This Aparthotel which is located at the northern edge of St. Pauls Bay boasts wonderful views to the front and also to the rear of the hotel. The bay of Xemxija sweeps from north to south past the front of the hotel.   

The northern localities of Malta are especially popular with winter and spring walkers and the Porto Azzurro Aparthotel which is situated in Xemxija Bay is perfectly placed to take advantage of this popularity.  The hotel which over looks the picturesque St. Paul’s Bay has fantastic views of the sea from the front of the hotel and boasts breathtaking views of the Maltese countryside to the rear of the hotel

Mizieb, a natural forested area to the north and the west of Malta is very popular with tourists and locals for its open spaces and nature trails. Some of the finest walks through the Maltese countryside have their origins from the area of Mizieb.  Just 100 metres from the Porto Azzurro you can find the starting point of a popular trail which takes you up the valley side and into the heart of the Maltese countryside.

The Porto Azzurro is an apart hotel which offers a choice of hotel rooms or self catering units in modern and comfortable surroundings.  A lovely garden area to the rear of the hotel offers a secluded pool area where the guests of the hotel can enjoy relaxing afternoons in the afternoon sun.

Property Amenities

Although the Porto Azzurro Aparthotel is in an area of the island where there is easy access to the northern bays of Malta or to the more central resorts of Bugibba and Qawra, the hotel provides plenty of amenities to satisfy the needs of its guests in resort.

The hotel has a quiet and very popular outdoor pool area which is gated off from the main building and therefore provides privacy for the hotel guests whilst they relax by the pool area.  There is also a childrens section and a whirlpool included in the garden areas.  During the summer a pool bar is in operation and there is lots of additional sun terracing around the garden area. 

The main restaurant of the hotel aswell as an additional pizzeria offer comfortable dining options to guests whilst the hotel bar is a popular meeting point for comfortable evenings.  There is an indoor pool for guests who like to swim during the cooler months as well as a sauna, massage rooms and a small area with some fitness equipment.

An onsite mini-market stocks groceries and holiday essentials. Further amenities include high-speed public Internet access (surcharge), laundry facilities, and a games room with a pool table. Complimentary parking is available on site.

Points of Interest

St. Paul's Bay and its neighbours Buġibba and Qawra are Malta's largest, seaside resorts. They offer plentiful accommodation ranging from self-catering apartments to hotel complexes and a variety of nightlife and leisure options.
The coastline here has some wonderful open sea views and a vista across to St. Paul's Island, where, according to legend, the ship carrying the Apostle is said to have been wrecked. The coastline promenade provides a long, though mostly level and easy walk from St. Paul's Bay all the way to Qawra Point, with its tower and views over Salina Bay. St. Paul's Bay started life as a small fishing village. The main tourist zone is concentrated on the promontory east of St. Paul's Church towards the modern resorts of Bugibba and Qawra.  

Xemxija, on the inner northern shore of St. Paul's Bay, has also developed into a holiday centre.
