The Sands Apartments are very conveniently situated just off the main road through St Paul's Bay and about 100 metres from the Maltaqua Dive Centre. Their position just on the edge of the village means they are close to all the amenities without suffering the traffic noise of the town centre.
Although they were originally designed for the discerning diver, they have proved popular with all tourists. They have all that is needed for a comfortable holiday. They are well finished, tastefully decorated, roomy and clean. There is a flight of stairs to the first floor and a lift from there to the remaining floors. No need for divers to lug their gear upstairs to the flat as there is a room in the basement to wash and store equipment.
All apartments are supplied with linen and bathroom towels, cutlery and crockery. You will need to bring your own beach/bath towels. Water and electricity are included in the price. Transfers to and from the airport are also arranged at no extra cost.
Studio with extra bedroom: as above but with a separate bedroom so can it serve four persons easily.
Penthouse: The Penthouse can be reached directly by lift using a special key. The sitting room, dining room and kitchen form a single large, arched, open-plan area with balcony doors opening onto a wide terrace at the front. There are three good sized bedrooms, one with a large patio and its own facilities. In addition to the bathroom there is a fully equipped toilet/shower room adjacent to the living room. There is lots of room for 6 persons.
There are several easily accessible wrecks, the largest being the recently sunk, 105 metres "El Faroud", lying in 35 metres at Weid-iz Zurrieq (Blue Grotto).
