25 Malta Pictures That Will Spark Your Wanderlust
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.

Beautiful Zebbug Village in Gozo
Malta’s sister island of Gozo is often overlooked by visitors.
If you’re looking to escape the busy feel and noise of the main island then it’s well worth taking the 20-minute ferry ride across to more tranquil pastures.
Experience it for yourself on a full day sightseeing tour of Gozo.

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.
The comical Popeye’s Village, the original set of the 1980s Sweethaven Village, just one of the quirky attractions on the island.
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 nature back to life. The walks and hikes around the islands of Malta and Gozo become more bearable temperature-wise.
Malta has been our home for the past year. While we enjoyed all the swimming in the glorious waters of the Mediterranean sea, we also missed the cooler weather. Not being sweaty all the time feels nice right now.
