    Hi All, staying here right now. No brollies out yet as too windy say the staff. Summer is about to start though and the new ones will be issued. Pool is still freezing cols but indoor a lot warmer. Happy Mums day, Cisk.

    Hi Kate ...believe me we have tried in the past ! I have been to the QP many times and it's always the same old story ...no proof that the people have "gone away" for the day ! I also requested at the time of the party that the umbrellas be returned to their positions ...bar staff very helpful ...we will let the management know etc ...but was anything done ? Nope ! I know as well as you do that the sun disappears behind the hotel at a certain time but seems that does not deter the lounger and umbrella hoggers :)

    Denise, I would have moved the towels or asked pool staff to move them. But to,be honest at this time of year or in October little point in leaving there until 3 or 4 pm as the sun has gone off the majority of sunloungers and staff are stacking the loungers and chairs away as well as taking the flags down from the poles on the footpath above. If there aren't any when you go and it's too warm ask the staff.

    Thanks Kate ! Was just wondering because several umbrellas were removed and never put back after a private party last October in the pool area. Those of us who didn't want to roast had to take refuge in the bar area rather than on the loungers due to some rude people "reserving" the loungers at 7am and then going off for the day until around 3-4pm. I wish the QP would enforce its "rule" that people cannot reserve loungers !

    Denise. Too early in the season and very few umbrellas up anywhere yet. Remember QP pool picks up the strong winds off the sea. We came home last weekend after a few weeks there and although people are on the sun loungers what you cannot always make out from the webcam, which you can walking past on the footpath, is many are not wearing swimwear but jeans, etc.

    Richard, you're welcome. Our friend who lives in Qawra rang and told me earlier this week, so heaven knows what we'll find when we land tomorrow! Looking at the airport website, it seems as though it's the high traffic areas being done now, Arrivals hall etc. Safe journey for you too Richard, have a good holiday too.

    Morning Skyliners, just to let anyone travelling to Malta in the next week or so (me, Derek, Richard) There is a major refurbishment going on at the airport. Walls /doors have moved and it is taking a bit longer to get through airport. My friend told me but the info is also on Luqa website. Hard hats at the ready!

    Evening Derek, Richard and Skyliners everywhere.I have friends who won't stay anywhere else but QP, they always have a good time. We've not been but have used the seafront lido facilities. The Euro Club has had a major refit in the last few years and re-opened last year, it looks canny Derek. We're at the Soreda again, we love it there. Fabulous food, wonderful staff! We have an even longer walk than you to the Sailors Derek, but we'll manage....Not a Cisk fan, Martens for me. See you soon.

    Hi Viv, Thanks for the advice. I am actually camping out in the QP Hotel for a week having taken a deal with them. Hoping for a quiet room away from the ballroom as instructed. Slowly working my around the island in different hotels. I am lucky to have a friend who lives part time on the island and lives a few streets away in San Pawl. She arrived yesterday. Hoping her driving skills again will get us to parts of the island that are off the bus routes. The buses are really good value and a terrific way to see the island for those that don't know. Stay warm..........now about packing the hot water bottle? Cisk

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.
