Health & Wellness:
Qawra, together with neighbouring St. Paul's Bay and Bugibba 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 sea views 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 an easy walk from St. Paul's Bay 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.
The resorts of Qawra & Bugibba make up the wider district of St Paul’s Bay. The town of St. Pauls Bay is where St Paul was allegedly shipwrecked during his voyage to Rome. The resorts of Qawra & Bugibba were built in the 1980s to cater for the increase in tourism to Malta. The centre of Bugibba has a popular square where you can find plenty of shops, bars, budget restaurants, nightclubs and a small harbour from where it is possible to find several pleasure boats offering excursions to St. Pauls islands. Swimming and water sports take place off the promenade and at lidos along the rocky coastline.
