All About Malta


I always wanted to travel to malta, I hear such lovely things about the place, with picturesque Mediterranean landscapes, people, and architecture, they add a lovely charm to the island.

There are many reasons to visit Malta, firstly the island is supposed to be beautiful, the Maltese are incredibly friendly, and you could spend easily more than a week bouncing between the islands of Malta and Gozo. If you’re looking for a quaint spot for your next vacation to Europe, look no further than Malta.

Here are a few travel tips that you would find useful if planning to travel to Malta.

 

What to Do in Malta

  • Visit Mdina: Settled by the Knights, this walled city has expansive views over the island, offering a lovely village to explore by foot.
  • Take a drive to Dingli Cliffs to the most western point on Malta. It is the highest point on the island, offering a view of the ocean that is second to none.
  • Visit a winery at San Niklaw, that is family owned and has delicious whites.
  • Go to the capital city, Valletta (a World Heritage Site). See St. John’s Co-Cathedral, explore the streets, and take in the views over the Three Cities from the Upper Barakka Gardens.
  • Time your trip with the Malta Classic, and see vintage cars zip through Mdina.
  • Gaze out over the Blue Grotto, or take a boat trip around the coastline to peer up.
  • See the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hagar Qim and Mnajdra Temples.
  • Take an afternoon trip to Comino to swim in the crystal clear waters of the Blue or Crystal Lagoon.
