MELLIEHA

Located on the North West corner of Malta, a holiday to Mellieha offers access to some of Malta's best sandy beaches including one of the largest and most popular sandy beaches on the island - Il Ghadira, more commonly known as Mellieha Bay.

The quiet town of Mellieha itself is situated on a steep hill offering holidaymakers spectacular panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea below, while the larger resort of St Paul's Bay is only a short journey away.

Whilst the largest beach is found in Mellieha, holidaymakers looking for a quieter beach to lose themselves will quickly find the picturesque Ramla and Paradise Bays to the north or the rocky Anchor Bay just beyond the western headland.
Expand your horizons on a Mellieha Holiday

For those seeking the delights of Maltese cuisine, a Mellieha holiday offers access to a selection of small, but nevertheless fantastic local restaurants, while a greater variety can be found in the nearby larger towns of Buggiba and Qawra. Those who wish to see another side of the Maltese Islands during their holiday to Mellieha, a day trip to Gozo or Comino is well worthwhile, the ferry port is only a short distance away for Gozo and there are plentiful Comino day trips by speedboat available.

QAWRA

Bay watch

Qawra – pronounced awra – is a charming, purpose-built resort in north-east Malta. The town is set around scenic St Paul’s Bay, with luxury, high-rise hotels hugging the seafront. It works on 2 levels – as a vibrant summer destination, but also as a stress-free place to enjoy a winter break. And it blends seamlessly into Buggiba, its bolder, brasher, bayside neighbour, which boasts a pretty harbour and a waterpark along its brand-new promenade.

Qawra Point

At Qawra Point, the northernmost tip of St Paul’s Bay, there’s a rocky Blue Flag beach with a breathtaking setting that makes it a people magnet in the summer months. There’s waterskiing and jet-skiing, as well as scuba diving excursions on tap. Plus, you’ll find sunloungers for hire, and a reggae bar and restaurant. Further south along St Paul’s Bay, Qawra has a handful of lidos with pools, which make a popular alternative to the beach.

The layout

A scenic promenade edged with pineapple trees follows the arc of the bay between Qawra to Bugibba. Its focal point is the 16th-century Qawra Tower. Once a fortress, this historical landmark is now home to a swimming pool and restaurant. But the real heartbeat of the resort is Tourist Street and the roads spilling off it. Here, you’ll find a huge array of restaurants and pubs that satisfy both British and Mediterranean palates, and stay open ‘til the small hours.

Close to Mdina

Around half an hour's drive away is Mdina, the old capital of Malta. It’s a gorgeous Medieval city built from golden stone with a Baroque cathedral that takes centre-stage. Climb the bastion walls that circle the town and the best views of the island open out before you. Then explore the hushed alleys and piazzas and you’ll see why they call this the Silent City.
