Lois Ronberg says:
"Did the Apostle Paul really suffer a shipwreck in this beautiful bay in Malta? Well I don’t know the answer to that but local legend has it that he did and therefore the island you see off St Paul’s Bay in North West Malta is his island. It certainly adds to the interest of this huge bay with water frontage for miles. I had a superb dinner with the family of a friend who live on the seashore frontage here and I really was drawn to the casual way of life, set in such a warm and friendly part of the world. St Paul’s Bay is really quite old: it started as a small fishing village and the local parish church has stood there since 1617. It had to be restored after taking a major hit in World War 2. St Paul’s Bay is around 11 miles from Malta’s capital, Valetta and you can get there by rather ‘’old’‘ bedford buses as there are buses which take a variety of routes to and from the capital, all day and into the evening. We used this ancient fleet to travel all over the island to specific things we wanted to see, like the Mdina and the art and craft ''airport shelters''. This area is ideal for accommodation and there is plenty of it to suit all tastes and after spending some time enjoying the bay and all it offers you can head off all over the island on day tours. I just loved the shopping in St Paul’s Bay and went quite mad with purchases including some delightfully creative, knitted aron jerseys for the grandchildren and some well-priced costume jewellery. Souviners abound as you would expect but quite good quality I remember. From St Paul’s Bay you can walk along the promenade to Qawra and as you do there are delightful little fishing boats, of all colours ,bobbing away in the harbour. It is quite a picture. This bay, along with Qawra and Buggiba are the biggest recreational bays on the island and are well worth a visit. Do visit and take the time to walk along the promenade, have a quiet time in the cafes and bars or get some worthwhile ‘’retail therapy’‘. I love Malta. "
