Property for Sale in Salina
Salina, Malta is a small village that borders Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq, Magħtab, Naxxar and St. Paul’s Bay. Salina is mostly known for its salt pans and the Salina Catacombs. The word “salini” means “salt pans” in Maltese.
The area is quieter than most of the tourist areas but Salina Bay and Salini village are still popular, dreamy holiday destinations, making Salina properties sought-after. It is located on the north coast of the main island of Malta and just 3km away from bustling Bugibba and Qawra, Malta’s biggest holiday resorts. This proximity allows visitors to choose being part of the busy nightlife and activities on offer just a short trip away and then retreating back to the peaceful tranquillity of Salina Bay.
Recently completely renovated, the area will resume being the main site of salt production in Malta. Salina Bay’s salt pans were known to deliver in excess of 4,000 tonnes of coarse sea salt a year.
The coastline along Salina Bay is truly Mediterranean: clear, bright blue water which is perfect for snorkelling and exploring rock pools. The entire coastline stretching to Bahar ic-Caghaq offers one the opportunity to explore coastal paths, taking in the spectacular sea views or diving into the refreshing water. A sandy beach at Mellieha Bay and loads of water sports facilities in Bugibba and Qawra are a short trip away by bus or car. Historic attractions are the Salina Catacombs, an important record of early settlements in the area.
Nightlife offered in Salina Bay is relaxed and quiet, mostly restricted to the hotels and small romantic restaurants that overlook the coastline. For the more adventurous, all the pubs, bars, clubs, amusement arcades, cinemas, and even a casino are located in the neighbouring towns of Bugibba and Qawra to the west with the legendary nightlife of Paceville, St. Julian’s and Sliema, Malta’s largest entertainment districts, a short distance away to the east.
The patron saint is Our Lady of Victories and the day of uts festa is 8 September, which it shares with the greater area of Naxxar.
