Qawra holidays, pronounced ‘awra’, will take you to one of Malta’s most popular resorts. You’ll find it on the north-east coast of the island, and you can expect a classic sun, sea and sand combination. Qawra is set around stunning St Paul’s Bay, boasting a sun-soaked beach running along azure waters. It’s a real hotspot for water sports, too, with as much water-skiing, and scuba diving as you like. The kids will love the beach, and there are also plenty of family-friendly attractions to explore together. Love history? This island is full of unusual sites dating back thousands of years. There’s plenty of natural wonders to see too, so whether you’re enjoy the summer sun or a winter break, holidays to Qawra are great all year round.
Things to do
This modern holiday resort maintains a sense of Maltese tradition. You’ll find lots of luxury high-rise hotels along the seafront, with bustling bars and cafés lining the promenade. And then there’s the 16th century Qawra Tower to explore. This former fortress is now home to a swimming pool and restaurant. If you want to get away from it all, there are lots of quiet coves to hide in along St Paul’s Bay. And when you’re ready to take a break from the sunny beaches, why not step it up a gear at a water sports centre?
Qawra is so close to Bugibba that the two towns are almost one big resort. This gives you a great choice of things to do, whether you want to spend your time relaxing or sightseeing. If you want a restful holiday, lounge around by the sea at Qawra Point, or stroll along the seafront to Perched Beach in Bugibba. There’s lots of water sports to try when you feel like some action, and boat trips out across St. Paul’s Bay. From aquariums to water parks, there’s plenty to keep you busy.
If you’re interested in Malta’s history or just love to sightsee, don’t miss the island’s incredible temple complexes. Skorba is just a short drive from Qawra, while Mnajdra and Hagar Qim are a bit further away on the south coast. Explore ruins that are over 5,000 years old, while taking in the stunning scenery around you.
If you want to be active while you’re away, hire a car and head to some of Malta’s other great spots. Visit historic watchtowers, spend some time in capital Valetta, or relax in the spectacular sands of Mellieha Beach. When it’s time to sit down for dinner, go for a romantic meal along the seafront, or head over to Bugibba’s vibrant main square. Whatever kind of holiday you’re after, you’re sure to have a lovely break in Qawra.
