Qawra Mini Guide

Why Would I go to Qawra?
If you dream about a British-influenced holiday of sunbathing, seaside and nightlife all without the stereotypical cold weather, Qawra (with a silent Q) is for you.  It's almost twinned with neighbouring town Bugibba to offer everything your holiday heart desires, and these two popular tourist destinations comprise the majority of St Paul's Bay in the Northeast of Malta.

What's to do?
It's the place to go if you love water sports.  There are boats galore and the rocky shores are ideal for snorkelling and scuba.  There is no sandy beach but plenty of flat rocks and small coves creating a sunbathers paradise.  As ever in Malta, history is a key feature.  If you are more into seeing than sea-ing, visit the local tower originally built by the Knights of St John and now housing a restaurant. 
How do I get There?
Qawra offers a good position from which to get out and about.  It is less than 20km from Valletta and hence an easy initial transfer from Malta's airport.  Car hire is a great way to tour at your convenience, whether you want to visit the old town at St Paul's Bay, the island of Gozo or nearby Salina Bay, head into the historic capital city, or take a short drive to the sandy beach at Mellieha Bay.  If you have hired with Rhino, collect your vehicle at the airport "Welcome Hall" and away you go!  If you prefer public transport, neighbouring Bugibba offers numerous bus routes going to and from local destinations and further afield.

What About Nightlife?

Clubs, restaurants and casinos are ready to give you a warm and energetic welcome.  Numerous bars will keep you fully refreshed and there is English football available on TV for fans who wish to keep up.  If you prefer something a little more serene, it is also popular to take a night-time stroll by the sea.

Latest Update from Qawra:

09/05/12 - The Malta National Aquarium project is well underway in Qawra. Begun in late 2011, it's due to be completed by the end of 2012 but parts of it will open this summer including the 140 hectare grounds.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

If you like a holiday abroad but with home comforts then Qawra is for you. There’s not much in the line of traditional Malta there. The seafront is lined with steak and chips restaurants and take-away joints and at night, Qawra is Malta’s answer to Agia Napa.

Some of the island’s best bars and nightclubs are found there and after an evening meal on the seafront, enjoy some local cocktails before dancing the night away. If, after all that, you feel in need of some culture, traditional Maltese villages are only a few minutes away by hire car.
