There’s plenty of family-friendly things to do in Qawra!


Planning an amazing family holiday with your kids can be an exciting and overwhelming experience. From packing your suitcase and making sure that nothing is left behind, to ensuring that you have enough snacks and drinks to keep your kids satisfied throughout your flight, to actually boarding the plane – the build-up to the holiday can be stressful!


But there are a few things you can do to ensure that your trip will be as smooth-sailing as possible. One of those thing is to plan your activities beforehand. Our most important tip would be to choose the right location for your holiday; a place that is child-friendly, to keep your young ones entertained throughout the trip! Pre-booking activities can avoid extra queuing time and even save money, and allowing extra time for activities will alleviate the pressure of a tightly-packed schedule. Accept that things can go wrong, but remember that this is all part of the adventure.


If you’re planning your trip to Malta, then Qawra is definitively one of the most child-friendly locations on the island. Here are the top things to do as a family during your holiday, all of which are located in the vicinity of AX Seashells Resort at Suncrest!


Visit the Malta National Aquarium

If you’re looking for a fun and educational experience to share with your children, then this is it. The Malta National Aquarium in Qawra is home to numerous species of fish, amphibians and reptiles that range from the local to the exotic. The whole family will have a great time exploring the wondrous displays in the water tanks, and learning about the diverse sea life that exists around the world!

Have a Picnic

Make the most of the pleasant weather by heading to the Salina National Park. Within the park is a memorial dedicated to the ex-American President, John F Kennedy, which is the perfect place for a family picnic! You can explore the natural surroundings, play games together and just sit and relax while your kids enjoy the sunshine. While you’re here, why not explore the Salina Nature Reserve and Salt Pans, too? You might spot some unique wildlife during your visit.

Take a Dip in the Sea

Being a seaside town, Qawra has numerous spots from where you can access the sea. Some of the best child-friendly beaches are the rocky Qawra Point beach and the sandy Bugibba Perched Beach. These beaches provide safety and security, as well as places in the area for snacks and drinks.
