Ancient temples and tanning in sunny Malta

Malta's islands occupy an important spot in the central Mediterranean, standing at the crossroads of Europe, North Africa and the Levant. Visitors have enjoyed the subtropical climate, the warmest water in Europe and a wealth of natural beauty for millennia.

Nearly every civilization in the Mediterranean has made little Malta a stopping point, from the ancient Greeks to the armies of WWII and everyone in between. The result is an English-speaking island packed to the brim with ancient monuments and a unique mix of cultures that made Malta the perfect set for blockbuster films such as Gladiator, Troy and Alexander.

Today Malta is popular with tourists rather than armies, as it offers something for everyone. Holidays to Malta pack a lot into a little package: beaches and watersports, outdoor activities, nightlife, culture and history.

Places to Visit

Valletta Flea Market

Every Sunday Valletta Flea market trades its wares with everything from local crafts to leather, ceramics, jewellery and clothes. it can get very busy at times so it's best to avoid the mid day sun and go as early as possible.

Gozo Island

Malta's little sister, Gozo is a stunning island just off the north west coast of Malta. enjoy the boat ride over then explore the Inland Sea, Fungus Rock and Azzur Window before spending an hour or two browsing the shops or enjoying a traditional island meal.


Sail over to the Italian island of Sicily with it's stunning architecture, fascinating history and imposing Mount Etna.

Explore ancient walled cities

Hit the beach and top up your tan at Mellieha Bay, one of Malta's largest sandy beaches. This is the perfect place to don your snorkel, skim the waves on a jet ski or bob along on a pedal boat in the protected waters of the bay. The friendly and relaxed St Paul's Bay has no beach of its own but is an ideal family resort situated just a bucket and spade's throw from several of Malta's great seashores.

After taking in Malta's natural wonders relive the past and explore its rich history. Wander the streets of the old capital Mdina, founded by ancient Phoenician traders and built up by Christian knights in the Middle Ages, before heading to the current capital of Valletta. Valletta is a UNESCO World Heritage site, a fortress city with a unique mixture of buildings from Baroque to ancient Greek and a wealth of churches, palaces, museums and gardens. If you're a fan of hit TV series Game of Thrones, you'll be excited to know that Valletta was used as the location for King's Landing, and it's possible to take a special guided tour of the sets. Make sure to indulge your inner Indiana Jones at the National Museum of Archaeology, then head back to the resorts of Sliema for an evening at one of the many bars and restaurants.

Move over Ibiza: Malta's here

Boasting huge festivals and vibrant nightlife the island over, Malta's huge music scene is really getting this tiny island noticed. For a young and lively scene make a beeline for Paceville, the party capital of Malta. Just a short stroll from the lively resort of St Julians, Paceville has a fun, friendly atmosphere and a range of trendy bars and clubs that give Europe's top party resorts a run for their money. Rabat is the place to go for big open-air clubs and it's here that legendary Ibiza club nights Creamfields and Ministry of Sound take place, attracting huge DJs including Tiesto and Calvin Harris to their decks.

Each year MTV's Isle of Malta takes place in Valletta; Europe's only large-scale free music festival. Massive acts take to the stage, such as: Lady Gaga, David Guetta, Jessie J and the Black Eyed Peas.

Whether you're interested in dancing all night, tanning all day or exploring ancient temples and underwater caves, head to Malta for a holiday you'll never forget.
