The Mediterranean nation with special appeal to UK visitors…
With other 7000 years of history, the Maltese islands of Malta, Gozo and little Comino are steeped in culture and heritage. They’re also surrounded by the bluest sea and sit under cloudless azure skies for much of the year, whilst the honey-coloured landscape is as warm as the welcome extended by the islanders.
Everywhere you go on the main island, unique historic sights await. Temples, palaces, cathedrals, and forts provide a living history you can almost touch. Sound plays an important part in the life of the islands. The mix of fireworks and music transforms a summer night into a special memory.
To eat is to taste the islands multicultural heritage. The history of the Maltese islands reads like a ‘who’s who’ of military and economic powers holding sway over the Mediterranean through the ages including the Romans, Arabs, Turks, knights of St John, French British and even the Normans.
After dinner, night clubs, wine bars and casino bars beckon with their own brand of excitement. And the best of all: to experience all this, Malta is a short flight away.
Gozo is the sister island of Malta. Situated a short 20-minuet ferry ride away it is much smaller and quieter than Malta and offers visitors a very different experience from its more party-minded neighbour (there’s only one club on the whole island!). It is far more a ‘local’ experience filled with calming serenity, hidden beaches and vast areas of unspoilt nature.
