Top Things about Malta

Malta-Famous-Blue-Lagoon-In-Comino-islandWarm yellow stone buildings glow in the near year-round sunshine, providing a striking contrast to the deep turquoise of the sea. This fantastic architecture speaks of the past, of the people who walked this island in centuries gone by. Malta is a place of discovery, ancient history, with refreshing holiday ideas, from relaxing by the pool to taking an adventure holiday. 

Surrounded by the warm Mediterranean, there are hundreds of water-related activities, from scuba diving to yachting, jet skiing to windsurfing. Take a para-kiting trip from one of the sandy beaches to get a birds-eye look at the island. Horse riding is a popular pastime on the island, while more sedentary sports, such as Maltese lawn bowling are traditional amongst the locals. That’s if soaking up the rich history and natural seashore scenes is not your caper. 

Best Cities to Visit

Valletta is the capital city of Malta and it is here that many articles of historical importance have been gathered and put on display in the Museum of Archaeology. It was in Malta that the Knights of St. John defended Christianity and there are a number of sites, for anyone who is interested, to visit; they include Fort St. Angelo and Fort Rinella. The medieval city of Mdina has a little of everything, from flower festivals to a glimpse into the torture chambers of the past.

Sliema, St. Julian's and Paceville are the 'hip' areas on Malta, where the younger set go to see and be seen. They are major tourist locations, with great nightlife.
