Holidays in Malta - much more than just sunny shores
Malta offers sunshine in abundance – sitting just north of the coast of Africa and south of Sicily it enjoys a wonderful climate – but there is so much more to the island than sun-drenched sandy shores.
Malta is a truly beautiful island with fabulous scenery. It is no surprise that the epic blockbuster movies Troy and Gladiator were filmed on the stunning coastline. Why not get out and about and explore your surroundings?
Horse riding and guided walks are easily available, or you can cruise the tempting blue green waters that lap the shores on a boat trip. There's an abundance of diving schools where you can explore the excellent marine life and amazing reefs and shipwrecks.
Malta is an island steeped in history. During its 7000 year history, it has seen a varied sequence of conquests that include the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs and the Knights of the Order of Saint John. This rich cultural heritage means that Malta is an island full of fascinating architecture, traditions and customs.
There are nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites, possibly the most famous being the Megalithic Temples, the oldest free-standing structures in Europe.
There is a wealth of museums, art galleries, temples and castles to visit while on a spa break in Malta, and you will have some fascinating photographs to share when you return home.
