LOA – Nestled in the coastal area near the historic Wignacourt Tower in St. Paul’s Bay, LOA is one of the first modern restaurants to launch within this tourist-favourite destination that is currently experiencing significant renewal. The restaurant’s identity pays homage to two elements found in South American cultures, namely the ancient Río LOA—Chile’s longest river which spans over 440km—and the fascinating LOAs goddesses, each of whom offers protection and counsel in return for ritual service expressed through sacred rhythms, songs, and dance.

Beefbar – Perfect for a fancy night out, this global franchise combines a high-end restaurant, detail oriented ambience and excellent service with top of the range cocktails. Beefbar is located on the main street of Bugibba and boasts a view of the stunning St Paul’s Islands. Outdoor seating is also available in the terrace area as well as with extra-comfort sun loungers perched on the infinity pool’s deck – pure bliss.
