Malta is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Mediterranean because of its beautiful beaches, wonderful weather and friendly people.
Located to the south of Italy, Malta has had an interesting past and you can see influences from a number of different cultures in the food and architecture here.
We are going to look at 4 tips that should ensure any trip you take to Malta and Gozo is a great one.
First of all we are going to let you know how easy it is to get about the island. At just under 17 miles long and around 9 miles at its widest point, Malta is one of the smallest countries in the world and this is great news for anyone visiting. Because it is so small, nowhere is out of reach and the country is serviced by an excellent bus system that can take you to all the major towns, resorts and sights. Taxis are also a great way to get around the country and see some of the more interesting areas.
Next up we are going to talk about beaches. As you can imagine this small island has its fair share of great beaches and you are never too far away from one. Our pick of the bunch has to go to Golden Bay. This beautiful beach enjoys the sun all day long and has a bar/café to retreat too if it’s all a little too hot for you. You can also enjoy some great water activities like parasailing if you have the guts.
Malta is known for enjoying glorious sunshine all year round but not many people know about how great the city of Valletta is. Enjoying a rich history the islands capital is home to a number of great sights and museums. If you are the kind of person that enjoys a city break you won’t be disappointed with Valletta as it can boast shopping opportunities from exclusive boutiques and designer brands to local markets and more. The city also plays host to a number of great restaurants, bars and clubs so those looking to enjoy a bit of nightlife will find everything you need here.
