    Bugibba Temple
    4 more images

    There are many Neolithic remains on Malta and the Bugibba Temple is one of them but there are no signs for it as you are walking around.
    It is in the grounds of the Dolman Hotel (near the bus station) and is worth a visit if you are into the Historical side of Malta. You can get to it through the main entrance of the Hotel and going through to the pool and garden area, Many of the items found on the site are in the Archaeological museum in Valletta.

    2 more images

    Qalet Marku Tower, also known as St Mark's Tower, is probably the third of the thirteen towers built by Grand Master de Redin.

    The price of the building was entirely paid by the Grand Master and was built between March 1658 and July of the following year together with the other twelve towers.

    During the British period a small room was built in front of the Tower to serve as a guard room but only its foundations remain.

    On the road from Valletta to Bugibba - Qawra

    On the road from Valletta to Bugibba - Qawra

    Although Bugibba is not far from the capital Valletta (around 13km, meaning less than I do every morning to go to work), the roads are not very good and the busses are going on a low speed.

    It takes around 45 to 50 minutes from Bugibba to Valletta, but this also has a good part because the road goes along the sea shore and passes near some of the most beautiful maltese towers (see next tips).

    Qawra part of Bugibba

    by Elly01 Written May 16, 2007
    Little beach opposite Coastline Hotel
    2 more images

    I am placing this tip here because Qawra is soo small and did not find a travel page on it and Qawra is part of Bugibba so I thought it is very adapt.

    In photo number 1 this is the small beach just opposite the Coastline Hotel. Be careful when crossing here and when driving around this area as many accidents happen. The little beach can have some jellyfish so come prepared and also some algae and its not always very nice to swim.

    Photo Number 2 is taken from the coast road of Bahar ic-Caghaq looking towards Qawra and Bugibba.

    Photo number 3 is of this little stream at Kennedy Grove which is this picnic area where there swings and a largish area where kids can play and family make picnics in Winter and just before Summer.

    Crossroads of Bugibba from the road of Salini

    by Elly01 Written Jun 16, 2005
    Crossroads of Bugibba from Salini road

    This photo was taken in the crossroads of Bugibba from the road of Salini. If you follow the Coastroad and pass Bahar ic-Caghaq the pass Coastline HOtel and then pass Salini (where there are the salt pans) you will find yourself at these crossroads. If you go straight you go up to Mellieha, St.Paul's Bay, Ghajn Tuffieha, Xemxija, Selmun and past Mellieha you will even end up in the port of Cirkewwa and can take the ferry to Gozo from there.

    At the crossroads if you take a right you will end up in Bugibba.
