The Charm of Islands

Malta isn’t just one single island; it’s a captivating trio made up of Malta, Gozo and Comino. Boat tours are readily available to assist travelers to explore the full beauty of this archipelago. Despite its relatively small size, Malta is bursting with sights to see and experiences to savour. 

A Journey Through History

The island’s past is a vibrant tapestry woven by Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Byzantines, Romans and many other visitors during the course of history. The Knights of the Order of St. John ruled Malta for centuries, followed by the French and the British. Although Malta became a republic in 1974, the echoes of its past are palpable everywhere. 

Getting Around the Island

Most visitors’ plans start with lounging at the beach all day, but Malta’s rich culture is sure to entice you to explore. Roaming the island is effortless. One can expect a bit more company on the roads during certain times, but with the services of public buses, conventional taxis or ride-hailing apps, the commute can be very straightforward. 

Savour the Flavours

Malta’s cuisine is a delightful blend of Mediterranean flavours. Sample pastizzi for a true Maltese experience; pick your preferred fresh fish for lunch or opt for the popular dish of rabbit for dinner. Dining usually begins at around 20:00, adding to a lively nighttime atmosphere. 

Outdoor Adventures

Embracing the great outdoors is part and parcel of a Mediterranean holiday. Malta offers numerous walking routes for leisurely exploration, but adrenaline junkies will find plenty to excite them, too. Rock climbing, water skiing, sailing, wakeboarding and diving are some of the more popular activities. 

Year-Round Sunshine

The island and its inhabitants bask in the marvel of having 300 days of annual sunshine. Malta’s clear blue skies and golden sands embrace the Mediterranean climate, with which it has been blessed, to ensure pleasant temperatures even in winter. 

After-Dark Delights

Cocktails at an alfresco bar by the sea, watching the sun set over the island or perhaps something livelier; Malta has got it all. Expect pulsating clubs and late-night bars that reveal a different side to the island’s mellow morning vibe.
