Magnificent Malta

From its blissful beaches to its considerable history, holidays to Malta are brimming with historical wonder and majestic charm.

This Mediterranean island might be small but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in culture and things to do. As well as its vibrant year-round festivals and parties, Malta holidays entice holidaymakers in search of its traditional architecture and rich history, apparent through its many museums and ancient harbours. There’s plenty to savour too, in the form of authentic restaurants serving up Arabic, Sicilian and Greek cuisine. Whether you’re seeking sand and sunshine or an eye-opening cultural journey, you’ll find something to suit – shopping in Sliema will fulfil shopaholic’s desires while the quiet sands of Mellieha Bay will cater to those looking for some relaxation. After all that, there’s also a chance to put on your dancing shoes with Malta’s invigorating nightlife.

Sunshine and Sand

Bracing sea air and luxurious landscapes greet you on your holidays in Malta, wherever you choose to stay. All-inclusive getaways just footsteps away from the seafront can be found in St Paul’s Bay, while Mdina hosts a charm all of its own. The latter is an ancient city boasting a wealth of cultural attractions including St. Paul’s Cathedral dating back to the 12th century, the Medieval Museum and the Natural History Museum. It also plays host to a stunning beach, ideal for families and picturesque in its setting. Spend your holidays in Malta in one of the decadent hotels overlooking the sea or kick back in a comfortable room away from the island’s hustle and bustle. Whatever your needs, the versatility of accommodation across Malta is sure to please.

An Island of Diversity

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

Valletta has many cultural sites worth visiting, including St. John’s Cathedral, built in the 16th century. Also located in the capital city is the majestic Manoel Theatre, revered as one of the most important arts venues on the island 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.

Malta holidays are ideal for families, with a wealth of breath-taking beaches and ancient artefacts to explore. Many of the carnivals and open-air events are child friendly too, as well as a multitude of hiking and mountain biking tracks to meet your enthusiasm. Cinemas and arts and crafts workshops are also scattered around the city in case sightseeing becomes a little overwhelming.

After all that activity, you’re likely to be in need of fuel. A mix of Mediterranean food is available throughout the island, with mouth-watering Maltese dishes such as lampuki pie and rabbit stew. Locally-caught fish can be bought from the regional weekend markets or sampled in many Maltese restaurants.
