Malta is synonymous with St George’s Cross and its fascinating history and culture. Malta’s wonderful shoreline was used in Hollywood films, such as Troy, Gladiator and Alexander. Malta’s image is changing fast as more people begin to enjoy the new nightlife. Other entertainment includes their carnivals and numerous other events.
However, its breathtaking beauty remains one of the key things that draws people back year after year. Its 7000 year history is still visible today and many refer to Malta as an open air museum. In Malta, you can retrace the steps of St. Paul, or see where the knights of St. John defended Christendom.
Malta is a sunny all year round destination for holiday makers from the UK. Its attraction is its wonderful climate, picturesque fishing villages and of course for its ever present British connection. In Malta, you can enjoy the wealth of activities it has to offer, including golf, tennis, cycling, paragliding and hiking. Malta is full of fascinating traditions, cultures, architecture and cuisine.
Malta is a small island stretching 30km from one end to the other. Most of the tourist areas are found in the North of the country. St. Paul’s Bay is the most popular destination for holidaymakers with one area around the original fishing village now heavily developed, and the resorts of Bugibba and Oawra offering a huge amount of accommodation and tourist facilities.
The coastline is mainly rocky but there are plenty of opportunities for sunbathing, swimming and water sports in Malta. Resorts such as Mellieha and Golden Bay offer popular sandy beaches. The main resorts on the East Coast are Sliema and St. Julian’s, which are linked by a seafront promenade. In Sliema, you’ll find chic waterfront cafes and bars, whereas St. Julian’s is the place to go by night for its best nightlife in Malta!
But whether it is history, beaches, architecture, cuisine or nightlife, Malta has it all to offer.
