2 bedroom apartment (sleeps 6) 500 metres from the beach in St Thomas Bay, Marsaskala, where you can enjoy walking along the promenade, visit heritage sites, swim or dine in open-air restaurants. Fifteen minutes away from the apartment, there is the bus terminus (village centre of Marsaskala). 3km away you can visit the Three Cities - three small citadel-cities in the port dating back to the 15th century full of old palazzi, museums & a romantic waterfront. Charming these citadels are old churches, castles, narrow streets, heritage museums, a casino, good restaurants & traditional wine bars.

The closest beach is a sandy beach 500 metres away. Near this small beach one finds many rocky bays. Being close to the sea is nice both in summer and in winter, because in summer you can swim and sunbathe, and in winter you can walk and explore the cliffs close by, or have a barbeque by the sea on a blanket, or read a book.
Since Marsaskala is a small seaside village there are many places you can swim. Besides beaches, in Malta you could visit megalithic temples, forts built by the Knights, Popeye village, the Blue lagoon, etc. Renting a car depends on your goals. Would you like to drive around and see more? Or would you prefer to take it easy, walk in the countryside, travel by bus and enjoy quality time?
