Use the drop-down menu below to explore Malta.
Holidays to Malta are perfect for discovering the wonderful sights and sounds of Maltese life. There are few places in the world which offer as much variety per square mile as Malta. This diminutive and sunny island nation, just fifteen miles by nine, located in the very middle of the Mediterranean, wears its many delights on its sleeve. An elegant and aristocratic capital city, carved from a creamy, golden limestone, sits proudly above the glorious grand harbour of Valletta.
Malta's bustling streetscape is populated with delightful baroque churches and is regularly invaded during the summer months by exuberant local festivals, or fiestas, known as festas.
The island's earliest archaeological sites and beautifully preserved megalithic temples are the oldest free-standing buildings in the world - pre-dating the Egyptian pyramids - whilst imposing medieval fortress towns have dominated the landscape since the times of The Knights of St John. Sandy beaches may be few and far between but the surrounding waters are renowned for their sparkling clarity and stunning shades of blue.
Both Malta and Gozo boast archaic archaeological sites famed for their embedment in Maltese mythology. The food too is an attraction of the island from homely traditional Mediterranean dishes to more modern dishes influenced by the neighbouring Sicilians.
You must try; hobza, a delicious sourdough bread, aljotta, a nourishing fish broth made with rice, tomato and garlic and pastizza, flaky pastry stuffed with ricotta or mushy peas. Timpana goes head to head with fenek in the vote for the islanders’ favourite dish. The former is a baked macaroni pie, stuffed with cheese, egg, minced beef, tomato, onions and garlic. The latter is rabbit, whether stewed, roasted, fried or baked in a pie. Traditional sweets include dates, almonds, hazelnuts, honey, treacle and light pastry.
