You can still see the roots of the holiday village of Qawra as a fishing port when you wander through its streets, despite it now being one of Malta's most popular resorts.
Its promenade offers fabulous views of the islands of Gozo and Comino, as well as the smaller St Paul's islands, all of which can easily be visited on a cruise from Qawra itself.
Half a century after it was first established as a holiday resort, Qawra is still growing, and is one of the island's premier destinations. That said, it is a much more laid-back resort than nearby Bugibba, with a greater emphasis on catering for families and couples, yet still with the pick of the island's beaches close at hand.
This quieter and more upmarket ambience is what makes a holiday in Qawra so popular with families, and while the resort has a good crop of shops selling anything from locally-made souvenirs right up to designer clothes, there are more mainstream stores – along with a much wider variety of entertainment – on offer in Bugibba.
You'll be captivated by the small and relatively undeveloped harbour, around which are clustered the resort's main restaurants, and the old town, which still has the aura of an unspoilt fishing village.
