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.

Things To Do on Qawra Holidays

Holidays to Qawra are great for watersports which is one of the main reasons it's so popular. It has a number of shops catering for all your basic needs but the main attraction has to be its location. It offers a peaceful haven in which to relax yet is ideally situated right next to both Bugibba and St Pauls, the former which can offer you the widest variety of entertainment in this part of the island and the latter being one of the most picturesque villages in Malta.


Qawra is best renowned for being a place to unwind and to participate in water sports. Family friendly, it is the peace and relative quiet you come for - a perfect place to relax and get away from it all with the added attraction of being right next to St Pauls and Bugibba if you fancy something a bit livelier.


There are a small number of cafes and restaurants available and most of the top hotels have their own nightclubs and put on their own entertainment extravaganzas which are fun for all the family. But if that all sounds a little too tame, you've always got Bugibba right on your doorstep. The party capital of the island, Paceville in St Julians is also just a short journey away, if you fancy a night out on the town.
