Have you been to the home of some of the oldest monuments on earth? Have you ever heard of this tiny rock in the south of Europe boasting 3,000+ sunshine hours a year?
If not, we hope that these 25 Malta pictures will inspire your next trip to this Mediterranean island.
Hugged by rugged coastline, surrounded by azure seas, this rocky isle is still off the radar of most travellers. Located between Sicily and the North African coast, Malta is rough around the edges but very warm in both climate and local attitude.
This 316 km² archipelago could, apparently, fit 5 times into London, but don’t let the size fool you. While Malta might seem like a sleepy island during the winter months, it is brimming with exciting things to see and do all year round.
You won’t believe how much stuff there’s to do in Malta once the summer hits the island. From ziplining to Jeep safaris, the tiny islands of Malta and Gozo are packed with water and off-road activities.
Sailing adventures in Malta are easy to experience too; simply rent a charter boat or join an excursion with the local companies.
However autumn, winter or early spring can be equally good for a more chilled Maltese holiday. Plus it’s cheaper too.
During the colder months on the island, the rain brings the nature back to life. The walks and hikes around the islands of Malta and Gozo become more bearable temperature-wise.
