The Island of Malta region
The warmth of the Mediterranean sun, the clarity of the Mediterranean sea and the welcoming smiles of the Maltese people have won the hearts of visitors for years, but this tiny island also offers a host of diverse attractions and activities for those seeking a short break from the winter blues.
From balmy beaches and trendy nightclubs, to magnificent ancient monuments and a stunning legacy of centuries' old art and culture, Malta has something for everyone to enjoy.
Life is good on the Mediterranean island of Malta: warm sunshine, starry nights and lots to do, see, taste, feel and remember. Whether you're just visiting for a few days or spending a long lazy month on the island, you'll find Malta is alive with people, parties and events whatever the season. From summer jazz festivals and lunchtime concerts to thrilling theatre, music and arts events that pack the island's cultural calendar all year round.
Malta's strategic position midway between Europe and Africa made it a key possession for the many different conquering nations that ruled it throughout its 7000 years of history: from Neolithic man to the Ancient Romans, the Byzantines, the Moors, the Normans, the Knights of St John, the French and the British, all of whom have left a wealth of architectural and cultural treasures.
From the Baroque city of Valletta, a churches, galleries, shops, open air markets and boasting the remarkable St John's Co-Cathedral, home to Caravaggio's masterpiece the Beheading of St John, to the old capital, Mdina, the so-called 'Silent City, that quietly evokes a bygone era with its elegant stone palaces and hushed cobbled streets, to the St Paul's Catacombs in Rabat, Ggantija Neolithic Temples in Gozo, the World War II shelters and the Forts of St Elmo and St Angelo. In summer, get ready to enjoy firework fuelled village feasts in honour of village saints.
For those seeking adventure and an adrenaline rush, an early morning dive in the crystal clear waters of the Med checking out old war ships might be the thing to set your pulse racing, or test your endurance rock climbing high above the deep blue sea on the majestic Dingli Cliffs or head to the airport and enjoy the view from above with a skydiving jump. Wind down afterwards with a leisurely round of golf and afternoon tea on the lawns. The stunning historical settings of Valletta, Mdina or St Julians make the perfect backdrop to relaxation, sightseeing, concerts or sports.
Evenings are fun filled and full of activity: start with a typical Mediterranean fish dinner under the stars and continue with a buzzing night in one of Malta's many sophisticated nightlife venues. There's lots of choice too... pick from one of the hundreds of restaurants and cafes serving a wide range of local and international cuisine, and enjoy the island's vibrant nightlife, with its myriad pubs, wine bars, jazz clubs, discos, nightclubs and casinos offering entertainment for all ages.
St. George's Bay lies between St. Julians Bay and Malta's nightlife capital Paceville, within walking distance to either of them, but in a quieter niche with extended sea and bay views of this most popular place. Picturesque St. Julians, still used by fishermen, is lined with bougainvillea-clad cafes and restaurants; Paceville offers a vibrant nightlife to suite all tastes from nightclubs to quieter piano bars, together with some great bars and even greater eating places. A mix between a cosmopolitan town and a fishing village, St. Georges is an ideal place for fun and relaxation, and at the same time, a centre-point for easy commuting and touring of the island. A 16-cinema complex is only metres up the road, as is the tenpin bowling centre, together with shopping and leisure centres that are unique to this island. St. Georges offers all kinds of watersports and scuba-diving. A culmination of dazzling lights and dimly-lit streets in a safe environment for families and friends alike.
The coastline from here to neighbouring St Julian's all the way to Sliema constitutes Malta's main coastal resort. The promenade, which runs for several kilometres from Gzira just south of Sliema to St Julian's, is ideal for walking, jogging or just relaxation. There are plenty of seats along the promenade, which is also dotted with little bistros, restaurants, cafes, ice-cream parlours and the like. On summer evenings the seafront becomes a sociable meeting place for locals and tourists alike. The coastline has two tower fortifications: a watch tower built in the 17th century; the other was built by the British in the 1880's.

“Comfortable and convenient stay for our dive trip”
My husband and I chose to stay here because we were spending a week in Malta to dive and we wanted a comfortable place to come home to and cook at. This apartment went above and beyond those needs! To start, we were picked up at the airport by the owners' son and driven to the apartment, where he showed us around before leaving. We were greeted with some great Maltese snacks and wine as well as tea, bread, and a couple bottles of water and milk. (We were told that the water in Malta was not great to drink from tap because of all of the minerals in it.) At this point I should mention that while we had all of these great things to greet us, you must bring the following yourself: toilet paper (there is none there when you get there, so travel with a roll), hand soap, and paper towels. All of this is very easy to buy nearby though! The apartment was very comfortable and spacious for my husband and I. The wifi is free and very fast and we had tons of satellite tv stations to choose from. There's plenty of cookware and a grill to use out back in the private courtyard if you wish. The location is STEPS away from Paceville nightlife. Not really our scene, but we loved sitting at one of the bars and people-watching. Even though you are so close to nightclubs, bars, and strip clubs, the apartment is still pristinely quiet at night. Another location plus is that your front door opens to overlook St. George's bay, and it's a 3 minute walk to the beach and the hop on hop off bus stop. Conveniently for us, the dive company that we picked (Starfish) happened to be across the bay from the apartment, an easy 5 minute walk. There's a second dive shop (Cresta) in this area as well. Paul and Josanne were gracious hosts. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of. When we had a question about the water heating system, Josanne came over that day to help us out. On our last day, our flight was not until late afternoon, so Paul and Josanne brought us to their house and let us sit by the pool for the afternoon. We were also able to use a small apartment to shower and change before heading to the airport. The ride to the airport is not included in your rental cost but was only 20 euro, which is equivalent to, if not less than, cab fare. I cannot imagine a better equipped, more convenient, more hospitable stay than at the Sands!
It is always our pleasure to make sure that our guests enjoy their holiday to the fullest; if we can add that little bit of extra personal touch to help make this a truly memorable experience on the island, it will always come from the heart. A big thank you to this lovely young couple for having stayed with us and also for posting their experience with us on this website. We also have to apologize for not having provided the apartment with the mentioned toiletries and assure you this was an oversight on our part as it is standard procedure and practice to have our guests greeted in the best way possible on arrival. Malta is infact a great place to see and if you love diving, then you can say that you couldn't have chosen better. It would be a real treat to have you bringing friends along next time around because notwithstanding its size, Malta is a place which offers a lot and has to be visited again (even if that's a biased opinion, but still shared by most). Once again a big thank you to our guests, Hugs Josanne
“Best Apartment we have ever stayed in!”
My Girlfriend and I have just returned from a fantastic Ten day stay in Paul and Josanne's apartment. Firstly, I would like to say how hospitable, polite and friendly our hosts were. The communication, from our first enquiring E-mail, right through to us leaving the apartment, was excellent, with all E-mails and any other queries being answered promptly. Now for the apartment. It was an ultra modern apartment, with everything you need or expect. The attention to detail is far beyond what you would expect from an apartment that is being let. The living room area being a personal highlight of mine with the black leather couches and single recliners and best of all the 46" tv with surround sound system. The location is indeed, right slap bang in the middle of Malta's party central town of Paceville (pronounced "Patchy-ville), but like another review has said, once your in the apartment you can't hear anything. It is extremely lively on a weekend in the locality, but the youngsters are totally harmless and only interested in having a good time and then throwing up! Finally, my girlfriend and i are both in our MId-Thirties, and if we were to stay in Malta again we wouldn't hesitate in returning to this Superb apartment! Thank you once again Paul and Josanne for your help in a truly lovely stay in Malta.
