Malta lies in the heart of the Mediterranean, below Sicily and above Africa’s north coast. It has long been a popular destination for tourists who are attracted by its warm climate, picturesque towns, colourful coastline and friendly English-speaking locals.
The country has a rich past and has often been referred to as an open-air museum. Reminders of the island’s many inhabitants are to be seen throughout – the Romans, Greeks and Normans have all left their mark. Malta’s villages and towns will fascinate the historically minded traveller, with their old churches, fascinating architecture and 16th century walls.
Gozo is a smaller and prettier island, lying north in the Maltese archipelago. This gentler holiday destination is ideal for families and mature tourists. Its craggy coastline is bursting with character and is extremely popular with snorkellers who will love exploring its deep, translucent waters.
Holidays in Malta are great for soaking up some sun but the island is not renowned for its sandy beaches. Lovely beaches are to be found at Mellieha and St George’s Bay, however, and the all-round resorts of Bugibba and Qawra will provide plenty of spots by the sea to enjoy.
Valletta is the island’s fascinating capital and will offer a great mix of shopping, culture and nightlife. For the wildest nights out on the island, head to Paceville – a part of the St. Julian’s Bay resort.
