Located 96 kilometres south of Sicily, the stunning Mediterranean island of Malta is brimming with historical wonder and majestic charm.

What the island lacks in size, it makes up for in culture and attractions. As well as festivals and parties all year round, holidays to Malta entice due to the island’s traditional architecture and sustained history, apparent through cultural stalwarts such as museums and ancient harbours. The tourist influx may be large, but the result of such factors is local culture presented with pride. Authentic bistros aren’t easily missed, coupled with restaurants serving everything from Arabic, Sicilian and Greek cuisine. The prevalent culture and beautiful beaches on Malta holidays are there to be absorbed by families of all ages, whether shopping in Sliema or relaxing on the quiet beach in Mellieha Bay. The ripe nightlife is to be taken advantage of for enthusiastic visitors looking for a vibrant atmosphere.

Island Hideaways

All inclusive accommodation caters to your every need. You’ll be spoilt for choice regarding seafront apartments in the quaint towns of St Paul’s Bay and Mdina. The latter is an ancient city endowed with cultural attractions including the majestic St. Paul’s Cathedral dating back to the 12th century, the Medieval Museum and the Natural History Museum. Self-guided audio tours are available for solo visitors, with horse-drawn carriage tours on offer for those who fancy a unique means of travel around the maze-like alleys. Mdina plays host to a stunning beach, ideal for families and grand in its setting. Spend your holidays in Malta in one of Mdina’s 5* hotels overlooking the beach, or source a self-contained B&B. Whatever your needs, the versatility of accommodation across the island is sure to please.

An Island of Diversity

The summer is primetime for those wanting to experience a dynamic and animated nightlife. Many of the island’s clubs and bars are located in Bugibba and Paceville, with music ranging from House to Hip Hop, played by some of the world’s top DJs. If you’re suited to something more sophisticated, Malta delivers a myriad of cultural festivals. The Malta Arts Festival, the Valletta Baroque and the International Jazz festival all take place over the course of a few months.

Valletta is rich with cultural artefacts and entertainment, including St. John’s Cathedral, built in the 16th century. Also located in the capital city of Valletta is the majestic Manoel Theatre, revered as one of the most important arts venues in Malta with performances including operas, poetry recitals and pantomimes. If you’re more inclined to the outdoors, head to Marsamxett or the Grand Harbour for an al fresco lunch or a spot of scuba diving on your Malta holidays.

Families are welcome to explore the sedate beaches and pristine artefacts, with many of the carnivals and open-air events being child friendly. For the restless there are a multiple of hiking and mountain bike track facilities to meet your enthusiasm with pleasure. Cinemas and arts and crafts workshops are also scattered around the city in case sightseeing becomes a little overwhelming.

A mix of Mediterranean food is available throughout the island. Maltese dishes to look out for include lampuki pie, kapunata and rabbit stew. Locally-caught fish can be bought from the regional weekend markets, or sampled in many Maltese restaurants.
