Malta - Selmun Bay
Popularly known as Selmun Bay, the proper name for this small “hidden” beach is Imgiebah Bay. There’s no public transport to this beach and perhaps this is one of the main reasons why it’s often deserted during the week. If you’re going by car, it’s still not that easy to reach. It’s often said that getting to this beach is an “adventure” in itself and some people (even Maltese) get lost trying to remember which road leads to this bay. If you’re hiring a car, Imgiebah Bay near Selmun, Mellieha is the perfect remote beach for those who wish to escape the crowds. This beach is a bit difficult to find. From Mellieha, you have to follow the signs to Selmun. It’s best if you ask for directions once you’re in Selmun since no proper signage to the bay is available. You can leave your car at the top of the cliff and make your way down to the bay on foot. You can also walk it from Mellieha. It will take you some two hours to get to Imgiebah Bay (that’s if you don’t get lost). Selmun Bay is located deep in the countryside. It’s a bit of a rough walk to actually get to the beach but it’s well worth it. The beach is surrounded by awesome natural surroundings and offers some excellent snorkeling opportunities. Imgiebah Bay: Beach Facilities No facilities or kiosks are available at Imgiebah Bay so remember to take anything you’ll need with you.

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.
The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.
Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".
Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.
Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.
In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
