Malta's Romantic Heart Village
Spinola Bay is situated between the areas of Paceville and St. Julian's.
It has the charm of a harmonious blending of old and new, and it has a promenade that runs the length of the bay surrounded by dense buildings typical of small Maltese towns and villages. It is here that we find the iconic sign of love, which many associate with Spinola area.
