About Qawra
A seaside resort, predominantly popular with British visitors. Qawra is calmer than Buġibba although the two towns merge into each other, it is difficult to identify if a street is part of Qawra or of its neighbour.
The seaside promenade stretches along the coast of Qawra for over 3km past Buġibba and ends in St. Paul’s Bay. This boardwalk provides terrific views over St Paul’s Bay, especially when sunset colours the sky with impressive colours.
Qawra Coast, Malta
Restaurants, cafes, shops, bars, clubs and a casino can be found within walking distance, other tourist facilities are available in abundance. Water sports dominate the shoreline which is great for swimming, sunbathing and snorkelling.

Qawra – Good to know
The population of St Paul’s Bay (Including Qawra & Buġibba) is about 30,000 and usually doubles as locals and visitors fill the hotels in the summer months.
A regular public transport system operates, with several bus stops through Qawra.
The ‘Hop on & off’ open top buses are a great way to explore Malta and visit the most interesting places. Buses leave from various locations around the town every half hour.
In Maltese ‘Q’ is silent, Qawra is pronounced ‘awra’ or ‘ourrah’.
The Malta National Aquarium is located on the Qawra promenade.
Café del Mar is here too, probably Malta’s top lido and nightspot. A super place to chill, dine and dance.
