Mini guide to Qawra
The resort of Qawra on Malta may not be as hectic as the neighbouring Bugibba;
however, it nevertheless remains a popular destination, with its pleasant town
and quaint fishing village. The nearby beaches offer all kinds of activities;
meanwhile the evenings are lit by a multitude of fine restaurants.
The town's main historical site is the Qawra Tower, built at the tip of the
peninsula by Grand Master Martin de Redin and containing interesting artefacts.
The tower is easily accessible on foot.
At the local beaches, you can relax in the sun or enjoy one of the many water
sports. Scuba diving is popular, and there's a vibrant coral reef where you
can take part in the 'underwater safari'. Also of interest is a lido, with waterslides
and pirate ships for the kids.
Try Mediterranean dishes at the many restaurants situated all over town. Specialties
include fresh fish and other seafood; if you have never had lobster or octopus,
Malta is a good place to try them. A popular drink here is 'Kinnie', a bittersweet
non-alcoholic fizzy beverage.
Adjoining Qawra is the much more lively resort of Bugibba. Here you can display
your dancing propensities in the seemingly endless night. The beaches at Bugibba
are also more hectic and can be overcrowded in the busy season.
