Xemxija is a town on the west side of St. Paul's Bay, Malta.

Xemxija (meaning sunny) is the gateway to the sandy beaches of Golden Bay to the west, and to Mellieha Bay to the north. Xemxija is a quiet resort, surrounded by Maltese countryside and some of the most fertile valleys in Malta. There is also a picturesque small fishing harbour. There are a few hotels and restaurants in Xemxija, but nightlife, shops and bars can be found in the villages of St Paul's Bay, Buġibba and Qawra, all within walking distance.

Xemxija, although formed up mainly of new apartment blocks which were built in the late 80 and 90's, has been home to settlements from the pre-historic age.

In fact, a route including several Punic tombs, silos, temple remains and megalithic stones has been formed within the last few years. This route, mainly located on Xemxija hill (in Maltese, "ix-Xaghra l- Bajda"), is a must see for anyone ho wishes toknow more about Xemxija.
