If Qwara is the new then Bugibba is the old. Located towards the very Northen tip of Malta, it is one of the 'old towns' in the transistion towards tourism. There are many tourist sites across Malta, however the effects are less evident here. Whereas there are still tourist shops and hotels present, the development has not been as heavy.
The rocky beaches that surround the towns borders are preferred by the locals, as they need less management then other sandy beaches across the island (these are only managed seasonally). However due to the majority of the rocky coastline being flat many locations are suuitable for sunbathing. However, there is a small sandy beach at the head of St Paul's Bay.
The square of Bugibba holds many cafes and places of interest, however, this is a trade off as developments are becoming more tourist based. The square becomes a hive of activity after dark with numerous bars, clubs, karaoke bars attracting the locals as well as the tourists. There is also a Bingo hall and Casino to try your luck in.
