From this relaxing-yet-lively seaside village, you can visit some of Malta’s most beautiful bays with ease, as Qawra is perfectly located in the northern region of Malta.

Qawra Point Beach

A 3.5 kilometre seaside promenade stretching from Qawra to Buġibba and St. Paul’s Bay is home to numerous swimming spots of visitors. One notable spot is Qawra Point Beach, a hotspot for snorkelers due to its clear waters and rich underwater life. Divers are also drawn towards this Qawra Beach, where the 15 metre Fra Ben Cave is found. On a sunny day, divers can see rays of sunlight dancing around the rock.
