Hang Loose on your Malta Holiday
This sun-drenched island nation in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea boasts of year-round warm weather, a rich history, and a bustling nightlife -- the perfect ingredients for your Malta holiday.
The warm sun and soothing ocean breeze converge on Malta's beaches, guaranteeing a relaxing stay. Take the kids to the Mellieha (Ghadira) Bay, the largest and most popular of the Maltese beaches. The clear, shallow waters and wide range of activities make it ideal for family beach fun. Small cafes and snack bars dot the long stretch of sand.
You will enjoy Golden Bay and Ghajn Tuffieha Bay, two breathtaking beaches perched next to each other atop a cliff. Climb the lookout tower above the precipice and take in the amazing view. Or discover hidden natural treasures in the little inlets and coves.
Explore Malta’s World Heritage Sites, and learn about the island’s history and culture. Visit the capital of the Maltese Islands, the fortress city of Valetta, which was built by the Order of St. John, a Christian organization founded in the 11th century to care for the poor and the sick. Stroll through the city and you’ll find well-preserved Baroque structures, and St. John’s Co-Cathedral, built by the Knights of Malta. Don’t miss the remarkable view of Malta’s Grand Harbour, one of the highlights of your city tour.
Malta’s two other heritage sites you must visit are the Megalithic temples, which are the oldest free-standing stone structures in the world, and the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, the only prehistoric underground temple in the world.
Switch to a higher gear for the night and revel in the island’s active nightlife. Hit the 7 Rooms bar on Dragonara Road for a round of drinks and games at the casino. Other party places in Malta include the Empire Bar, the Old Keg Pub, and Hugo’s Lounge Bar.
