Qawra is a bustling tourist resort on the popular holiday island of Malta. Located on the north east coast, Qawra is part of the St Paul's Bay area, a destination favoured by many British travellers for its fantastic weather, stunning scenery and range of attractions.
Packed full of restaurants, shops and bars, Qawra is a fairly large tourist resort that still manages to retain its Maltese charm. It offers a more relaxed holiday destination in comparison to its livelier neighbour Bugibba, which makes up the other half of St Paul's Bay.
Why visit Qawra?
Qawra's location makes it an ideal pick for those wanting a sun-drenched holiday with lots of activities and attractions. It's a top spot from which to explore the surrounding area and many walkers take advantage of the accessible terrain and rich countryside.
If you fancy some culture then Malta's capital Valetta is easily accessible from your holiday to Qawra. Experience true Maltese life within the streets of this busy working city, which is awash with baroque architecture, fascinating museums and beautiful squares.
What are the beaches like in Qawra?
Malta is known for its rugged landscape, with most beaches being rocky, but a Qawra holiday offers the best of both worlds. As well as having its own rocky beach it is also near to the largest sand beach on the island, Mellieha.
Its rocky coastline is ideal for water sports and the area has an excellent reputation for diving. Snorkelling is also a favoured activity with holidaymakers thanks to the warm clear waters of the Mediterranean.
Eating out in Qawra
When the sun goes down you'll find the relaxed daytime attitude carries on into night. Numerous restaurants line the resort's streets offering a wide choice of international dishes. Italian cuisine is the most readily available but if you're looking for traditional Maltese specialties then head for the smaller locally run restaurants and sample some pastizzi, local pastries.
