Towns & Villages


Triq San Pawl, St. Paul’s Bay, SPB 3418, Malta


Qawra, together with neighbouring St. Paul's Bay and Buġibba are Malta's largest seaside resorts.

They offer plentiful accommodation ranging from self-catering apartments to hotel complexes and a variety of nightlife and leisure options. The coastline here has some wonderful open seaviews and a vista across to St. Paul's Island, where, according to legend, the ship carrying the Apostle is said to have been wrecked. Standing prominently on the isle is a large statue of the Apostle commemorating this legendary event. The coastline promenade provides a long, though mostly level and easy walk from St. Paul's Bay all the way to Qawra Point, with its tower and views over Salina Bay. St. Paul's Bay started life as a small fishing village.

The parish church of Qawra, dedicated to St Francis of Assisi, was designed by Maltese architect Richard England.
