The village of Bidnija is situated on a rural hamlet in the central northern part of Malta, and home to 308 people (by 2008) which means that it is the second smallest village in the Maltese islands after Mdina (236 people). Bidnija is a tiny village even by Maltese standards, and is located between two main valleyswhich are 'Wied Qannotta' and 'Wied Tal-Pwales' that extends into other small valleys surrounding the area. It is still largely a farmer's village since it is entirely surrounded by fields which mainly belongs to the inhabitants themselves, although in recent years many have moved here in order to enjoy the quiet life amidst the countryside.

In the present, Bidnija does not have its own local council. However in these last years Bidnija has become divided into 2 parts with the main part of the village in the limits of Mosta local council and another part in the limits of St. Paul's Bay local council.

Bidnija has good horse riding facilities and is also home of a clay pigeon shooting club. There is also a small restaurant which specialises in the traditional Maltese Rabbit Stew.

Bidnija's small church is dedicated to the Holy Family and a Feast is celebrated in July.
