Malta is a well-known holiday destination for families, culture-loving travellers and even retired couples, but what does this island have on offer for students? Well, stay tuned because in this post you’ll learn about Malta’s most popular party centre – Saint Julian’s.
Whether you’re whizzing off to the island to dance the night away with your gal pals or enjoy the island’s best beers on a holiday with the lads, Saint Julian’sis heartily recommended for a fun-filled student’s getaway. Read on to find out more so that you can start planning your jam-packed holiday itinerary.
Top Nightlife Joints
For the young crowd, Saint Julian’s – particularly the district of Paceville – is the nightlife hotspot. With numerous bars and nightclubs around every corner, a party is never hard to find, and with the help of this quick guide you can make sure you’re enjoying each night at the very best venues.
This club has it all: free entry, laser light shows, three floors of music… what could be better? Take your mates along to this popular venue and you’re sure to want to stay ’til closing time.
The Sky Club
You’ll certainly have a night to remember at Sky! This is one of Malta’s largest indoor clubs and, as well as playing the usual disco tunes, this venue hosts various live music concerts and other performances throughout the year. Try to catch one if you’re paying Paceville a visit.
Bar Celona Lounge
If you’re looking for something a little more stylish and less crowded, perhaps head to Bar Celona Lounge. While this venue is still a club, it caters to a slightly older crowd – perfect if you need a night off from the crazy, over-packed joints but still want to enjoy a few drinks. There’s great food available here, too, so this could even be somewhere to grab a bite before heading to one of the bigger clubs.
BJ’S Live Music Club
Lovers of live music definitely shouldn’t miss this joint. There are various different events scheduled weekly, so whenever you plan to pay this venue a visit you’ll be sure to catch something brilliant on stage. Dance the night away and enjoy fantastic bands before heading back to your accommodation for some much needed rest.
To Cure the Hangovers
With every great party destination there must be some ways to cure the inevitable hangovers. In addition to a slap-up breakfast, I can recommend heading to St George’s Bay for a chilled out afternoon lying on the golden sands. Nothing gets rid of a hangover like a nap on the beach – just make sure you’re wearing plenty of sun lotion in case you fall asleep for one hour too many.
St George’s Bay has all the amenities you need to enjoy a relaxing beach day, and there are a number of great restaurants nearby where you can grab a light bite if you can’t quite stomach a full English. Enjoy the calming sounds of the waves and you’re sure to be fully recovered by the time the next party starts!
