nightmare. Tours are costly, especially with a family, as you get near the square eating prices rise, what's €7.50 400 yards away doubles!

Suits me as center of Island. Busses, frequent and cheap, only small island and if you use tourist times ie 9.30 to 11.00 expect too many people to fit bus. Go before 9am Valleta any service 3/4 hour perhaps faster. Later look at hour and a quarter. New fast service LD busses for summer - limited stop - Valleta 1/2 hour one I used. Marsaslokk about 3/4 hour, via Valleta perhaps 2 hours or more. Can be done by mini bus specials Sunday €6 from Mary's opposite Carrafour/Trolleys near San Antonio. Hotel pick up 9, back before 1pm. Enjoy. Both these hotels, San Anton and Santa Maria have resident tour operators.

We've been visiting Bugibba for 20 years now and have seen plenty of changes in that time, mostly but not all for the better and the resort keeps improving with new family orientated developments year after year, plus the Maltese people make us Brits feel so welcome. There are plenty of trips to go on if you want to get to know the Maltese Islands better and they now have a great bus service if you want to explore Malta and Gozo under your own steam. Can't wait to get back

Beaches

Bugibba has a long promenade running along the eastern coast of St Pauls Bay. The waters are deep and clear and ideal for swimming, snorkelling and diving. Indeed there is a choice of diving centres in the resort for equipment hire and PADI certified courses. For sunbathing, there is a small man-made beach and plenty of areas with flat rocks which are perfect for basking in the sun.

Things to Do

There are 2 harbours in Bugibba and boarding at least one boat trip during your holiday is a must. Popular trips include the Valetta harbour tours and cruises to the island of Comino, the Blue Lagoon and the island of Gozo.

Children will enjoy splashing around at the Bugibba Water Park, which has all sorts of colourful showers, jets and water cannons. It is open from June to September and conveniently located on the promenade, close to Bugibba Square. A larger water park with slides and lazy river etc, can be found at Splash & Fun (approx 6km away).

An easy way to get your bearings and learn a little about the resort is to jump on the land train that runs around the seafront of Bugibba and St Paul's Bay and also ventures into the side streets.

Out and About

A stroll along the promenade in Bugibba will lead you to the resort of Qawra to the east, or the old town of St Pauls Bay to the west. There are many shops, bars, discos and restaurants in Bugibba, along the promenade and throughout the resort. For a vibrant evening atmosphere, you need venture no further than Bugibba Square. Alternatively catch up with a movie at the 7 screen Empire Cinema Complex.

The best shops are probably to be found in Valletta, which also hosts a daily market (near the Malta Experience) as well as a busy Sunday market, just outside the city.

Nearby Attractions

Bugibba is well served by the local bus network and you can easily take a bus to the sandy beaches in the north; the historic capital of Valletta and charming inland towns or; to the nightlife capital of Paceville, at St Julian's Bay. The main bus station is located behind the Dolmen Resort Hotel on the boundaries of Qawra. Organised excursions to popular tourist attractions are also readily available.
