Malta’s petite but perfectly formed islands are packed full of intense history, mixed cultures and creative inspiration. Its rocky coastline and limestone cliffs are punctuated with hidden coves, red-gold beaches and crystal clear waters. From prehistoric temples to medieval fortresses, or rustic villages emerging from rock faces to modern marinas, you can almost witness humanity through the ages. Visitors can spend their time simply enjoying the islands’ natural beauty, learn more about its fascinating past in the many museums or be inspired by its contemporary creativity through its diverse array of galleries. Let the welcoming locals take you under their wing and spoil you with their festivals, traditions and fusion of Sicilian and Middle Eastern cuisine. Whether you prefer scuba diving or rock climbing, wandering around a 5000-year-old necropolis or a modern art museum, lazing on the beach or exploring hidden streets, Malta has it all.
