About Regjun Tramuntana

Regjun Tramuntana.

The town and villages making up Regjun Tramuntana form a mosaic, a blend of old and new, with some having very old roots and history, while others came into being as a locality less than 30 years ago.

Some have large geographical boundaries and include several hamlets with varying population sizes. Others are smaller, but smaller does not mean less colourful or historic. All the localities have a number of common factors, yet they are all diverse and have a great significance for the region.

Indeed, each locality adds a touch of colour to the north. As the great French geographer Fernand Braudel used to say about the Mediterranean, there is unity in diversity. And there is unity in diversity in Malta’s Regjun Tramuntana as well.


Regjun Tramuntana comprises of the 9 localities found in the Northern part of Malta.





San Pawl il-Bahar


Hal Balzan


San Gwann



Together, they make up our region, which is rich in diversity, home to a Maltese as well as many other nationalities.  One can say that the Region has probably the largest number of third country nationalities living in our area, especially within San Pawl il-Bahar.  In Vincent Galea’s 2011 dissertation, some 72 different nationalities were recorded within the area.  A decade later, this is much higher making the locality a truly multi-ethnic cosmopolitan area.  The Region has around 120,000 residents which is 24.2% of the Island’s population, and forms around 33% of Malta’s total area. 

The rural element is common to all its localities.  The area is in fact abundant in farmland, with agriculture being an important industry of the region.  There are as well, numerous industrial parks primarily in Burmarrad.

Il-Mosta, and In-Naxxar, San Pawl il-Bahar and Mellieha on the other hand are strongholds for the tourism industry with Mellieha and San Pawl il-Bahar having a significant number of hotel beds, whilst Hal Balzan, H’Attard, San Gwann and il-Mosta all being strong points on Malta’s tourism map. 

From scenic cliffs to rocky and sandy beaches,  some of the Region’s localities, namely in-Naxxar, San Pawl il-Bahar, Il-Mellieha and L-Imgarr  are surrounded by the sea.  Some of the best sandy beaches are found in il-Mellieha and L-Imgarr.  Il-Mellieha is also home to the most popular dive site cluster in Cirkewwa. 


Fishing has been an important part of the local economy for these coastal towns, and this is evident even from the names – such as the Tunnara area in Mellieha, from where a special method was used to catch Tuna. Nowadays, some of the major industry players in the fishing industry are found in our region.  Tuna, Sea Bream and other fish are farmed in a number of areas then sold locally and abroad. 


Our region is home to a wide range of associations, sporting communities and NGO’s.  There are a number of band clubs hailing from the 9 localities, which also have fireworks factories and or associations. Not all associations have their own factory but work within other facilities.

One finds a number of football facilities in our area, including the National Football ground as well as the National Basketball pitch.  In addition, we have an airfield for model flyers and Malta’s only track for auto and moto cross, besides an a 4×4 off-road site.  There are as well 3 shooting ranges, two street sport venues and a plethora of other sporting clubs.  One finds a number of Scout and Guide groups as well.


We decided to give more space to these organisations and hereby provide a platform to all our associations within our Region to promote themselves and their service.  The value such associations contribute to the local community is one to be admired and commended.
