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.
