Qawra & Buggiba Holidays

If you are looking for a holiday resort with high quality hotels, lovey beaches and a variety of other things to do, look no further than Bugibba and Qawra!

Bugibba isn’t a genuine Maltese town, it’s a holiday resort, but what it lacks in history and culture it more than makes up for in comfort and enjoyment, so it’s a perfect choice for a family holiday. Qawra is a very small resort located next to Buggiba, both have hotels that are a really good standard that offer lots to do and some of them offer their own entertainment. There’s also a bustling promenade lined with restaurants, cafes, and shops where visitors can enjoy leisurely walks and indulge in delicious local cuisine.

All in all we’d say Bugiba and Qawra tick all the boxes for a great family holiday!

Qawra & Buggiba Travel Guide

At a Glance

Buggiba and Qawra are located on the beautiful north coast of Malta and are part of a cluster of villages which includes St Paul's Bay. They are all next to each other and share the seaside promenade that stretches for over three miles taking in all three villages.

Bugibba also serves as a convenient base for exploring nearby attractions such as the Malta National Aquarium and St. Paul's Bay. With its lively ambiance and seaside charm we'd say Bugibba offers a memorable experience for travellers seeking a blend of relaxation and entertainment. The ferry port is not far away so you can have a day out to Gozo or Camino.

When the sun goes down you can enjoy dinner in the restaurants along the promenade that enjoy beautiful sea views and then a few drinks in the numerous bars. During the summer a few clubs pop up so the resort really comes alive.

Getting Around

Getting around Malta is easy, mainly due to the fact it's a small island but also because of the excellent bus services that serve all the major tourist areas and are inexpensive and efficient.

There's a bus terminus in Bugibba town centre from where you can catch any of three buses to Valetta and anywhere else on the island. You can also get a bus to and from Malta Airport, the journey takes about an hour and the price of a ticket is just £2!

Eating and Drinking

Eating out is a must as it gives you the chance to sample the delicious local food with influences from across the Mediterranean to North Africa that creates a unique fusion of tastes. There are restaurants in Buggiba and Qawra to suit any budget too, from a local café serving fresh fish to fine dining restaurants with spectacular sea views.

Things to See and Do

There's lots to see and do in and around Buggiba, Qawra and Malta itself. We've said about the beautiful beach but there are plenty of other things to do. There's a water park next to the beach and one in the sea would you believe! There's also the Malta National Aquarium which is a great way to spend a few hours with the family.

You can catch a boat from St Paul's Bay (very close to Buggiba) to Gozo and Camino for a visit to the Blue Lagoon. You can also combine both and have a day at sea with several vessels moored in the harbour. There's also a Turkish Gullet, but for this you need to go to Valetta.

If you make it to Valetta then the Malta Experience is also good. It's like a cinema where you take your seat and a film tells you all about the history of Malta. It gets really interesting when your seat starts shaking and tipping backwards and forwards! Great fun. There is also a 'hop on hop off' sightseeing bus which is always worth doing, its relaxing and you get a lot of information about Malta.

You can also go parasailing where you get to see Malta from a different view!


Nightlife in Buggiba is varied. There are numerous bars and a few clubs in the village plus beach bars and in Qawra (next to Buggiba and walking distance) there is Café del Mar, which is a Lido by day and hosts parties in the evenings. If you are feeling lucky there is also a Casino, which is next to the Hotel Dolmen.


There are many different events in Malta throughout the year, including folklore events, classical music events and recitals, parades celebrating Malta's history or the SummerDaze festival with bands and singers holding concerts across Malta in August.

There also beer festivals and a festival for arts and crafts. You name it and there's probably a festival for it in Malta!
