We stayed in Qawra which extends along the right side and southwards of Bugibba along the side of Salina Bay (an area that has been used for hundreds of years to extract sea salt from the Ocean) Both areas have excellent hotel and villa accommodation and some great Bars and restaurants with some fantastic beach facilities.
Both Qawra and Bugibba now occupy nearly the entire peninsula with St. Pauls bay on the West side and Salina bay to the East Bugibba and Qawra merge together to become one although Qawra is a little more restrained than the more popular Bugibba. Qawra provides plenty of leisurely diversions including countless restaurants, shops and a number of bars and nightclubs as well as some nice 4 star hotels.

    Gareth, very interesting "new bus" tip here. We visited Malta last November and of course we loved the old buses, although we already heard about the new buses.n
