Out and About
There are lots of bars, pubs and restaurants in Qawra and, as the resort merges with Bugibba, you also have easy access to the multi-screen cinema and the nightlife in and around Bugibba Square. Or why not spend an evening at the Oracle Casino, located at the Dolmen Resort Hotel, which has the excitement of the table games as well as a couple of hundred slots, including many penny machines.
Chill out and indulge in a little pampering at one of the resort's Spas; relax amid the warm tones of the Moroccan styled Le Marquis Spa at the San Antonio Hotel; the contemporary Soul Solutions Spa at the Sunny Coast Resort Hotel or; the serenity of the Myoka Spa at the Dolmen Resort Hotel.
There are some excellent dive spots around the island of Malta (and plenty of diving centres offering courses and dives) and there opportunities for watersports including sausage rides, jet skiing, and windsurfing. The sandy beaches at Golden Bay and Mellieha Bay are both within 10km and easily accessible.
The bus station is just behind the Dolmen Resort Hotel with regular service into Valletta and many other ancient towns and coastal resorts. Alternatively there are organised excursions including boat trips to Gozo and Comino and coach trips to popular sightseeing attractions.
