Malta Qawra may not be the most interesting place to visit because too many people it seems a bit dull. However, if you want to experience a good balance of tradition and exploration, then I am sure you will find this place to be quite interesting. One of the closest towns to Qawra is Mellieha, it is home to one of the longest sandy beaches on that side.

It is one beach where you can enjoy the sun and the sea by means of water sports. Water sports are extremely popular that end and again that is something that we can jump into later on. Qawra is also home to many dive schools which provide services for both beginners as well as professionals. So if you feel like you may want to take up a diving course which will be filled with much exploration and experience then hurry along, they are waiting. 

Things to do

Visit Malta’s Largest Aqua Park

Further south from Qawra, which takes roughly a few minutes by bus. You can find one of Malta’s largest and most popular aqua parks. The park is suitable for all family members, be it young or old. You will find that you can splash around in the wave pool, take thrilling rides down the slides, or relax and hang around in the lazy river. 

There’s also an animation team dedicated to providing full days of fun, packed with games, tropical dances, volleyball, salsa lessons, and aerobics at that same aqua park. If that’s not enough, you could also swim with dolphins or watch seal and dolphin shows in the same park. However, just a day trying to do everything at that park would leave you exhausted. 

Visit Gozo

One of the best things about the Qawra Malta area is its vicinity to Cirkewwa. This is the point from which a ferry links Malta to Gozo Island where you’ll find an abundance of things to do. Gozo is the second-largest island and it has a lot of things to explore. 

Close to it, there is the Blue Hole, Azure Window and a coral garden that is just amazing to look at. It’s like nature’s wonders all flee there. However, this is where the diving courses come in. If you want to explore these places you may need to learn diving first. 

You could also take a boat ride from the shore that could take you to see the wonders of the Maltese coast, not to mention some of our loveliest bays, such as the crystal-blue also known as the Blue Lagoon in Comino.

Check out the Blue Hole

As we just said, visiting Gozo should be on your list of things to do. It forms part of Malta, and it is rather different in both its traditions and culture. Gozo is only some 20 minutes away from Qawra and surely that makes it worth a day trip right? 

When you get to Gozo there is the Blue Hole which is worth the drive, walk and check. The whole experience of seeing it and then being in it is very much worth it. You get to see marine life and a whole new world under the sea and in the water. 

Drinks and Bars

In Malta, you can find many bars and pubs. Some which are children friendly and some which are not. Various bars and pubs can be found in the Qawra area, most with an English or Irish feel. You can find a good selection of ales and lagers at Murphy’s Irish Pub, located towards the end of the main road Triq it-Turisti

There’s also a small little bar with a small but sheltered outside terrace overlooking Ta` Fra Ben beach called the Ta` Fra Ben Reggae Bar. You can enjoy a pretty great and calm atmosphere there, especially if you are a reggae fan. 

Visit Salina National Park and Kennedy Grove

On the edge of Qawra, towards the South of the wider area of St. Paul’s Bay you can find Salina National Park and Kennedy Grove. It’s a great place if you are looking to see some wildlife and some exciting sites. It may not look exactly like a zoo, but it has surprisingly amazing things that you might enjoy doing. 

Nearby, you can also find the salt pans also called is-Salini and a Bird Park. While the salt pans aren’t really worth a visit as such they’re still something to see and you may as well take some photos as part of your authentic Maltese experience. The bird park, on the other hand, does have a variety of local bird species which aren’t found everywhere in the world. 

Final Thoughts 

Well, in conclusion, all I can say is aside from exploiting the marine and aquatic life, enjoying some Mediterranean food and enjoying some drink and diving lessons. There is not much to do in Malta Qawra. The best say you could enjoy this place is by visiting the areas around it or exploiting what it has to offer. For Maltese traditional and local experiences this is the place but that’s the only thing you’ll have.
