Situated just north of St Paul's Bay, Xemxija in Maltese means the sunny one. A small picturesque bay, Xemxija provides a safe harbour for numerous small pleasure boats and luzzus. Pretty though it may be there is little here to detain tourists. But if you are in the Xemxija area do drop into Tal-Veccja. This traditional town house has been converted into a Bar & Restaurant which overlooks the pretty bay. The food is excellent and the bar down below features Jazz nights on a Thursday and a smoking-friendly verandah.
