    Avril, you must be looking at a different place to me by the Bugibba/Qawra Post Office. Nothing been built yet as it's just a very big excavation. But it is chaotic there especially when traffic lights not working. Good they have put two new crossings there for pedestrians.

    Seen what's being built on the front near the post office? It will be a passage/tunnel from the San Antonio hotel to the shore.
    Traffic chaos on the road.

    Avril. The car park and tennis courts at the back of Qawra Palace have gone and currently there is a massive whole where they have excavated. Couple of big cranes been there with boarding all around the building site. Don't think they've started to build the new block as not seen any building materials.

    Patricia. It wasn't a Pizza Hut across from Qawra Palace. Pizza Hut was down in Bay Square in Bugibba. It was an outdoor restaurant here which sold Pizza, etc. Apparently it is now to be a closed in restaurant with plenty of glass.

    Just read the Malta Independent report that planning permission has been granted for the rebuilding of The Seaview Hotel. It will not be as high as was first requested, but looks like it will be a 10 floor building, with two underground levels for parking, a gym and a pool. No information on start date, but as the site looks to be ready for building work to commence, I am sure we will soon be seeing work starting.

    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

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.
