Burmarrad is a hamlet in Malta, within the city of St. Paul's Bay. The main tourist attraction is the San Pawl Milqi zone, where there is a chapel dedicated to St. Paul, built on the remains of a Roman temple dedicated to Apollo, and tradition says to be the remains of house of St. Publius.
The name, 'Burmarrad' may refer to the village's proximity to the sea. It is generally accepted that the name, in old Maltese, refers to a settlement upon the marshes.The original word was " bur marradi", where the "bur" refers to a well, while "marradi" means sickly. Conjoined, this means that the water in the marshes was contaminated, hence bur marradi, and later Burmarrad. Burmarrad retains a number of farms, primarily centered on agriculture The parish priest since 2016 is P. Christian Anthony Borg OFM. This tiny village is home to the residence of Joseph Muscat, Prime Minister of Malta.
