In the middle of the Mediterranean, Malta offers warm weather, inviting bays, and exploration opportunities. This small but vibrant island with a 7,000-year history attracts both history enthusiasts and younger crowds. Notable sites include the 16th-century St John's Co-Cathedral, home to the largest signed work of artist Caravaggio, and the grand palazzo Casa Rocca Piccola.
Malta also showcases natural wonders such as the Blue Grotto and Blue Lagoon, charming hilltop villages, and fishing harbours. Comino, an unspoiled and peaceful getaway, is perfect for snorkeling, walking, and photography, plus it's renowned for its seafood and Maltese cuisine influenced by Middle Eastern and Sicilian flavours.
Holidays to Malta are ideal for both, couples and families, and are just a 3 hour flight from the UK. Accommodation options range from waterfront hotels in Gozo to luxury stays in Valletta or St George's Bay resorts.
The coast's blend of rocky coves and sandy shores is great for sunbathing, with Bugibba, Qawra, and Mellieha Bay being popular spots. Divers cherish Malta for its captivating underwater world, featuring wrecks and caves.
