Malta, the 10th smallest country in the world, is a hidden gem in the Mediterranean, with a rich history and culture that is truly captivating. Known for its warm climate, crystal-clear waters and stunning landscapes, Malta is a popular destination for travellers looking for an unforgettable experience. Here are our top picks for things to see and do in Malta during a 3-day trip.

Explore the City of Valletta 

Valletta, Malta's capital, is a World Heritage site, and for good reason. The city is a living museum, brimming with fascinating history and stunning architecture. Visitors can explore the Baroque architecture, monuments, museums, and fountains, as well as charming cafes and wine bars. Some of the must-see attractions include the National War Museum, the church of Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Grandmasters Palace, and the Tritons fountains.

Take a Day Trip to Gozo 

Gozo, Malta's sister island, is a short boat ride away and is definitely worth a visit. The island is home to the historic town of Rabat, also known as Victoria, which offers a glimpse into Malta's rich history. Visitors can explore the old medieval houses, museums, graffiti, and traditional restaurants and bars. Visitors can also take a stroll through the busy city of Rabat, where they can enjoy local cuisine, wine, and shopping.

Go Diving 

Malta is a diver's paradise, with warm waters and an abundance of marine life. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced diver, Malta has something to offer. For experienced divers, the Heritage Malta Wreck Site dive is a must-see, with shipwrecks, statues, and airplanes providing an insight into Malta's past. For beginners, shore dives are a great option, where you can explore the depths of 10-15 metres and still see a few wrecks.

Visit the Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is a stunning natural swimming spot, located on the small island of Comino. The crystal-clear waters and white sandy beaches make this a must-see destination for anyone visiting Malta.

Explore the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum

This ancient underground structure is one of Malta's most important archaeological sites. It dates back to around 4000 BC and offers an insight into the island's prehistoric past.
As you can see, Malta is a small country that packs a big punch when it comes to things to see and do. From the historic city of Valletta to the natural beauty of the Blue Lagoon, there's something for everyone. Whether you're interested in history, culture, or outdoor activities, Malta offers a truly unforgettable experience. Why not consider a Malta 2023 holiday this year?
