Exploring Malta: 6+1 Things to do in Malta

Malta’s location in the Mediterranean Sea provides the perfect climate to discover this charming island group all year round. Here are just some of the highlights of this small yet delightful country.

Azure Window

The spectacular Dwerja is home to some stunning natural landmarks and the Azure Window, so-called due to the colour of the sea surrounding it, is certainly stunning. One of the most photographed sites of the island, the giant archway frames the blue expanse beyond the cliffs behind.

Ggantija Temples

These ancient temples were believed to have been built by giants due to their enormity and the name Ggantija, meaning giant in Maltese, is testament to this myth. Over 5500 years old, these Megalithic Temples are the second oldest religious structures in the world and a tangible link to Malta’s fascinating pre-history.

Village Festa

Each village’s patron saint is celebrated every year with a lively Festa consisting of fireworks, music, local food and drink and, perhaps most importantly for the Maltese, the chance to get together as a community and celebrate.

Blue Lagoon

Beach lovers are spoilt for choice in Malta with an array of beautiful beaches but a trip to the tiny island of Comino will allow you the chance to experience the brilliant blue waters of the Blue Lagoon; a sheltered inlet away from the more touristy spots.

Valletta

Malta’s fascinating capital showcases modern, international shops interspersed within the historical streets of the fortress city. A vibrant city with historical architecture and buildings to be discovered at every turn, Valletta has been voted European Capital of Culture for 2018.

Life’s a beach!

If you’re ready for a rest after discovering the allure of Malta, simply head to one of its beaches. Whether you’re looking for a tourist beach with cafés and restaurants close by or you’d prefer a quieter, more secluded bay, Malta has it all.

Language courses

As a former British colony and therefore a bilingual country, Malta has become a favourite destination for travellers to learn English and it’s little wonder why. With tight regulations on language schools and high competition, the quality of teaching remains consistently high – exemplified at Maltalingua in the lively St. Julian’s Bay where competitive pricing and an international atmosphere make learning English in Malta an extremely enjoyable experience.
