Qawra - Islet Promenade Guide

Guide

Qawra is a small town on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Malta. It is located on the north eastern coast, surrounded by the majestic, warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. There is no beach in Qawra, but it is still a popular tourist spot on Malta, full of historical buildings, monuments and picturesque scenes. There are a number of luxurious, and basic hotels and restaurants to serve all tourists visiting Qawra. The town offers many great attractions and activities for the weekend traveller or even the summer vacationer. Car hire in Qawra is available and has become popular with tourists wanting to see the sights in and around the town.

Explore Qawra

Qawra is close to Bugibba and helps to form part of St. Paul's Bay, which is just sixteen kilometers from the capital city of Valletta (pictured above). It is named after the shipwreck of Saint Paul. The localities that form the bay are Burmarrad, Qawra, Buginna, Xemija, Mselliet, and San Martin.

The main road in Qawra is the Dawret-il-Gzejjer, or the Islet Promenade. This is where many of the hotels, resorts, and restaurants are located. It is easy to get from place to place on the roads in the small town, and it is even easier with your own personal vehicle, so book car hire in Qawra before leaving for your holiday.

There are plenty of activities to do here. Though there is really no beach, many tourists swim and bathe from the rocks or their hotel swimming pools. The rocks along the coast are a favourite spot for many to enjoy a few hours of sunbathing. Qawra is also a popular location for water sports, including speed boat and banana boat rides.

The town is also the site of the Qawra Tower. This tower, now a restaurant, was built by the Knights of St. John and is one of many built on the island.

Transport

The closest airport to Qawra is Malta International Airport, located 30 minutes drive south. Car hire is available here also, from popular suppliers Hertz, Dollar, Thrifty, Avis, Sixt, Europcar, Budget and First Car Rental. If you book online in advance of travel you will not only save money and be prepared for your holiday but you will also be eligible to our fabulous offers and huge selection of cars.

If hiring a car is not for you there are buses and taxis available, operating in and around Qawra as well as to and from the airport. However, buses are far cheaper but wont take you to rural parts of the island, so if you wish to explore the coastal beaches then car hire is your best bet.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
