Porto del Sol Guesthouse

self-catering apartments with balconies and sea views of Xemxija Bay

Guest Houses and B&Bs Aparthotels

Rooms are spacious and tidy and most have beautiful panoramic views of Xemxija Bay. The place is family run and the service is friendly and helpful. The in-house Porto del Sol restaurant is a favourite in the area.

The Porto del Sol Guest House is located along the Xemxija seafront, a large bay that is opposite and forms part of St. Paul's Bay. This is a quieter part of town but also has its fair share of leisure and entertainment facilities including various restuarants, a gelateria, beach club, cafes, swimming zones and a mini market. Within walking distance of the Porto del Sol Guesthouse there is also a nature reserve and important archaeological roman sites.

For the fit and brave, the seafront promande can lead you all the way to St. Paul's Bay, Bugibba and Qawra areas within a 30 minute to 1 hour walk. The rest can avail themselves of the public transport with a bus top set right across the road from the Porto del Sol Guesthouse. Its location in the seaside town of Xemxija gives it all the advantages of a resort but within enough distance from the major entertainment areas to offer a relaxing holiday.

The accommodation consists of 18 self-catering holiday units which have been recently given a lovely refurbishment. Many of the apartments at Porto del Sol have their own balcony with unobstructed sea and country views.

The in-house a la carte Porto del Sol Restaurant is situated at ground level serving fresh fish, pasta dishes, Maltese dishes and Mediterraneran cuisine, and a varied selection of home-made desserts. It is a local favourite and has been at the top of its game for many years.

Porto del Sol is also within easy reach of the most beatiful sandy beaches in Malta. To the West and within a 5 minute drive are the Golden Bay and Riviera beaches (locally known as Ghajn Tuffieha), whilst to the North and within a 10 minute drive you will be at Mellieha Bay (locally known as Ghadira). This is in addition to the many restaurants, bars, shops and attractions (such as the National Aquarium) that can be found in the villages of St. Paul's Bay,  Bugibba  and Qawra, all within a few minutes drive.


Porto del Sol offers a selection of studio rooms sleeping two persons; one-bedroom apartments sleeping two persons with up to two extra beds if required; and two-bedroom apartments with spacious living areas, which can sleep up to four persons with extra beds, if required.  

All rooms are self-catering with a basic kitchenette having a hob, refrigerator and sink, toaster, kettle, cutlery and crockery. There is a mini market located within walking distance should you need to buy any groceries and toiletries. All rooms have their own bathroom/shower and all seaview rooms have a small balcony enjoying clear unobstructed sea and country views.
