Qawra is especially popular with the large number of clients who enjoy getting out from their chosen hotel during the day or the evening and enjoying the calm and easy pace of Malta by strolling along the popular promenade which runs through Bugibba and up to St. Pauls Bay in the north. The 3 Km length of this promenade ensures that there is plenty to see and do along the way.

The Seashells Resort sits directly facing the popular Salina bay and boasts fantastic views of the open seas.  This popular and established 4* resort has an extensive range of facilities to cater for all members of the family. Local transport to all areas of Malta can be found directly next to the hotel making the Suncrest ideally positioned for exploring all of Malta.

Points of Interest

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 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.
