Where to Stay

When deciding where to stay in Malta, the first thing to consider is what kind of trip you are looking for. The island is easy to get around, so decide for yourself whether you’d like to be on the busy streets of Valletta or somewhere a little more isolated, like the sparsely populated island of Comino. Valletta is Malta’s main centre, where some of the best architecture can be found and ferries/buses head to most of the other popular destinations. Sliema is popular with many visitors, a more modern looking town with some of Malta’s best shopping and a fantastic restaurant and cafe culture. The walled town of Mdina at the centre of Malta, the largest of the three islands, is a beautiful place to stay. Comino, the smallest island, is rural and home to some of the finest beaches; Gozo, the northernmost island is less populated than Malta and offers a similar mixture of beaches and quaint, historic towns.

Things to Do

Malta is a peaceful island with a great and varied selection of things to do. Valetta, the capital city, is compact enough to get around the main sights on foot in a few hours. Visitors can even follow the path of the walls that fortified the city hundreds of years ago. A boat tour around the harbour is also a must visit attraction, highlighting the city’s resilience in the face of siege and multiple invasions throughout history. Going even further back through history, the prehistoric temples of Mnajdra and Hagar Qim are among the oldest known buildings in the world; significantly older than Stonehenge, the atmosphere as you walk around these ancient structure is not be missed. Once you’ve had your fill of history, go and relax on one of the plethora of beautiful beaches. The blue lagoon on Comino is often picked as one of Malta’s most beautiful and peaceful spots.

Eating and Drinking

The town’s and cities of Malta are packed with quaint squares where visitors can sit out and enjoy the sunshine with a glass of wine and a bite to eat. Malta’s mixed history has given it a fantastically unique cuisine with a range of influences from Greece, Italy, the Middle East and even further afield. Pastizzi and Qassatat are the most famous snacks, delicious flaky pastries stuffed with ricotta cheese or a green pea filling, these are served in bars, bakeries and street stalls everywhere you go. Tasty homemade soups and stews are central to maltese cuisine, rabbit is one of the most popular meats, often served in a delicious stew of wine and herbs. Being a mediterranean island, there’s plenty of seafood: Try a Torta Tal-Lampuki, a tasty fish pie that’s very well loved by the locals. Kinnie is a popular soft drink that’s only found in Malta, a tasty concoction of orange and herbs.

Getting Around

Malta’s small size makes it a pretty easy place to get around. The main towns and cities are connected by a comprehensive public transport network. There are ferry services between several towns and between the three inhabited islands: the service from Malta to Gozo takes around 20 minutes. Ferries to Comino are less frequent, be sure to check local timetable. Both of the larger 2 islands have cheap and convenient bus services running between the major towns and sights. Visitors wanting to get out on their will find it pretty easy to rent a car on Malta, cars can be transported between Malta and Gozo but are not permitted on Comino; due to the age and size of the roads, several other towns have driving restrictions in place. Malta’s quiet roads, and the fact that all three islands are very flat, make it a perfect place to explore by bicycle; rentals can be found in any of the major towns.
