Birzebbugia


Birzebbugia is a coastal town near Marsaxlokk in the south-east of Malta, approximately eight miles from the capital city of Valletta. Boasting a population of more than 9,000 residents (a figure that fluctuates dramatically due to the influx of tourists to Malta during the summer months), Birzebbugia is a popular destination comprising attractive sandy beaches and promenades and many important archaeological sites.

The earliest evidence of humans on Malta can be seen at Ghar Dalam, a cave a short distance away from the town. Evidence found from within this cave and the surrounding area date back more than 7,000 years, and at the cave and museum today one can view a wealth of historical artefacts from animal bones and teeth to human artefacts.

The cave is open to the public and contains fossils of dwarf elephants, hippopotami and other dwarf mammals that are as much as 500,000 years old. There are numerous Bronze Age remains and the remains of a temple at Borg in-Nadur.

Apart from only prehistoric remains, Birzebbugia includes an abundance of other historical remains from the times of the Knights of the Order or St. John, Napoleon and the British rule from 1801.

Birzebbugia is today a thriving modern town that has seen an influx of visitors and workers employed at the Malta Freeport. Built around the beach, the town is home to some 10,000 people; a mix of foreigners and locals. The promenade provides numerous shops and restaurants, and apart from the expanse of sandy beach and a children's playground, Birzebbugia also has more rocky shoreline in the neighbouring St. George;s Bay. The area is popular for sailing and water sports, and is also a great diving location.

Birzebbugia is a highly popular destination that continues to offer an enriching and laid-back costal lifesttlye throughout the winter.
