Manikata - A small country village in Malta
Manikata is a small typical Maltese village. The main industry of Manikata is farming. Manikata is located on a farming valley which is rich in produce. Much of the produce is harvested and sold off at framing markets.
On the outskirts of Manikata there were two military camps in the 1960's. One was home to Royal Malta Artillery and the other was a British Army camp which hosted many different regiments including the Royal Marines .
These army camps are no longer active. One of them has been turned into a holiday style village "Hal-Ferh"
Just about a 10 minute walk is Golden Bay, one of Malta's best known beaches. AT present there is a new Hotel complex being built replacing the GOLDEN SANDS hotel which was built in the 1970's. This hotel has now been demolished and a brand new Hotel has been built. This was the setting for the queen and President Bush recent visit.
Manikata has a unique styled church (st Joseph's church) which attracts many visitors.
Manikata is a quite village at night, there is no nightclubs or wine-bars. In fact there are only a few shops at present.
Manikata is not a tourist village. There are are places nearby to stay in if you need to. (hal ferh village and the new hotel at Golden Bay)
There is a bus every hour or so from/to Valletta which can be a bit daunting but what the hell it only costs a few cents and you see the scenary.
You can see a few pictures of Manikata via my web page. http://www.manikata.com
And I think you mean < quiet > not < quite > ?
