Additionally, if you have a special someone you can also get a padlock with your names inscribed to attach to the railing in front of it.
Watch the Sunrise
St George’s Bay is home to a spectacular sunrise. In the summer it means getting up early to catch it but staying up through the night to catch it is not out of the question either. If you are with someone it could make for a romantic moment since it is unlikely to be busy at that hour.
Even if you are alone it is worth seeing for the simple joy of it.

Visit the Squares
Spinola and Balluta bays both feature nearby public attractions. Spinola Palace and gardens were built in 1688 and the palace is not currently open to the public after it was damaged in 2009. The building is still a spectacular sight and well worth seeing.
The Ballta Square features another historical sight in the Carmelite church. This is a particularly nice spot for anyone looking for a quieter moment as there tend to be fewer tourists.
