Malta has a gentle landscape of low green hills sloping down to a coastline that varies between wide, sandy bays and rocky coves. The clear seas are perfect for watersports and you’ll find a great choice, windsurfing, paragliding, water skiing, fishing and scuba diving are all available.
If you’re looking for sand head for Golden Bay or Mellieha or if its nightlife you desire, St Julians and Bugibba have plenty.
Malta is steeped in history and you must visit the fortified city of Valletta that was built in the 16th century and Mdina, which dates back some 4,000 years. If all this sounds a little too strenuous, take it easy on a boat trip to the sleepy islands of Gozo and Comino.
