Overview

A perfect combination of golden, sandy beaches and world heritage sites dating back to prehistoric times, Malta is a hidden gem located on the Mediterranean Sea, near the southernmost tip of Italy.

 

Malta holidays are less crowded than the popular beach resorts of the Canary Islands and the Balearics. However, this small island is just as picturesque and sunny as any other popular beach destination in the Mediterranean. Malta holidays have a lot to shout about, particularly its centuries-old history, which has seen the successive reigns of the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Byzantines and the British. The island is also known for some of the most ancient UNESCO world heritage sites, such as the Neolithic caves of Hal-Salflieni Hypogeum, the baroque buildings of the capital city of Valetta and the Megalithic ruins of the Ġgantija temples - making it a hot spot for history and culture buffs. But don’t worry if history's not your cup of tea, there's much more to keep you entertained during your holidays in Malta. The Blue Flag beaches of St. George’s Bay, Golden Bay and Ghajn Tuffieha give you the chance to enjoy nature at its glorious best, or if you're travelling with kids, Popeye Village should be your first stop.

 

When it comes to accommodation, the area around Valetta has some of the best-rated hotels in the Mediterranean. With warm sunshine, pristine beaches and monuments of great archaeological importance, your Malta holidays are going to be an experience worth remembering.

Places to go and things to do in Malta

Mesmerising Mellieha

Mesmerising Mellieha

Visit Mellieha and you will be spoilt for things to see and do.

The golden sands of Mellieha Bay (also known as Ghadira Bay) and its clear, shallow waters are a sure hit with sunbathers, snorkelers and watersports enthusiasts. Rocky outcrops divide the beach into three stretches, ranging from lively to quiet, so guests can take their pick.

Drive 15-minutes to The Mediterraneo Marine Park in historic Naxxar for a swim with bottle-nosed dolphins. Located on the coastal road, kids can enjoy playful sea-lions, turtles, pirouetting macaws and cockatoos. Check out slithery snakes and lizards from a safe distance as they roam their state-of-art reptile habitat. Malta’s only marine park also has a mini-lab play area for kids and a cafeteria.

Set aside an afternoon to visit the Blue Lagoon in Comino Island, its Mediterranean waters reflecting the blue sky, with pure white sand visible beneath. Swim, sunbathe, snorkel or simply laze on the beach.

Loved Popeye the Sailor Man as a kid? Here’s a chance to pay a visit to Popeye Village and get up close to the comic book character and friends Olive Oyl, Bluto, Swee’Pea and Wimpy! The former film set of the 1980's hit Popeye can be found at Sweethaven village near Mellieha’s Anchor Bay.

Stunning Sliema

Slimena is another one of our favourite spots where there is so much to see and do.

Around the Sliema area, watersports are in abundance, and you’ll often see water skiers and jet-skiers whizzing around the Med. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, and need a bit of an adrenaline injection, why not sign up for one of these thrilling activities yourself? There’s no time like the present!

Like the majority of the Maltese coastline, the beaches are rocky but lidos offer safe swimming around Sliema and flat jetties are great for sunbathing. Ancient pools also dot the coastline near Sliema, and with ladders dangling down into the azure waters they are the perfect place for a quick dip.

Sliema is heaving with nightlife spots, from cosy pubs to lively bars. Most of these are centred on Triq ix-Xatt, near the harbour, where you’re guaranteed to find an establishment that has the vibes you’re looking for. Whether it’s wine, cocktails or just a good draught beer, there’s a refreshing drink waiting!

Family Holidays

Malta family holidays are growing in popularity thanks to the many attractions packed into this tiny island.

Situated on the northernmost tip of St. Paul's Bay is Qawra Point, a rocky Blue Flag beach with breathtaking views and an abundance of watersports. A lot of the coastline in Malta is rocky with lovely lidos where you can enjoy a dip. The resorts have a handful of manmade beaches and Golden Bay is a short drive away from Qawra. In the resorts, try your hand at jet-skiing, windsurfing and waterskiing, or head to the depths and try one of the scuba diving excursions on offer. Dry off on a sun lounger before rounding up the day at the beach bars and restaurants.

Take the coolest ride around the sights of Gozo on a Segway. Easy to learn and fun to drive, you can glide around the waterfront without getting tired feet. Teenagers will have a ball and the whole family can enjoy tours around the beach promenades and town. Local guides can segway with you on a tour of all the best bits.

Close to Spinola Bay is Cat Village - which is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin. The Cat Village is a little outdoor community of felines located in a narrow street! Set up around 40 years ago by a local lady, the resident stray cats are treated to their own little safe area, complete with houses, scratch posts, and even teddy bears. Cats are neutered, cared for and fed on a daily basis, making them affectionate creatures that love all the attention they can get their paws on! As a result, cat lovers will be in their element when they visit, with many of the cats happily accepting cuddles, scratches and any scraps of food.

Couples Holidays

Grab your partner in crime and explore this gem of an island.

Many of the beaches in St Julians are quite rocky, but the Blue Flag patch at St George’s Bay is one of the most picturesque in all of Malta. There’s no need to go out of your way to enjoy this small sandy bay, though - it’s in amongst the hustle and bustle of the main town, sitting on the doorstep of many hotels, casinos and an amusement park. During the peak of summer it can get busy, though, so be sure to get there early to reserve your spot! Tourists and locals alike flock to the bay for sunbathing, swimming and sunset watching.

Malta’s National Aquarium can be found in St. Paul’s Bay, and is a popular tourist attraction, particularly for families hoping to keep the kids boredom-free. As well as the various tanks filled with species of fish and marine life, there’s a café on site too, where you can enjoy lunch or a refreshing cold drink.

The largest resort on the island, Bugibba knows how to have a good time. With St. Paul's Bay and Qawra close by there is nightlife and a great choice of bars and restaurants to suit every taste. Hit the main square of Bugibba for Irish pubs, karaoke bars and club lounges. Boasting great sea views, bustling restaurants and bars, the waterfront is top pick for delicious dinners. Further afield, Paceville in St Julians is a 20-minute cab ride from St Paul's Bay and has even more clubs to enjoy. Whether you want to hit the bars or casinos, you'll find plenty to keep you occupied here until the early hours of the morning.
