Malta Holidays

Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre.

Wherever you go, the scenery and architecture provide a spectacular backdrop making your Malta holidays truly memorable. The colours are striking, honey-coloured stone against the deepest of Mediterranean blues.

Malta has been described as one big open-air museum. What makes it unique is that so much of the past is visible today. Delve into the island’s mysterious, retrace the footsteps of St. Paul or see where the Knights of St. John fought their most famous battles.

With near year-round sun, you can indulge in outdoor living at its best, making Malta Holidays a great experience.

In just a kilometre or two, you can try a new sport, laze on an island cruise and tour the most important historic sites, and still have time to join in the. That’s the real advantage of a stay here.

The island offers plenty of specialist holidays for those seeking to brush up their English, learn a new skill, discover history or get fit. If you’re interested in, there’s enough on offer to satisfy the seasoned enthusiast as well as the casual first-timer. Malta has wellness and spa facilities at the luxury hotels and club resorts. Sea and land lend themselves to activities from rock-climbing to gentle rambling.

And, if this were not enough, there are the other two islands, Gozo and which can be a pleasant change-of-scene during your stay on the mainland or alternative destinations in themselves. The choice is yours…

In recent history Malta Holidays here have always been regarded as an inexpensive destination for a your perfect holiday. The weather is sunny and hot for most of the year and the sea is clear and warm. Accommodation is good value; there’s an abundance of high-quality, reasonably priced restaurants and decent night life in resort areas. Added to these selling points is some dramatic coastal scenery and excellent opportunities for snorkelling, scuba diving and other water sports. Malta’s true highlights are not its beaches however, and this sun and sand image doesn’t do the country enough justice.

What makes Malta a unique destination is that so much of its intriguing past is visible today. From 5000 year old temples to immense fortifications built by the Knights of St John in the 16th century. A few days off the beaches will confirm that there is much to discover: the magnificent fortified capital of Valletta with its glorious and bustling Mediterranean street life; stone-built villages and towns with their idiosyncratic baroque churches and exuberant annual festas; the mysterious prehistoric temples and archaeological finds that pre-date Egypt’s pyramids; the elegant, medieval fortress town of Mdina; and if you want to get away from it all, the smaller and quieter island of Gozo with is quaint landscape of flat-topped hills and towering cliffs.
