Guess what? Buġibba is also named and spelled Bugibba - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Buġibba is a coastal town on the island of Malta. It is sandwiched between the towns of St. Paul’s Bay and Qawra. Together, the three villages share a promenade along the coast, which stretches from Gillieru Harbor in St. Paul’s Bay, passes through the main square of Buġibba, and reaches to Qawra’s Salina Bay. Along the two-mile long promenade, tourists can enjoy pubs, restaurants, and bars.

Although a prehistoric temple site was discovered in Buġibba during the twentieth century, the village has been designed and established as a modern resort town. The megalithic temple’s ruins are now surrounded by a hotel and casino through which you may enter in order to gaze at the ancient site. Afterward, you may choose to play a few rounds in the casino which boasts a multi-lingual, internationally-trained staff for an enjoyable gambling experience.

Yet, the number one attraction of Buġibba and its surrounding towns is to soak in the sun, sand and surf. There are several natural, sandy beaches as well as an artificial, perched beach. You can try out many water sports, including canoeing, scuba diving, snorkeling and kayaking. If you rather sit back and unwind, you can hop onto one of the many boats for a relaxing ride on the water as well as some spectacular views and photo opportunities. You may also visit other islands of the archipelago of Malta.

If the heat is getting out of control, you may opt to get out of the sun and pop into one of the many spas to give your body a little TLC. For tourists who are on holiday with little children, there is a waterpark for the kids to cool themselves off while parents chill in the shade.

At the end of a sand- and sun-filled day, the budget-minded traveler has several options for accommodations. If you are going solo, you may be able to find the odd hostel among the many hotels and resorts in this packaged-vacay oriented town. Since hostels are few and far between in the area, it is wise to partner up with fellow travelers and check into a guest house, apart-hotel, or other holiday rental; sharing a room among several guests will reduce each individual’s cost to the equivalent of a hostel bed’s price tag.
