St Paul's Bay is a town therefore be prepared to put up with the usual city living nuisances (traffic noise, building work) however it has its own charm and is ideally located to explore the rest of Malta. For those who enjoy walking, there is a fantastic heritage trail to explore 15-20mn walk from the apartment on the other side of the harbour which is dotted with pre-historic landmarks as well as a Roman apiary! It leads you on to a deserted fort built by the British in the late 30's offering stunning views across the bay + North of the island as well as over Comino and Gozo. Now the absolute PLUS is the service offered by Neville and his team which is second to none! From taxi transfers to arranging tour bookings thanks to great communication links (Facebook, Whatsapp) all you need to do is ask and you get an answer within minutes! We were on a late flight and waiting for us were a couple of bottles of water along with bread, butter, ham and cheese to make ourselves a sandwich in case we were hungry. There is a bus stop right outside the apartment but to be honest, just hire a car as you will be able to park it on the street. You will get to see more of the island and I wouldn't recommend Malta's buses anyway. They're cheap, but they are way too infrequent and jam packed. I would definitely recommend a stay at Harbour Lights Penthouse Apartment. You really can't beat their highly attentive service.
