St Julian's, Malta started life as a fishing village, but in recent years has developed into a fashionable resort town full of hotels, restaurants and bars. Just north of St. Julian's is Paceville, with a vibrant nightlife.
St. Julian's is centred around a number of bays and inlets. Around Spinola Bay, you can still see a number of fishing vessels, and see fishermen on the dock mending their nets, just steps from restaurants overlooking the bay filled with colourful boats.
The Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel sits on the bay front of Balluta Bay.
There is a public beach at St. George's Bay, just north of Paceville.
There is a casino at Dragonara point beside the Westin Dragonara Resort. The casino is built in Villa Dragonara, once the private home of a 19th century Maltese aristocrat.
