The Island of Malta region
It has been said that the Maltese islands are the 'open air museum of the Mediterranean', offering 7,000 years or more of history to explore with numerous cultural, historical and megalithic sites unique in the world. The islands boast prehistoric ruins older than Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Egypt, and are steeped in the legacy of the medieval order of the Knights of St John, who used the island as their stronghold for defending Christendom.
The main island of Malta, covering just 95 square miles (246 sq km), is also a popular holiday destination because of its secluded bays and sandy beaches, washed by unpolluted clear blue waters. Set against the backdrop of the island's scenery and its honey-coloured stone buildings, Malta is alluring and fascinating
Getting to Malta
Malta’s national airline is Air Malta. Other airlines serving Malta include Ryanair, Easyjet, Aeroflot, Alitalia, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, Emirates, Lufthansa. Charter flights are also offered from many European destinations. Most of Europe is within 3 hours flying time, northernmost countries up to 4 hours.
Visitors do not need to take any special health precautions. Tap water is also perfectly safe, although bottled water is cheap and better tasting. All locally produced dairy products are safe for consumption. Milk is pasteurised and available daily in cartons.
Chemists are found throughout the Islands and are open during normal shopping hours, generally 9-12 and 4-7pm Mon-Fri and 9-12 Saturdays. All common medications manufactured by the major international brands are commonly available, or their equivalent.
In case one needs to see a doctor, the standard of health care in Malta is very high, both in the public and private sector.
Malta and Gozo is possibly one of the cheapest places to hire a car, especially in the low season. Unless you are a regular visitor or do not expect to do much sightseeing, and ideally are also staying in a central location, you might find that buses are somewhat limiting.
Buses are quite cheap, but rather slow, and connections generally mean changing buses at Valletta to go pretty much anywhere, although some direct services do exist. The peripheries, if served by buses at all, could have an hourly service which means plenty of waiting time. If you plan on getting around a lot, buses should only be considered a viable option if you are staying in Valletta, the Sliema/St Julians area, and the St Paul’s Bay area – localities which are well served and have plenty of tourist facilities to hand, thus unnecessary travelling is avoided.
While on holiday in Malta, there are various things to see and do, as well as beautiful island beaches to enjoy. Visit St John's Co-Cathedral to see Caravaggio's painting and the inlaid tombstones covering the Cathedral floor. Still in Valletta, the Malta Experience illustrates the history of Malta at the Mediterranean Conference Centre. The Three Cities are home to architectural displays of the island's maritime history, while Hagar Qim has a prehistoric temple complex with the oldest human structures in the world. Dive into the 'blue hole' at Dwejra's secluded pebbled bathing pool, and visit Marsalforn for great restaurants and bars. Malta offers visitors warm summers and mild winters
The climate of Malta is Mediterranean with typical hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Fog is common between November and March, and most of the limited annual rainfall occurs between October and April. During spring and autumn a hot wind, called the Xlokk, sometimes blows
St Julians Initially a fishing village, later turned to a summer residence for wealthy locals and now developed into one of the Island's mostly fetched resorts for night life and entertainment, especially for the youngsters and the middle aged. Within walking distance to Paceville, this village still retains some of it's old dwellings and boat houses.
The small bay still shelters numerous coloured Maltese boats that are berthed here all year long. St Julians derives it's name from the Patron Saint of hunters.St Julians is a village for all ages and walks of life. The young at heart will enjoy nearby Paceville - this locality offers much to tourists looking for nightlife entertainment, including discos, bars , Casino , restaurants and other entertainment.
Sliema and St Julians resort are Malta's main coastal resort towns and a heartland for shopping, entertainment and café life. They are also key commercial and residential areas with some of Malta's newest hotels and apartments. Sliema, once a fishing town, began to develop in the early 20th century as small resort for wealthier Valletta residents. Their elegant villas and town houses line the quieter back streets.
The sea front from Gzira to St Julian's, which offers first stunning views across to Valletta and then open horizons, is a popular meeting place and ideal for walkers and joggers. St Julian's and Paceville are Malta's main nightlife areas. Picturesque St Julian's Bay, still used by fishermen, is lined with bougainvillea-clad cafés and restaurants. Paceville offers a vibrant nightlife to suit all tastes. Choose from the latest in club DJ music to quieter piano bars, an elegant casino and superb restaurants. Inland from these coastal resorts lie some of Malta's most urban yet sought-after residential areas.
