Get yourself to Malta for a good time!

It is also the place where the Knights of St. John defended their Christianity. In Malta, the sun shines year-round, the water is clear blue and there is always something to do, whether its rock climbing, scuba diving or taking in the magnificent historic architecture. There are caves to explore. The annual jazz festival happens every July.

Malta is filled with beautiful resort hotels. The Palace is a five-star boutique hotel with 155 rooms and suites. The rooms are decorated in a modern style. The suites have flat screen television and satellite channels, as well as individual terraces. The Tabloid Restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine in a modern setting. It is open for a daily buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Palace Spa, located on the top floor, has an indoor pool, outdoor pool, and a fitness room. For great pampering, there is a variety of indulgent skin care products.

The least expensive time to visit Malta is during the off-season months of November through March. That makes the upcoming Christmas holiday the perfect time to visit the island nation. Local churches put on a pageant with children dressing up as Joseph, Mary and the shepherds. The pageant starts at 11:00 p.m. and is followed by midnight mass. Father Christmas delivers his presents early on Christmas night. A large annual party is prepared at the Residential Home for the Disabled in Siggiewi. There are plays and singing, and everyone participates, including the nuns. Traditional Christmas dishes consist of a goose or a turkey with Christmas puddings.

Now may be the perfect time to visit the striking island nation of Malta.
