This surf camp will take place in Saint Paul’s Bay, Malta. Malta’s size and fine weather all year round also make it easy to combine the study of English with a sports course or other leisure and fun activities. Saint Paul’s Bay is an ideal base to explore the island with excellent bus links to Valletta, Sliema, and Mdina. The best beaches on the island are also an easy bus ride away.
The sea is shallow and clear making it ideal for children. Golden Bay nestles below rocks and is a wonderful spot to have something to eat and watch the sun set. For those who enjoy a slower pace and quieter nightlife, then Saint Paul’s Bay is ideal. If you want to enjoy the bright lights of Bugibba or Qawra, both are within walking distance. The beaches and the main towns are all easy to reach using the cheap and regular bus services.
The bay itself, which is enclosed, is the perfect setting for all water-sports enthusiasts. Windsurfers and water-skiers mingle with the traditional colorful Maltese fishing-boats. Saint Paul’s Bay is a typical old-world Mediterranean fishing village situated in the north of Malta. Although it now boasts of all modern amenities such as shops, banks, a post-office, several restaurants specializing in local cuisine, pubs, and open-air cafes, it still retains its old-world charm.
This surf camp includes half board meals including daily continental breakfast and cooked dinner. Full board meals are also available at an extra cost. You can also request for special diet requirements (coeliac, halal, low-cholesterol, vegan, and lactose free diet) for 49 EUR.
