Malta is a small island nation found in the Mediterranean Sea. Tourists visit the island for a variety of reasons and sights on the island will be interesting for a wide range of travelers.

Language and money
If Malta has two languages then English will be the second language. Due to decades of British rule, Malta gained independence in 1964, but this has left many Maltese people with a strong knowledge of the English language. For English speaking tourists, it will probably be easy to communicate, which can be a blessing while on holiday. The Maltese currency is EURO.
Sports and recreational activities
For a range of sports, including hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, para gliding, wind surfing and yachting, Malta is an excellent location. There is plenty to entertain at any time of the year. There are low-cost materials needed for these sports and a varied number of locations in which they can be exercised. Gozo is one of the most popular locations for rock climbing and mountain biking due to its steep cliffs and excellent hill climbs.
Events ranging from concerts, plays, and other forms of entertainment, but also historical re-enactments such as In Guardia attract tourists and locals alike, and provide much enjoyment. Do you love to watch sports? Don’t worry about missing any big matches or events, the most popular pubs plays them and there are plenty of appetizers and beer around.
Getting around in Malta is easy and affordable
Do you not hate this when you’re on vacation and it takes you old years to go to the beach or visit some towns, museums?? Don’t you hate it if it takes a day to do an excursion, when it takes so long to travel from one place to another, that it makes you wonder if it is worth it? If it is yes, then Malta will definitely be your vacation destination. It takes less than an hour to get from one side of the island and you will want to know about Malta earlier, so there is a high concentration of places of interest, beaches, resorts and entertainment (restaurants, clubs, movie theatres).
Many people decide to visit Malta for the second time and sometimes more, just because it takes so little money and time to get around and spend a good holiday.
Gozo creates a quiet place for your holidays in Malta
Malta isn’t just about Malta. Yeah, that’s right, Gozo, Malta’s sister island and the island that Malta used to be: local, calm and untouched is protected by the Republic of Malta. Gozo is an excellent place for relaxing holidays (in the family or in couples), with lovely beaches and views over the country. Visit the capital Victoria with its Citadel in the middle: the strong part of the size of the village used to provide protection for the people of Gozo against foreign invaders, close to the surrounding Mdina walls on Malta’s main island. The sea town of Xlendi provides a lovely view on the Bay surrounded by high rocks. It is a popular tourist destination. Ramla l-Hamla and San Blas Bay are beautiful beaches for swimming, one of them larger and busier, and another of them is more remote (steep downhill) but worth much effort.
Throughout the ages, the Maltese Islands have seen various foreign rulers come and go, leaving behind their stamps on Maltese culture. As a result, Malta is immersed in culture and heritage and offers a large number of cultural and historical sites within a very short distance of each other, making Malta a unique place on the world map of culture and heritage. Both in the Maltese language and culture remnants of Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, Turks, French and English invaders can still be found today and this melting pot of culture is of interest to many tourists visiting the Maltese islands on vacation.
Hotels and lodging of decent quality
Good quality hotels and self catering apartments at very reasonable prices are widely available. Packet deals are normally the right way, but the cost against accommodation quality is very good when booked separately. The main areas for holiday resorts in the North of Malta are St. Julian, Bugibba/Qawra and Sliema. Accommodation in St. Julian is suggested if you like to spend your days out, but it’s not recommended for families and couples seeking peace and serenity because you are close to Malta’s Nightlife Hub. Those travelers are much better places to stay, such as Mellieha and St. Paul’s Bay.
Malta is an all year round vacation destination
Flights from London to Malta take little time, but the two are extremes in terms of climate. A mild winter and warm summer allows for both hot summer holidays as well as great holidays in the winter, to escape the cold back at home. There are plenty of activities to keep you occupied, all year round, for example hiking is a popular way of spending the day out in the countryside where one can enjoy the scenery and peace. Most of the cultural and historical sites in Malta remain open throughout the year and, despite the winter months, the nightlife persists throughout the year.
Next to daily activities, Malta has a great nightlife
Nights out on the town are a ton of fun, since Malta hosts a true clubbing hub that goes by the name of Paceville (St. Julian’s) and which offers a large number of clubs which are situated literally door to door and which play different genres of music to suit everyone’s tastes. Open air clubs, however, provide a bit of a special touch to nightlife in Malta. Picking up the latest club and nice music, and dancing the night away in the open air is a must do during your holiday to Malta.
Malta offers the most different holidays of all the Mediterranean destinations
You might say that the most important reason to visit Malta is a combination of the above reasons: there’s a lot of different things you can do during your vacation in Malta and if you get the right details, you will not be bored. Baking on the beach in the sun is a great way to relax after a long day, but most people prefer to relax in a different manner. If you have any interest in visiting places other than the beach, why not travel to varied locations around the island?
Tour Mdina, Malta’s capital city located around bastions and surrounded by history and ambiance one will never forget. Gozo is a sister island to Malta and is a beautiful place to visit, with its serene country views and attractions such as the Azure Window, a rock formation sculpted by the sea.
Exciting experiences await you everywhere you go when you know where to go. There are many restaurants in the area catering to a variety of different tastes, based on cost and location. Wine bars and pubs are also popular in Malta, and a variety of different beers, lagers and liquor are sold at a reasonable price. There’s ample opportunity for clubbing and nightclubs are must see on a night out on the town.
