This tiny speck of land located just south of Sicily has been touched by every nation that has landed here over the past few thousand years. Romans, Phoenicians, Normans, and the Knights of the Order of St. John have all left their mark on this distinctive island nation. Its diverse character is reflected in its mixture of astonishing historical architecture and astounding natural wonders.
While many visit for the beaches and the 300 days of decent weather per year, there is so much more to Malta than simple sun-seeking. Malta is the largest of the three islands that comprise the archipelago, home to the capital, Valletta. Gozo is a mid-sized island and more tranquil, while the tiny Comino is famed for its Blue Lagoon. Maltese towns feature picturesque winding lanes, extraordinarily lavish churches, and world-renowned prehistoric sites. The coast features dramatic limestone cliffs and pure blue ocean. For the traveller determined to relax on the beach and also get their fix of history, Malta is a dream location.
Flights land at Malta International Airport (MLA), located just outside the village of Luqa. Airport express bus services X1, X2, X3, and X4 serve various locations on the island. There are also fast ferries from Catania in Sicily and Salerno in Italy to the island, and once you’re there, there’s a cheap and frequent ferry between Cirkewwa on Malta and Mgarr on Gozo. Given that the entire main island is just 16 miles wide, it’s easy to explore. There’s no rail service on any of the islands, but there’s an extensive bus system on Malta and Gozo; tickets can be purchased from the driver. Bikes can also be rented at numerous places throughout the island.
If you’re not a fan of heat and crowds, then the very busy summer months of July and August are probably best avoided. Malta is a small island, with tourism as its main focus, so this is the time that most of the serious sunseekers flock here. Spring is a better option if you’re looking for fewer crowds, as the temperatures are rising but the beaches and attractions are less busy. Plus there are many local festivals around this time. The Fireworks Festival in Valletta takes place in April, while many village Festas, celebrations dedicated to the local patron saint, start at the end of May. But autumn has its charms too. The heat of the summer sun means the ocean is warmer, and cooler days make it the perfect time to explore all of those historic sites.
If you plan to see only one historical Maltese site, then head to this remarkable structure in Valletta, built by the Order of St. John in 1572. Though imposing, it looks quite sedate on the outside. But inside is a different story. Ornate doesn’t really do justice to the high Baroque style with every surface seemingly gilded or painted. The museum attached to the building is equally illuminating.
Yes, all those slightly smug social media posts are accurate: The waters of the Blue Lagoon really are that blue. This natural wonder needs to be seen to be believed. Located on the tiny island of Comino, the lagoon’s white sands and crystal-clear waters are perfect for swimmers, snorkelers, or just plain old starers. But the whole island, which is car-free, is a great place to explore.
Located close to the town of Siġġiewi, this is the only wooded area in the entire archipelago. Once forests covered the whole region, but most trees were cut down to make ships back in the olden days. This small area was retained as a hunting ground by the Knights of St John and is a wonderful place to stroll and picnic, with blankets of wild flowers and natural springs pitted throughout.
