About Malta

The Island of Malta is an archipelago in the warm Mediterranean waters, some 93 km south of Sicily. Only the three largest islands Malta, Gozo (Għawdex), and Comino (Kemmuna) are inhabited. Numerous bays along the indented coastline of the islands provide good harbours while the landscape is characterized by low hills with terraced fields.

Malta is not just sun and beaches: historical Malta offers unique megalithic temples, fortified cities and other unique monuments. Valletta, the capital of Malta, has been listed as a UNESCO world heritage site due to the various monumental buildings. It is a baroque city which has often been described as an open-air museum due to the amount of historic buildings it packs. As a consequence of the strong historic and cultural links to Britain, Malta is bilingual, so the great majority of the Maltese can communicate in English.

If you plan your visit for special times like summer Festa season, Easter and carnival, be assured you won’t be stuck for what to do – simply join the crowd for some incredible fun.
