St. George's Bay, Malta

St. George's Bay, Beauties of Malta

Malta is a group of islands in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, just below Sicily (Italy). Many people describe Maltese islands as an 'open air museum', offering 7,000 years or more of history to explore with numerous cultural, historical and megalithic sites unique in the world.

Malta however is not only that! It is also a popular holiday destination because of its beautiful bays and sandy beaches, with clear blue waters. So, no wonder why Malta attracts a large number of visitors each year from all over the world.

One of its beautiful beaches is St. Georges Bay located 8 km from Valletta, and very near to Paceville, the 'nightlife capital of Malta' which is located on the hill opposite the Bay Street centre.
St. Georges Bay has a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

The picturesque narrow bay, has a small sandy beach at the head.

A variety of colourful boats anchored in the bay.

The well kept secrets of Malta which has something for everyone for a relaxing, easy and interesting holiday.

Stunning scenery with its azure sea in the small and picturesque marina.

Παραλία Σεντ Τζορτζ
Ομορφιές της Μάλτας

Η Μάλτα είναι μια ομάδα νησιών, στην καρδιά της Μεσογείου, ακριβώς κάτω από τη Σικελία (Ιταλία). Πολλοί περιγράφουν τη Μάλτα ως ένα «υπαίθριο μουσείο της Μεσογείου», που προσφέρει 7.000 χρόνων ή και περισσότερα για τη έρευνα της ιστορίας με πολλά ιστορικά μνημεία και μεγαλιθικά ευρήματα, μοναδικά στον κόσμο.

Η Μάλτα, ωστόσο δεν είναι μόνο αυτό! Είναι επίσης ένας πολύ δημοφιλής προορισμός για διακοπές, λόγω των όμορφων όρμων και τις αμμώδεις παραλίες, με τα καθαρά, καταγάλανα νερά. Έτσι, δεν αποτελεί έκπληξη γιατί η Μάλτα προσελκύει μεγάλο αριθμό επισκεπτών κάθε χρόνο από όλο τον κόσμο.

Μια από τις όμορφες παραλίες που διαθέτει είναι η παραλία του Σεντ Τζιόρτζ. Βρίσκεται 8 χλμ. από τη Βαλέτα, και πολύ κοντά στο Paceville, την «πρωτεύουσα της νυχτερινής ζωής της Μάλτας», που βρίσκεται στο λόφο απέναντι από το κέντρο Bay Street.

Η μικρή αλλά όμορφη αμμουδερή παραλία του Σεντ Τζόρτζ.

Πόλος έλξης ντόπιων και ξένων, μικρών και μεγάλων.

Κοσμοπολίτικο περιβάλλον, ευχάριστες στιγμές, ωραίες συγκινήσεις.

Διπλανή ακτή. Η Μάλτα περιβάλλεται περισσότερο από βράχους.

Στο σύγχρονο κέντρο η καρδιά της συνοικίας κτυπά σε νεανικούς ρυθμούς.

Η νυχτερινή ζωή, η διασκέδαση μέχρι πρωίας στα πολυάριθμα κλαπ και κέντρα προσελκύει το νεαρόκοσμο.

A lot of history, sunshine, people - very nice.

I looked at the letters in the parts which you wrote in Greek. I have a feeling I can almost read them, at least when you wrote "Malta" I recognised that and know what the Greek L looks like. (Lamda)

It's like being in school when I come here :D

@ Rita. Yia sou, Terve, Hi Rita. A lot of history, sunshine, people and the sea, things I love most!
When you come to Cyprus you will learn a lot of Greek. You decide when. You are right. The Greek L looks like (Lamda). MALTA = ΜΑΛΤΑ in Greek or Μάλτα.
