Small and mighty
Malta may be small in terms of size, but it’s huge in versatility and a haven for travellers.
Small yet stunning, the tiny island of Malta (316 sq km, comprising the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino) attracts visitors from all walks of life the world over. Whether you’re visiting because you’re intrigued by its history or you’re simply after lazing about on the honey-gold beaches all day, Malta is sure to put, and keep, a smile on your face.
Delight in the island’s prehistoric temples and baroque architecture, be seduced by Gozo, feast on a fenkata (rabbit stew) and a can of Cisk (local, award-winning beer), be startled by the sudden and noisy fireworks of a nearby festa, or simply sit back and watch the rattling busses and colourful fishing boats go by.
Pick a random shabby bar near the ocean, where Bob Dylan plays on repeat and watch the people gather for barbecues as the sun beings to set.
Live the energy of these beautiful islands! Few places can stimulate and relax your senses at the same time in the same way Malta does.
