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.

    Hi all, I am new here but have enjoyed reading your comments today. We have been going to Malta since 2012 and love it. Usually stay in Qawra, used to be canifor apts but they were dire. Then had a holiday club thing at Club Riza for couple of years which we loved. Then got coerced into moving to the San Antonio on tourist st. We haven't actually stayed since joining there as one thing and another stopped us. I have a huge hold-all there full of our clothes and toiletries too but wondering if they have still kept them off us. We pay our money each month so would hope so. However we are missing the place so much I thought would look on the webcams. Then read your comments...wow has a lot changed since we have been? We heard club Riza would be closed down and the apartments across the road from it was going to be demolished too...has this happened? We are hoping to get back in Sept this year fingers crossed. If anyone wants to update me on Qawra or Buggiba ...I would love it, thanks

    Derek, Will you still be there for that horrible Lost and Found, Annie Mac music festival, It is 2 to 5 May and I am sure the fish will not be getting much rest during the event. They are advertising Day and Night events, just to make sure that they can cause max noise. Last year I was chatting to a guy who had escaped to Gozo to get away from the mayhem being causes by lost and found visitors in his hotel. Think I may follow his lead to Gozo this yea

    Patricia the hotels fire was in the spa. Pizza Hut is down in Bay Square in Bugibba and was never opposite QP. It was there own restaurant which was there and served pizza. The new restaurant is very slowly progressing and is the excavation/building work extension tomthe back of QP.

    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.
