Why Malta is the Perfect Holiday for Everyone!

Malta is for everyone!

This small Mediterranean archipelago proves that amazing things come in small packages! So many things to see and experience are packed into three islands that are just fantastic to explore. We think everyone should experience a holiday in Malta because it suits so many different types of holiday makers.

Quick facts:

  • 300 days of sunshine a year
  • 7,000 years of history
  • 3 Michelin star restaurants!
  • 3 islands to explore – Malta, Comino and Gozo!

Here’s who we think will love Malta!

Food lover in Malta

Foodies

Malta is a foodie paradise. The unique flavour blends of Maltese cuisine can be traced back to its long history and influences from many different civilisations that have occupied these islands. Seafood is a staple, with expert chefs serving lobster, tuna, swordfish, prawns and more fresh from the sea. Experience local delicacies like fenek, a delicious rabbit stew, and sweet treats like imqaret.

These local favourites are complimented by a burgeoning international dining scene. Malta has 3 Michelin star restaurants to testify to this offering modern Mediterranean flair and innovative takes on traditional cuisine. If you like wine, Malta is an amazing choice too – and since local wines are not produced in large enough quantities to export, you have to come here to experience them!

Malta history

History buffs

Malta has over 7000 years of history with many civilisations leaving their marks on its culture and people. So it’s just perfect for history lovers. Start with the capital of Valletta, Europe’s most concentrated historical city with 320 monuments from cathedrals to theatres packed into its storied streets. The city is one of Malta’s 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Don’t miss out on the others too. Visit the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum (book your tickets online at least a month in advance so you don’t miss out) and then head to the island of Gozo to see the Megalithic temples there.

Malta Family

Families

Malta is fast making its name as a top Mediterranean family holiday destination that could just be your new fave place to take the kids. It’s got an amazing blend of exciting activities and seaside relaxation with something for all ages. Escape to one of the many beaches or go for something more action packed like diving or the range of outdoor activities. Small children will love the activities like petting farms and museums, and teenagers won’t be bored with plenty to keep them happy too.

Beaches in Malta

Beach lovers

Malta is a beachside paradise with a range of beaches to choose from white sands popular with tourists and locals alike and quieter hideaways where you can escape the crowds and relax. Head to Gozo and see the stunningly picturesque Ramla Bay where sugary sands meet the sapphire-blue sea – the perfect place to relax. Mellieha Bay is Malta’s longest beach which makes it a popular go-to beach for all. We also love Ghajn Tuffieha Bay which along with Golden Bay and Gnejna Bay forms a chain of gorgeous seaside escapes set into the rugged coastline. Simply beautiful.

Adventure in Malta

Thrill-seekers

This small island nation is a major destination for watersports. Kayaking, windsurfing and so much more – if you’re seeking adventure on the blue seas you could not find a better place to do it. It’s one of the best diving destinations thanks to its natural coves and caves and its clear waters. Dive beneath the waves to discover a famous shipwreck and stunning caves. If you’d prefer to stay dry why not explore Malta’s rocky terrain on foot, on Segway or on horseback – the natural surrounds are truly captivating to explore.

LGBTQ holiday

LGBTQ

Malta has long been at the forefront of LGBTQ rights and now is known as a particular gay-friendly holiday destination. It mixes beachside relaxation and party atmosphere into an unforgettable holiday blend. Check out Paceville, the entertainment hub of Malta full of bars and clubs and restaurants. Then relax in Ramla Bay and soak up the history in Mdina. Visit during its fantastic Pride celebration to see the rainbow-hued side of the island in full colour!
