    Derek, sorry misread you post, Yes that place has been closed for a few years now. I have never had the misfortune to stay there, but I have spoken to a few people who have stayed there in the past. It was know by all as Faulty Towers. Some I have chatted with say it was great, others comments are best not published. Then we have a comment only yesterday in one of the local papers (T o M) by a very prominent Malta estate agent, that Bugibba / Qawra leaves much to be desired . ...........

    Derek JB, The mucky pink hotel on the front was, The International Hotel, incorporating a well known bar, The Tartan Bar. I can’t remember exactly when it closed, but think it was around the turn of the century. I have been in the bar, but that was a long time ago. There have been rumours’ of the site being redeveloped over the years, but as yet it is in a state of decay. I have heard various rumours’ as to why it has not been redeveloped but wherever the reason is; there is no sign of any work at the site

    Bugibba, like most of Malta at the moment has plenty of building work underway. On the sea front, just up from the former Seaveiw Hotel site, we have the old McDonald building. This has now been demolished, and the site has excavation’s underway with the very deep hole being dug, last time I looked, there was a very deep hole there. In Triq Gulju, near to the old Pear Tree pub. The large derelict building opposite the equally derelict Limelight Hotel has been demolished, and digging for foundations for a new building are well underway. Further up Pioneer Road next to the Empire Cinema, the old restaurant has been demolished, and building work is underway, not sure what will be, no doubt will be apartments.

    April, the boat shipwrecked on 10 February 2018 is still there . Currently being welded during the night in readiness to be moved and scrapped. Costing a fortune to repair and move.

    Has the boat which was beached near the aquarium been re floated? It was there back in March when we were there.

    DaveS. many thanks for that information I will make sure that I visit earlier next year. As I was sitting around six pm awaiting my transfer there were minibuses and coaches picking up party goers and a lot of drunken young lads milling around.If it gets too bad I will be heading for Marsalforn on Gozo I think.

Qawra Coast - St. Paul's Bay

Qawra is a stunning holiday destination overlooking St. Paul's Bay (San Pawl il-Baħar), in close proximity to Mellieħa Bay (Il-Għadira) and Buġibba, even St Paul's Island (Il-Gżejjer ta' San Pawl) can be reached by a few minutes boat trip, a great way of exploring Qawra.

The heart of the Maltese tourism although not so large as the other cities, Qawra affords panoramic views of extraordinary beauty, stunning beaches and a wonderful sea, accommodation facilities offering top-quality services, all kinds of water sports, opportunities for lots of fun in the sun all year around, valuable cultural resources and a splendid Mediterranean climate, Qawra is the perfect holiday destination, especially for families of all ages; the splendid bays and inlets of its sharply indented coast are among the most visited and admired natural attractions, moreover they offer peaceful settings for a range of water based activities and unique opportunities to enjoy a swim. The 3 km. promenade includes recreational spaces, relaxing areas with breathtaking panoramic views on the blue water, especially under the warm colours of the sunset. Qawra's sea and beaches are surely its most visited natural attractions, however it affords a great nightlife throughout the whole year consisting of many bars, pubs, cafés and restaurants very popular among tourists and locals.

The city also boasts a remarkable architecture and a rich cultural heritage, due to its perfect location, it was conceived as one of the most important strategic bases for the activities of the Knights Hospitaller (later known as Knights of St. John or Knights of Malta), among their most famous coastal fortifications the Ghallis Tower (also known as Ta' Fra Ben Tower or Torri tal-Għallis) stands out for its small dimensions as well as for its historical significance; it was built by the Knights of Malta led by the Grandmaster Giovanni Paolo Lascaris around the half of the 17th century, originally a smaller fortification mainly used as watchtower (later reinforced in the 18th century), it is today an eloquent witness to the Maltese military past: the tower stands in the heart of St. Paul's Bay and Salina Bay (Salini Bay) just above the shore, at the end of Qawra Point (Ras il-Qawra), the perfect place for swimming, snorkeling and diving.
