The Island of Malta region

Malta, famous for its good weather, its seas and its heritage, offers a variety of experiences to its visitor. Below is a peak into the possibilities whilst on holiday in Malta. Please don’t hesitate to email me for additional information or suggestions.

The Beautiful Seas

Malta has been coined the land the land of sun and sea and this is due to some of the cleanest sea anywhere and idyllic beaches which remain a main draw for tourists. There are the obvious popular sandy beaches as well as the rugged but no less beautiful rocky coasts. Here is a mention of a few of my personal favourites, but a Google search will provide many others.

Golden Bay is a beautiful sandy beach set within a cliff face in North West Malta and is the most popular sandy beach in Malta together in a chain of beaches with Ghajn Tuffieha and Gnejna. Golden Bay is located along unspoiled and undeveloped countryside and the sand at Golden Bay is light cream colour with fine clean corns. The blue sea and the cliffs surrounding the bay provide excellent snorkelling. Golden Bay has a large beach, beautiful waters and facilities, making it the second popular beach in Malta after Mellieha Bay.

The Blue Lagoon is located in Comino and is like a picture taken out of a postcard with its light blue crystal clear waters and white sandy sea bottom. The uniquely beautiful Blue Lagoon has two small sandy beaches on each sides of the bay, the rest of the bay is surrounded by rock to sunbathe on and jump into the water from. The Blue Lagoon in Malta is prized for its shallow waters and is a very popular place with tourists and locals alike. Due to the lagoon’s incredible waters, colourful fish and even several caves to explore, snorkelling is the obvious choice here.

Ghajn Tuffieha Bay, sometimes called Riviera, is a beautiful and special sandy beach with it's clay slopes and cliffs located in the North West part of Malta. Ghajn Tuffieha is the second sandy beach in a chain of beaches together with Golden Bay and Gnejna Bay, and is only accessible via a steep flight of 200 stairs from the car park, which can be demanding to climb during the summer months. Ghajn Tuffieha is smaller, more unspoiled than Golden Bay, which makes the beach extra popular with locals and tourist visiting Malta, who want to enjoy the sun and the sea in a peaceful, relaxing environment.

St Paul’s Bay is one of largest seaside resorts in Malta that started out as a small fishing village. The entire coastline around St. Paul’s Bay boasts numerous rocky beaches with wonderful open sea views ideal for bathing, and is almost entirely open to the public. From St Paul’s Bay, swimmers also have fantastic panoramic views over St Paul’s Island where, according to legend, the ship carrying the Apostle is said to have been wrecked. The apartment terrace benefits from such a view. The inner harbour areas including Qawra Point (referred to as Ta Fra Ben) is particularly popular with both locals and tourists. A long and easy walk is available on the coastline promenade from St Paul’s Bay all the way to Qawra, with its tower and views over Salina Bay.

The beautiful seas do not only provide a relaxing holiday by the sea or a romantic one characterised by panoramic sunsets. The blue waters offer a number of activities to compliment any holiday, these include:

Yacht chartering and boat hire which are a great way to explore the rocky Maltese coastline with its hidden caves and excluded coves.

Diving and snorkelling are popular pastimes on the Maltese islands with plenty of marine life and shipwrecks to discover.

Jet skis, canoes and paddle boats can be rented on some beaches. For the more adventurous, wind-surfing, water-skiing, paragliding, knee boarding and wake boarding are also available, with many places offering lessons for beginners.

The Country side

The variety offered by Malta and Gozo’s landscape makes rambling along its gentle hillsides, dramatic cliffs, isolated seaside inlets and secluded pathways an enjoyable and rich experience. You will come across surprises from the island’s intricate history such as coastal towers and wayside chapels. Spring and early autumn showcase Malta’s vast indigenous wild fauna along typical rubble walls. The topography quickly changes to areas of rugged garigue and sweeping coastal views.

Walkers can enjoy a gentle stroll or more strenuous hikes occupying a whole day...but this is certainly the way to visit the most exhilarating and spectacular landscapes on the three islands. A good pair of walking shoes, plenty of water, a good hat and protective sun cream are always highly recommended.

One can opt for a walk in Bahrija, which comprises of countryside views of fertile valleys surrounded by
hills. A stroll along coastal cliffs offers stunning views and a glimpse of the islet of Filfla. A walk by the coastline leading to Marfa is another popular walk leading to the White tower, and a number of fortified structures dating back from the times of the Knights of St John, right up to World War II. Other popular walks include Girgenti, Dwejra Lines, and many others.

Nightlife

Paceville is the centre of Malta’s vibrant nightlife scene. All sorts of clubs and disco bars pumping out the latest hits to the delight of revellers seeking out that perfect hedonistic night. However, Malta today also offers much more refined entertainment venues such as a top notch casino in Qawra or St Julians or chill-out while sipping away in an atmospheric wine/cocktail bar.

Cuisine

The Maltese are probably most proud of their cuisine…even more than their history if that’s at all possible! Any local will have you try their famous 'pastizzi' and traditional 'hobz biz-zejt'. No visit to the island would otherwise be complete. Other traditional dishes include, snails, rabbit, maltese sausage, 'imqaret' and 'bigilla'. No mention of Malta would be complete without a reference to the island's soft drink, Kinnie. It was launched in 1952 in Malta and has a distinctive bitter sweet orange taste. Cisk Lager is produced in Malta by the same company and is the leading lager in the area. It has a very clean and refreshing taste, great for the warm climate in Malta.

Malta’s Heritage

The list of Malta’s heritage sites is dominated by the Islands’ prehistoric megalithic temples and underground chambers. They are both fascinating and perplexing for there are no definite answers to how and why they were built or for what they were used.

What is certain, is that several thousand years before the arrival of the Phoenicians, the Islands were the home to a remarkable culture. These people acquired the skills, and had the strength of spiritual devotion, to mobilise men and resources to build megalithic structures and hew out living rock into burial chambers. This culture was to vanish from the Islands whether through famine, fire, natural disaster or routed by invasion no one knows.

Such is the fascination with Malta’s prehistory that several finds have entered the nation’s psyche. Artefacts such as ‘The Sleeping Lady’, a clay figurine of exquisite craftsmanship found at the Hypogeum and now on display at the National Museum of Archaeology; and the temple altar slabs with their distinctive spirals, are constant themes of artists working on the Islands today. Malta’s temples and the Hypogeum are designated UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The Islands are also home to important sites from the Bronze Age and Phoenician and Roman periods. At Skorba, there is evidence of settlement earlier than the temple-building period, while St Paul’s Catacombs represent the earliest archaeological evidence of Christianity in Malta. The Domvs Romana has mosaics which rank among the finest and oldest compositions in the western Mediterranean, and are on a par with those of Pompeii and Sicily. San Pawl Milqi is the site of a large Roman agricultural villa which provides evidence of the Islands’ thriving olive oil trade in classical times.

Archaeology aside, we also boast sites from later years which are none the less fascinating. The Inquisitors’ Palace is a rare glimpse into the work of this Papal official. Its fine audience chambers are as magnificent as its prisons are austere. The Old Prison in Gozo bears witness to the lives of ordinary people in the graffiti of ships and handprints etched on its walls.

Malta’s strategic location in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea resulted in Malta being involved in WWII. Related to this, one must visit the Siege Bell Monument in Valletta which commemorates victims of 1942’s Second Great Siege, the Unexploded Bomb, Mosta Dome, in the dome is a replica of the bomb that pierced the roof during mass, but miraculously failed to explode. the War Memorial, Floriana inscribed with the names of 2,297 British Commonwealth servicemen. , the George Cross Medal, National War Museum awarded to the Maltese people for their heroism in 1942, the Lascaris War Rooms, Valletta whereby the defence of Malta and the invasion of Sicily were planned in these rooms, Malta At War Museum, Vittoriosa. Should one have more time, plenty others are scattered around the island.

A visit to Mdina is also a must. This medieval city, known as the Silent city leaves its visitors in awe. Everyone will have the same experience after visiting the St Pauls Cathedral, Palazzo Falzon, Natural History Museum, Mdina Dungeons, and topped off by a slice of famous chocolate cake at a famous tea garden with spectacular views.

“Perfect and quiet location to explore Malta”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2016

We have been met by the owner of apartment at the airport upon our late evening arrival, who also kindly arranged for additional taxi to fit our large family (as well as on the day of departure). The apartment was large, well equipped and functional. We had all we need for one week of vacation (including socket adapters for appliances), and even some food on arrival! The apartment is located in a quiet area, with a nice view to St. Paul Bay from the balcony/terrace, and very close to the bus stop. While the grocery shops were not so close to the apartment, there were some places to eat nearby. The house is located just few meters from the sea!
