On the northern tip of Malta, bubbly Bugibba is one of the island’s most in-demand holiday playgrounds. Commanding centre stage on St Paul’s Bay’s rugged 5-kilometre coastline, this small town is crammed with modern hotels and apartment blocks, and has recently had an expensive makeover. Judging by the attractive main square and the promenade, where the brand-new Bugibba Waterpark now resides, it’s been money well spent.
The Topaz Hotel gives you the best of both worlds – it’s on a quiet plot, but within strolling distance of Bugibba’s bars, beach and restaurants.
This place is tucked down a backstreet in buzzing Bugibba. It’s a 10-minute walk to a seafront square lined with bars, shops and restaurants. From here, it’s only five minutes on foot to a manmade beach.
The hotel doubles up on a lot of facilities. You’ve got a pair of restaurants to choose from, including a buffet and an Italian à la carte, as well as two pools and a duo of bars.
