Bugibba Things to Do
Bugibba is a part of St. Paul’s Bay, which itself is located in the Norther Region of Malta. Because of its popularity as a tourist resort, its many beaches, and its varied nightlife, there are many things to do for visiting tourists.
The Classic Cars
Advertised all over Malta is the Classic Car Museum, which is located in Qawra just near the Bugibba Bus Station. It is a large museum with a collection of cars going back over 50 years. Many of the most notable are the classic vehicles from the 1940s and 50s, all presented in in top notch condition and set among various scenes depicting scenes from the 20th century. The cars range from classics to the latest BMW’s, Jaguars, and Ferraris. They also have some classic motorbikes and other memorabilia related to classic cars.
Qawra tower is situated near Qawra point and formed a part of the fortifications built by the Knights of Saint John. These fortifications were originally supposed to stretch all the way down to Valleta and beyond but were never fully completed. Only the Qawra section was finished. The Tower was built in 1637 and later added onto with a Semicircular Gun Platform. Later, there was a coastal entrenchment wall constructed that consisted of flat faced artillery platforms linked together by curtain walls.
The bastion surrounding the tower now houses a pool and sunbathing area and visitors can still visit the old coastal entrenchment wall, which formed a vital part of the defenses built by the Knights.
There are many beautiful places to visit while walking around outdoors in Bugibba. Bugibba Square is very popular with locals and tourists alike as it directly faces the waterfront and overlooks the sea. Birdpark Malta, meanwhile, provides a protected wetland habitat for all kinds of species of birds.
