Although a town itself some consider the local towns of 'Bugibba,Qawra,Bidija,Burmarrad and Mistra to all fall under the banner of Saint Paul's which do come under the local council of Saint Paul's.
The resident population is over 14,000 but rises to over 50,000 during summer months mainly due to Maltese summer residents and tourists,especially in 'Bugibba and Qawra' as Saint Paul's itself is a lot quieter and doesn't have as many hotels and apartments.Saint Paul's island sits at the very tip of the bay with a statue of the saint in the middle,from here you can see the nearby islands of 'Comino and Gozo'.
The waterfront here is a lot prettier than nearby 'Bugibba' with its palm trees and stone walls and is a great place to walk at any time of day.
