The Best Beaches and Bays in Qawra
Does your idea of a holiday in Qawra involve a long lazy day lounging at the beach and enjoying the most of the Maltese sun? If so, you might want to know more about the beaches near Qawra Malta and where best to go if you want to work on your tan and have a dip in the sea.
Qawra Malta beach - Qawra itself doesn’t have a natural sandy beach down by the seafront, but luckily the town is right beside Bugibba and beautiful St. Pauls Bay. This is the most popular beach on the this side of the island, although it is a rocky one. Walk by here any day of the week and you’ll find locals with their towels out on the flat rocks. This beach is best suited for couples or young groups on holidays due to the nature of the beach. We’d advise families with small children not to use this beach due to the rocks. There is a very popular man made perched beach in Bugibba, a perfect spot for those who do not want to travel too far to find a sandy beach.
If you are part of a family and looking for a family friendly beach, head a little further along the coast to St. George’s Bay. Over the last decade it has had a lot of renovation to turn it in to a family friendly beach as it’s located in St Julians, one of the most popular spots for fun in Malta. This beach has all the facilities a family would need. There is a lifeguard on duty, the waters are shallow enough to kids to paddle in, umbrellas can be rented to provide shade and there are restrooms too.
The biggest sandy beach close to Qawra is roughly 8km away at Mellieha Bay. Again this is another beach suitable for families with small children as it has shallow waters for up to 50m out. It is also an activity heavy area with many water sports on offer. Head here on a weekend and you’ll see plenty of people out in the water windsurfing, paddle boarding and water-skiing.
