Surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, Malta delights lovers of the great outdoors while inviting you to discover its history through its monuments.
Malta offers many pleasant destinations, from historical towns to clear water beaches, ideal for water activities. In Mdina, the City of Silence, you will find the Falzon Palace, one of the best-preserved fifteenth-century buildings in the archipelago, and St. Paul's Cathedral, decorated with famous paintings, such as The Conversion of St. Paul by Mattia Preti. In the capital Valletta, east of the Maltese island, museums, and gardens are multiplying. The upper Barakka garden overlooks the Great Harbour and the Three Cities Senglea, Vittoriosa, and Cospicua, to the delight of lovers of panoramic views. For their part, the Lascaris War Rooms, a crucial place of the Second World War, and the National Museum of Archaeology will delight history fans. To continue this historical immersion, you will visit Paola's Hypogeum Ħal Saflieni, a unique prehistoric temple, or on the island of Gozo, the Temple of Ggantija, one of the oldest human constructions. And to immerse yourself in the sea depths, head to Blue Lagoon Beach, on the island of Comino, where you will discover its caves and dive to look at its underwater life. Those who wish to swim in clear water while enjoying views of the islands of Gozo and Comino will prefer Paradise Bay, in the north of Malta, while Golden Bay, located in Mellieħa, is perfect for walks on a large stretch of sand. Entering a unique Maltese atmosphere is also possible in Marsaxlokk, where multiple colorful boats are moored at the port and where the daily market of this southern city is full of life.
