Qawra was developed in the 1960s but, whilst its popularity continues to grow, it still has something of a reputation as being one of the best kept secrets in Malta. It is situated on the north east coast of Malta and, together with Bugibba and St Pauls Bay, combines to form the largest tourist area on the island. Qawra holidays are popular with families, couples and water sports enthusiasts, in particular.
As it continues to grow along the rocky north coast up to Salina, it's far more tranquil and laid back than its closest neighbour, Bugibba, and also offers arguably newer and more upmarket hotel, many of which have direct beach access. You'll find that Qawra holidays are ideally suited to anyone, regardless of who you go on holidays with!

Top Qawra Hotels
Qawra weather is hot in the summer and still very mild in the winter months which is why it has a year-round popularity both with watersports enthusiasts and families and couples 12 months of the year. If you want to go on a family holiday to Qawra then the summer months are the best time, while for couples looking to get away from the stress of life should consider taking their Qawra holidays later in the season.
Holidays in Qawra offer you majestic scenic views. It is located on a peninsula so has a seafront on three sides - St Pauls is to the north, Salina Bay with its great salt pans is to the south and the Mediterranean Sea beckons to the east. Therefore, it is easy to see why it's popular with water sports enthusiasts. Its beach comprises shingle and rocks although in many places the rocks are flat and suitable for sunbathing. However, the good news is that if you prefer sandy beaches, Mellieha is only 8km away.
