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.

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.

  1. Gorgeous guys! 3000 plus days of sunshine yearly is inspired. I love this place from a cyber perspective, but need to visit soon. I figure it feels like Cyprus, which I did visit 2 years ago. Sunny almost all of the time, gorgeous weather, stunning water and of course, that Medi Island feel to it. Brilliant snap shots!


    1. Hi Ryan, thanks so much for your comment, so glad you liked the photos 🙂
      Malta is very picturesque! We haven’t been to Cyprus, but if it has a similar feel to it, then it sounds like a great place!
      We hope you get to visit this tiny rock in the Mediterranean some day to see it for yourself.
