The Island of Malta region
Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso's Cave – The Maltese Islands are positively mythic. The narrow meandering streets of their towns and villages are crowded with Renaissance cathedrals and Baroque palaces. As the countryside is dotted with the oldest known human structures in the world, the Islands have rightly been described as an open-air museum.
The Maltese archipelago lies virtually at the centre of the Mediterranean, with Malta 93km south of Sicily and 288km north of Africa. The archipelago consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino with a total population of 400,000 inhabitants over an area of 316sq km and a coastline of 196.8km (not including 56.01 km for the island of Gozo).
Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre. Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural, characterised by fishing, tourism, crafts and agriculture while Comino is largely uninhabited.
With superbly sunny weather, expansive beaches, a thriving nightlife and 7,000 years of intriguing history, there is a great deal to see and do. With a little help from any guidebook, captivating places of interest are immediately identified – the world famous Hypogeum selected as a place of World Heritage by UNESCO, prehistoric temples and grand palaces are but a few.
The long relationship between the Islanders and the various nationalities that occupied Malta over the centuries has created a marriage of styles and traditions, giving the Islands a fascinating eclectic culture.
True to the melting pot of cultural influences, the national languages are English and Maltese.
The Sliema area
Sliema is Malta's top up-market tourist destination, which caters for all tastes and ages. Whether it's sea, shopping, restaurants, pubs or great nightlife, Sliema has it all! Sliema is also a few minutes by car to all Malta's major town's and just across the harbour from Malta's capital city, Valletta.
Malta has had such a rich history that the country is practically saturated with attractions and places of interest.
The capital city of Valletta host to regular plays and concerts, as well as scores of exhibitions and street events. The Museum of Archaeology in Valletta houses an exceptionally rich collection of prehistoric artefacts. The War Museum at Fort St. Elmo is home to a Sunday military parade in period costumes re-enactment and the capital also possesses the impressive Grand Master’s Palace and St. John’s Co-cathedral.
With 7,000 years of history, the sites to visit are endless – the Megalithic Temples (including Ggantija, the oldest freestanding temple in the world), the underground St Paul’s and St. Agatha’s catacombs, The Knights of St. John’s significant sites, such as Fort St Angelo and Fort Rinella (home to the world’s largest canon). WWII significant sites, such as the Mgarr war shelter, Mtarfa ex-British military buildings, The Armoury and the Maritime Museum in Vittoriosa are not to be missed.
Look out for the Alarme and In Guardia Historical re-enactments, as well as interactive walkthrough and multimedia attractions that offer an overview of Malta’s history in under an hour. They’re interesting and a great way to learn the significance of what visitors will later be looking at.
The Museum of Roman Antiquities (commonly referred to as “The Roman Villa”) and various catacombs are to be found in Rabat. In the fortified medieval city of Mdina, visitors will come across everything from Napoleonic troops to flower festivals. The Cathedral and its museum are not to be missed, as well as the torturous Mdina dungeons and the Mdina Experience. For a romantic stroll like no other, wander the lamp lit streets of Mdina at night. Don’t miss the renowned chocolate cake at Fontanella Tea rooms, situated right on the bastion with a spectacular view.
For those who love art, the possibilities are endless – visit the impressive artistic collection at the National Museum of Fine Arts, see the Caravaggio’s Beheading of St. John at St. John’s co-Cathedral and visit the restored al frescos at ‘Norman House’, Palazzo Falzon in Mdina. To view more contemporary work, walk around the exhibits at the St Johns Cavalier Art Centre.
For fanciful fun, highlights are the passionate carnival and open-air concerts. Not to be missed is the Nadur carnival in Gozo and the parade in Valletta. Children will enjoy activity and fun parks, which include the old film set of Popeye Village.
For those who love the water, scuba diving is an avid sport on the Islands. A harbour cruise, swimming at Blue Grotto in Comino and St Peters Pool in Marsascala, renting a jet-ski, chartering a yacht, visiting Mgarr Ix-Xini cove in Gozo and par kiting from one of the sandy beaches to get a birds eye view of Malta are all absolute water lover must-do’s.
The rural side of the Islands is fascinating, with charming villages & captivating folklore. With 365 spectacular churches, there are more than a few highlights - visit the Mosta church famous for its large dome (third largest dome in Europe). Visit the church of St. Nicholas in the village of Siggiewi.
Visit the three cities in Cottonera, have an evening walk on the Sliema or Bugibba promenade and visit the fortified Citadel in Gozo.
On Sunday morning go to the fishing village of Marsaxlokk market, the open-air market outside Valletta or the It-Tokk Victoria market in Gozo.
The Islands must be visited at festa time for an insight into local life with all its colour and passions.

As a group of 3 girls who were looking for somewhere a little more luxurious to stay without spending £200 a night on a 5* hotel, this apartment was everything we could have asked for and more! The housekeeper was lovely and so helpful, and the apartment was clean and well equipped with good air conditioning, a basic food pack to get us started, and a beautiful terrace overlooking the harbour where we sat and had dinner while watching the sun set and the lights come on in Valetta every night - it was absolutely stunning and some of my favourite memories of our trip were doing just that. And watching the sun rise again after coming home from a night out! The location was spot on - there was a well equipped supermarket a 5 minute walk away, as well as a host of other shops and restaurants and a few bars, and there's a bus stop just down the road to take you to Paceville, the clubbing area! Also, just outside on the waterfront there's several boats available for excursions to Comino (the blue lagoon is an absolute must! But don't make the same mistake we did - go on a cruise where you can stay on the boat and jump straight into the water because it's impossible to find a nice spot to sit by the water as it's so busy! Also, go on one that provides lunch because the ony food available on Comino are fast food stalls, unless you want to trek to the the other side of the island to the hotel.) Just across the road there's also a beach club belonging to the Fortina hotel (I think?) where you can pay a few euros to chill out at their bar and use their pool and deck chairs, a really nice idea to spend a relaxing afternoon without travelling far! As I said, the housekeeper was really helpful so if there's anything else we could've possibly needed during our stay, she'd only be a phone call away! 100% best holiday ever, and this apartment definitely contributed to that experience!
