Cheap Holidays to Malta
Malta is a country in southern Europe lying south of Sicily, and is also part of the Maltese archipelago with Gozo and Comino. Malta is a popular holiday destination for history lovers and sun-worshippers. With its warm climate and clean Mediterranean waters, Malta is a paradise for snorkelers and divers.
Malta is set in the heart of the Mediterranean and boasts lots of picturesque bays and stunning beaches which are bound to make your holiday unforgettable. Bugibba is one of Malta’s most popular holiday destinations on St Pauls Bay, filled with hotels and apartments, a pretty square and a waterpark, there is something to cater to all tastes. Or why not visit St Julian’s, a popular holiday hotspot and a lively town. Top up your tan on the beach at St Georges Bay followed by some traditional Maltese food on the waterfront in Spinola, before finishing off the evening in Paceville with the best nightlife and clubs on the island. Alternatively, visit Sliema. By day, people are soaking up the sun and engaging in water sports along the beach and by night its vibrant but sophisticated nightlife scene is bursting with upscale cocktail and wine bars and trendy restaurants.
Malta is soaked in ancient history and often referred to as an open-air museum, and where better to discover it than in Malta’s capital Valletta, the European Capital of Culture and World Heritage site. You will find fascinating historical spots and medieval architecture around every corner and St Johns Co-Cathedral & Museum are must see attractions housing some of Europe’s most extraordinary, famous art.
The main streets in Valletta are bordered with designer shops and there are plenty of narrow side streets where you will find lots of quaint boutiques and cafes tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Dip in the Blue Lagoon
Take a day trip to Comino Island, located between Malta and Gozo. The island has only a few cars and buildings and is virtually uninhabited. A desolate wilderness with just a couple of coves, sandy beaches and deep caves, Comino is most famous for its Blue Lagoon. With crystal clear emerald waters and white sand, this stunning bay is a hotspot for tourists during the summer months. Kick back and relax in the Maltese sun and admire the picture perfect view of the turquoise waters and the sandy cliff backdrop whilst the children splash around in the shallow lagoon.
Comino is just as popular in the winter months with hikers and photographers. There are several hiking trails across the island, where the smell of cumin and herbs fills the air.
