THREE REASONS YOU SHOULD BOOK A HOLIDAY TO GOZO & MALTA RIGHT NOW
Small though it is, the Mediterranean island of Malta is likely to be more cultural and cosmopolitan than you could ever imagine. In a single day, you could swim at sandy or rocky beaches, admire scenic countryside views, delve into Malta’s turbulent past, and dine at Michelin-starred restaurants. All are within quick and easy reach!
AN ISLAND OF ALL SEASONS
Malta has practically constant sunshine, but the seasons still change. Summers that are pleasant and ideal for the beach, springs that are dazzlingly colourful and bright, moderate winters, and cosy autumns. Malta is certainly endowed with beautiful weather, which makes it a desirable trip year-round, peak season or not.
Whether travelling alone, with family, or with friends, there is a complete programme of social events. You’ll never get bored in Malta thanks to events like the Strawberry Festival in the spring and the Notte Bianca cultural all-nighter in the fall, as well as the monthly village feasts in the summer and Easter Week (with its big processions and open-air exhibitions of traditional art).
Malta is the perfect vacation spot for tourists from various backgrounds.
Do you yearn for a slower tempo? You’ll adore Malta’s proximity to the sea, its opulent spas, its authentic food, and its exquisite natural beauty places.
These characteristics can be seen throughout the island in cities and villages such as the fishing hub of Marsaxlokk, Mgarr with its breathtaking countryside and sea views up north, Siggiewi and Zejtun down south, and, of course, Lija, Attard, and Balzan, also known as the Three Villages. And there are a tonne more contenders besides these few.
Alternately, if you’re a party animal who enjoys the energy of the city, Malta has enough to offer you as well. Imagine modern, high-rise buildings, 5-star hotel amenities, shopping centres with high-end and designer goods, and hip bars and clubs where you can party till the sun comes up. The well-known entertainment districts of St. Julian’s, Paceville, Sliema, and Bugibba, as well as the areas around them, are just waiting to be discovered. Award-winning international food is also available, whether for fine dining or casual eating, all of which attest to Malta’s strong cosmopolitan side.
STRONG ESSENCES, SMALL BOTTLES
Malta makes up for its small size with culture and history. In its small island setting, Malta manages to fit three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Malta is home to the legendary Megalithic Temples, the al Saflieni Hypogeum, and the capital city Valletta, which was founded by the Order of the Knights of St. John and is even older than the Pyramids. St. John’s Co-Cathedral, the Grandmaster’s Palace, the Manoel Theatre, and the National Library are among its collection of magnificent Baroque structures.
And let’s not forget the Three Cities, which are located across from the Grand Harbour from Valletta’s Barrakka Gardens. Alternately, go even further back in time with a vacation to mediaeval Mdina or the Cittadella in Gozo if you enjoy fortified cities and desire the most Instagrammable twisting streets possible.
