The Bella Vista hotel is a modern newly built hotel having 157 rooms. All rooms are well equipped with balcony, bathroom ensuite and most rooms have picturesque country views and pool views.

The Hotel restaurant offers an exciting Mediterranean cuisine which is served buffet style. It is open for breakfast lunch and dinner. Live music is also provided daily in the Tate Lounge bar.

The Area and Things to Do

The tournament has Qawra as its base.

Qwara has been a fishing village for over a thousand years and it is now popular for swimming, shopping, restaurants, cafes and beach bars. Today, it is one of Malta’s most popular touristic villages. Pleasant walks along the promenade offer stunning views of St.Paul’s Islands, Gozo and Comino. Apart from beaches and water sports facilities, one can spend the day on one of the cruises available in the area.

Things to Do

Ta` Fra Ben beach is a great place to go for a swim, although there’s no sandy patch. You can rent deck chairs and an umbrella, though. It’s also a great place for snorkelling with crystal clear water and interesting underwater views of local marine life.

The National Aquarium is located nearby Ta` Fra Ben and is a fairly recent addition to the area. You can see some local (and foreign) sea life here and enjoy some lunch/dinner at its restaurant.

If you like cars, the Malta Classic Car Museum is worth a visit. It’s not uncommon to come across antique cars that still drive around in Malta and the museum’s collected a number of models for permanent display.

On the edge of Qawra, towards the South of the wider area of St. Paul’s Bay you can find Salina National Park and Kennedy Grove. Nearby, you can also find the salt pans (is-Salini) and a Bird Park. While the salt pans aren’t really worth a visit as such, the Bird Park does house a variety of local bird species.

Mediterraneo Marine Park offering entertainment alongside a learning experience unique in its kind. It is a great way for adults and children to understand more about the marine life and its inhabitants through edutainment. Spend a fantastic and unforgettable day at the Marine park in Malta where you can swim with dolphins, see sea lions, exotic birds, reptiles and more.

The Splash & Fun Water Park is located on the coast road next to the White Rocks and Bahar Ic-Caghaq and is a large water park for the whole family.

The Park has several swimming pools, water slides, Dinosaur Park & Splash Land, a large wave pool, lazy river and deck chairs to relax on, right by the Mediterranean Sea.

For the more active children and adults there are several activities throughout the day organised by the animators to participate in. There is a snack bar available onsite as well as plenty of parking spaces.

Mirabilandia Parks –  SS16, km 162, 48125 Savio RA (13 miles from Cesenatico)

Mirabilandia is the biggest amusement park in Italy, With a total area of 850.000 sqm It has an area of 30 hectares, with an additional waterworld area of 10 hectares, called Mirabilandia Beach.

The most notable attractions are the Katun inverted roller coaster and the iSpeed launched coaster. It has the world’s tallest Watercoaster, the “Divertical” with a height of 60 m.

It also is home to the 90-metre tall Eurowheel, Europe’s second tallest Ferris wheel.
The areas present since it opened in 1992 are:
Dolce vita studios (Italy sixties);
Motorworld
La vecchia Europa (“The old Europe”, the less scenic area, with rides of ancient origin);
Adventureland (an leafy area)
Bimbopoli (children’s area)

In 1997, new scenery and themes, depicting exotic and fantastic places, were added to the park. These mostly related to the world of adventure: the entrance plaza was edited in pirate-style and renamed Pirate Bay, whilst the restaurants had a similar re-theming (like the “Locanda del Faro”).

The Katun inverted roller coaster was built in 1999, surrounded by a visually arresting theme (the “City of Sian Ka’an”, with pre-Columbian Maya civilization architecture).

In 2000, the look of the two mascots of the park, Otto Leprotto the European hare and Mike the mallard (two animal species widely visible in the park or in the meadows around the central lake) were modified.

In 2003 Mirabeach was created, a Caribbean-style watery zone with hydraulic games. In 2006 the horror/western-style dark ride Ghostvillewas staged. In 2007 the themed attraction Raratonga was added.

In 2008 the dark ride shooter Reset was added, along with the adjacent footpath outside. iSpeed launched coaster took the place of Sierra tonante (“Booming Sierra”) in 2009.

On April 26, 2011, Ghostville was retired, replaced during the season by a walking path instead of wagons. It was opened July 13, 2011 with the name Phobia.

Included in your tournament package are a free entrance ticket to the park for two days.
