Advantages Small farming Maltese village
Disadvantages not many shops
|Is it worth visiting?|
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other was a British Army camp which hosted many different regiments including the Royal Marines .These army camps are no longer active.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.
