The Island of Malta region
Malta – offers the perfect holiday destination for all kinds of people, whether a Family Holiday, Romantic Getaway a leisure or business trip. Weather is some of the best in terms of sunshine you will find in the Mediterranean in given its most southerly geographical position. In brief summery Malta offers excitement in Water Sports, Scuba Diving, Exotic Locations, Historical Prevalence, Superb Beaches, excellent food and lots of varied Entertainment to please all kinds of taste.
Malta – the very name conjures up thoughts of the George Cross and enough historical sights to keep you busy for a month, however there’s so much more to this little beauty than a fascinating past. These days you’re just as likely to hear about its film locations and nightlife as you are its history and culture. Hollywood epics such as Troy, Gladiator and Alexander were all filmed on the island’s sunny shores. And world famous artist such as Sting, Brian Adams, Tom Jones have graced Malta. But though Malta’s image is changing fast, its breathtaking beauty and English speaking locals remains one of the key ingredients that draws people back year after year. Wherever you go, the island’s eye-popping scenery provides a sigh-inducing backdrop. And as for all that history, with so much of the past still visible today, there’s no wonder it’s known as an open-air museum.
Travel back in time to discover Malta’s mysterious prehistory. Retrace the footsteps of St Paul. Or see where the Knights of St John defended Christendom. But Malta is no regular museum. Here life is lived to the full, so be prepared to get stuck into the Mediterranean way of life. Throw yourself into carnivals and village festa’s make the most of the island’s packed calendar of events. If you’re looking for a destination that offers more than just a suntan, Malta will definitely deliver beyond your expectations!
