Malta, the stunning Mediterranean island, is having a moment in the spotlight, with many Irish tourists finally venturing to its sun-kissed rocky shores and winding city streets.
Make Malta Yours
One of the nicest things about Malta is that it caters to a wide range of vacationers. You may experience Malta in a variety of ways, from city breaks to romantic getaways and family vacations.
Stay In Valletta For A City Break
Malta’s capital is Valletta, a tiny city. It’s an excellent city getaway for a few nights. Valletta, a historic maze of streets that doesn’t feel overly touristy, is a great year-round city break destination. It’s rich in history and features stunning Baroque buildings. It has a wide range of accommodation options, from luxury to budget, as well as a wide range of things to see and do, including plenty of heritage and museums to visit. Off-season discounts are also available.
For A Family Vacation, Visit Bugibba, Qawra, And St. Paul’s Bay
These three resort towns, located next to each other on the island’s northern coast, are ideal for families visiting Malta.
These family-friendly resorts are jam-packed with activities and have excellent transportation links to popular tourist destinations on the island, such as Valletta and the historic city of Mdina. It’s also simple to get a boat to Comino and Gozo from here.
There are also other wonderful beaches nearby, including Bugibba’s man-made sandy beach, Qawra’s beach, and smaller beaches in St. Paul’s Bay.
Stay At Mellieha For A Beach Vacation
This is one of the most popular resorts on Malta’s main island, divided between tourist-friendly resorts and the more traditional hamlet of Mellieha, where local life can still be observed.
The majority of Malta’s beaches are of the dramatic, rocky-outcrop sort, while those around Mellieha, notably Mellieha Bay, are large and sandy. Ghajn Tuffieha and Golden Bay, two neighboring magnificent beaches, are well worth a visit.
Try Sliema For A Romantic Getaway
What was once a modest fishing town has evolved into one of the busiest districts on the island, home to many inhabitants and inviting to visitors. Sliema is an excellent alternative for a romantic weekend in Malta. It has a lot of local flavors, and a walk along the 10km promenade is truly breathtaking.
St. Julian’s/Paceville Is A Great Place To Visit With Friends
These two contemporary towns are adjacent and comprise the hub of the island’s nightlife, making this a wonderful choice for a group visit to Malta. Paceville, in particular, has a large range of eating options, restaurants, and clubs.
Stay In Gozo For Something Different
Gozo is the second-largest of the three islands that comprise Malta. Gozo provides a much calmer and more local experience than a visit to the main island.
The island has unspoiled beaches, peaceful villages, and the major town of Victoria. There is a broad choice of lodging available, from 5-star luxury to budget hotels in Sliema Malta.
