1. Better not to drink tap water (our water doesn't come from the mountains!)
2. Your mobile should work the same (I think) you might have different providers although am not sure about it... when I travel I use the one that my mob detect...
3.Your area is nice for a swim, however if you are after a nice sandy beach I suggest that you go further north... like 15-20 drive... Mellieha Bay commonly known as Ghadria Bay or Armier Bay further north to the former.
I also suggest taking a boat trip to our sister isl of Gozo.
4. Pizza ... from 7.00 eur I guess... I suggest some local beer / wine and food too
5. that would be nice.
one question... do you intend to drive?
Must go places : Valletta (cap City) Mdina (old Cap city) Vittoriosa, Hagar Qim / Mnajdra (older than the pyramids in Egypt) and the surrounding areas.

The cheapest meal you could have is definitely something from our countless traditional Pastizzi shops around the island though. Not healthy, but worth trying out for locals and extremely cheap.
ramsej hit the nail on the head with his comment on beaches. You should definitely try the beaches in your area though. Ta' Fra Ben in Qawra is one of my personal favourites, though it isn't a sandy beach. It's still very hot here and unlikely to cool down any time soon, so you'll definitely enjoy the sea.
When roaming your phone usually connects automatically to a local provider without changing your sim card. Of course using a third-party provider means that everything is more expensive, especially mobile internet, so be careful about that.
EDIT: to ramsej's list I would also add a day-trip to Gozo and the Blue Grotto in Zurrieq. If you can catch a boat cruise to Comino it's also wonderful, and I believe the trip is not too expensive. Keep in mind though that Comino is almost uninhabited, so it's best to pack your own food and drinks.

1. Can I drink water from the tap or should I buy bottled water?
2. How does the roaming thing work in the EU? Will my mobile work in Malta as in Germany? This stuff is very foreign to me.
3. I will stay in a resort in St.Paul's (Bugibba, Qawra). What are the good beaches and things to do around?
4. How much a pizza costs in a normal restaurant? I can eat almost anything, except onions. **** onions.
5. Anyone interested in maybe doing a car trip around the islands? I always like to hear about the place from locals.
For now that's it... More to come, I am sure.
