Ta' Xbiex

Ta' Xbiex is located inside Marsamxett Harbour, between Msida and Gzira. It is thought that the geographical position facing the sunrise (Tbexbix) gives Ta' Xbiex its name, however some believe that the name comes from the Maltese word for fishing nets (Xbiek) which were prevalent in this former fishing village.

Ta' Xbiex has the Yacht Marina that is dominated by the Black Pearl galley, today a restaurant. This town is home to a number of ship chandler service industries, boat supplies shops and also insurance and law firms, although it is most well-known for the numerous foreign embassies housed in its magnificent buildings along the coast. Among others, one can find the Embassies of Egypt, Greece, Ireland, France, the Australian High Commission and the British High commission.

The promenade from the Gzira gardens to the Msida Yacht Marina once can admire the beautiful mansions on one side and large boats on the other. From the Yacht Marina you can appreciate the view of Valletta and Floriana's majestic bastions while enjoying a snack from one of the cafe's nearby.

Ta' Xbiex became an independent parish in 1969. The Church dedicated to St John of the Cross is run by the Discalced Teresian Carmelite Monks and is decorated in Basilical and Roman style. Inside there is a well-known Crucifix measuring 420cm high and 240cm wide which is quite unique in the world. The Crucifix has a Maltese inscription which when translated reads, "Where there is no love, put love and you will reap love."
