Resort Information

Set on the quieter side of St Paul's Bay, but with easy access to lively and colourful Bugibba, Qawra offers plenty of interest, with sea-front bars and cafes as well as a sandy beach fringing the bay. Stroll along the promenade to Qawra Point, or perhaps enjoy a long lunch in the sunshine.


Day One

Fly to Malta, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your chosen hotel in the delightful Qawra area of St Paul's Bay.

Day Two

Spend today relaxing in your hotel or exploring your surroundings at your leisure.

Day Three

Join your Tour Manager for an included exploration of Valletta, the island's fascinating capital. After a visit to the Malta Experience, an award-winning audio-visual presentation that places the city and the island in their historical context, you'll see the major sights, including the Auberge de Castille, magnificent former home to the Knights of St John and now the Prime Minister's office, and the Upper Barracca Gardens.

Day Four

Today's included excursion will see you board the ferry for a crossing to the quaint port of Mgarr, gateway to Gozo - Malta's smaller, greener sister isle.

Visit Victoria - the island's fortified capital - and the fascinating 'Inland Sea' at Dwerja. We'll also stop at Calypso's Cave overlooking sandy Ramla Bay, and the delightful coastal resort of Xlendi, before returning to Malta past the tiny islet of Comino.

Day Five

Spend your day resting and relaxing, and in the evening, join your fellow guests for an evening of traditional Maltese hospitality in the historic town of Mosta. Enjoy a meal of Maltese cuisine served by waiters dressed in authentic period costume, as well as a display of traditional Maltese music and dancing.

Day Six

On today's included tour you'll travel inland to Mdina, the ancient, fortified former capital with its spectacular rampart views and its narrow stone-built streets in the beautiful 'silent city'.

The tour also includes the Grotto at Rabat, where Bellini's 'St Paul' depicts the apostle's shipwreck on the island, and the famous domed church at Mosta, which survived a direct hit during the WW2 bombardment of the island.

Day Seven

Our final included excursion explores the area across from Valletta's Grand Harbour, where three medieval 'cities' reflect the island's rich history. See one of the earliest Maltese Crosses in Vittoriosa, one of the Mediterranean's oldest dockyards at Cospicua, and Senglea with its waterside houses and steps down to the sea.

You'll also pay a visit to the colourful fishing village of Marsxlokk, with its busy market, and Tarxien, where ancient temples contain carved symbols not dissimilar to Celtic engravings.

Day Eight

Transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 30 minutes.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

Departures from Belfast, East Midlands and Newcastle

Customers flying from these airports depart and return one day later that the standard departures. As a result, their excursion programme will begin on Day Two, rather than Day Three, and will end with a day to relax in the resort.

Buckingham Friends
Our guide, Agnes, was very informative and the trips were interesting and not too tiring as we generally left the hotel at 9.30 and were back by 5. However our rep didn't meet us at the airport to accompany us to the hotel, same thing happened on the return. The welcome meeting was scheduled at 5pm the day we arrived, our flight wasn't due to land till 3.25pm, it was late, so therefore we missed the meeting. Even if the flight had been on time we'd have had a job getting to the welcome meeting.
