A southern European island all of its very own, Malta is a holiday destination with a very distinct style. Delve into 7,000 years' worth of history, enjoy easy access to the islets of Gozo and Comino and bask in the sweltering heat that lingers all year round.
As one of the world's smallest countries, Malta is easy to navigate, making it possible to complete a great number of activities in just a few days. Home to nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a strong religious presence, expect plenty of beautiful buildings and gardens to admire, as well plenty of youth-friendly amusements befitting of the country's cultural focus on family and children. If you've got youngsters in your holiday party, visit in winter to enjoy lower temperatures and prepare to be fussed over - the Maltese love tourists!
