The island of Malta is 100 km south of Sicily and enjoys a warm, dry climate year round. It is blessed with sandy beaches, beautiful scenery, excellent modern hotels and an interesting history. And wherever you go, the islands scenery and architecture provide a spectacular backdrop. The colors are striking, honey-colored stone against the deepest of Mediterranean blues. The Maltese Islands have been described as one big open-air museum.
Malta is holidaying as the mood takes you. And with near year-round sun, you can indulge in outdoor living at its best. One of the joys of being on the Maltese islands is that, no matter where you are, you’re never far from one of the many magnificent beaches or secluded little coves.
Typical of the Mediterranean life style, the islanders approach to life is to enjoy and celebrate it as much as possible. The night life is always bustling – there are scores of clubs to visit, excellent wine bars and first-rate restaurants to try. The islands have a full calendar of events to see, such as the Summer Malta Arts Festival, the Valletta Barogue Festival, the Opera Festival, the Choir Festival, the International Jazz Festival and major music concerts.
Malta also offers wellness and spa facilities at the luxury hotels and club resorts. You will also find many Natural escapes. The Maltese islands lend themselves to outdoor activities such as rock climbing, scuba diving and more.
Island hopping: for a tempo and scene change from Malta itself, hop to the sister islands of Gozo and Comino. Here, you’ll holiday within a holiday and at the most relaxed of Mediterranean paces.
