Top 5  Places to Visit on Malta Holidays

Gozo: Overlooking the pristine Mediterranean coastline, Gozo is an idyllic island where Baroque architecture and churches dominate the skyline above pretty towns and villages. The countryside is verdant, and the coastal views are heavenly, making it a much-loved destination on holidays in Malta. Believed to be the renowned Calypso’s Isle of Homer’s Odyssey, Gozo possesses a mystical charm. This beautiful island is home to Victoria – a fortified medieval city, the ancient Ggantija Temples, and the archaeological site of Marsalforn. From its white, sandy beaches and traditional Maltese villages to its incredible history, Gozo one of the best places to visit on holidays to Malta.

Valletta: Bearing the crown as Malta’s capital, Valletta is a vibrant city where knights once resided in the Grandmaster’s Palace. Inside the palace you’ll find magnificent paintings and a collection of armouries, which relay ancient tales of the knights.

The city nuzzles between the Grand and Marsamxett harbours and plays host to an opulent 16th-century church, Saint John’s Cathedral. Anyone who has a passion for history and wants to delve into the past on Malta holidays, will be in their element in this World Heritage city. But there’s plenty of modern-day culture to discover here too with trendy bars and restaurants lining the streets.

St Julian’s: Lying on the east coast of Malta, St Julian’s is a colourful town where the nightlife thrives with busy waterside restaurants and bars. This is a great place to visit on holidays to Malta and you can tuck into some authentic Maltese cuisine overlooking the water. Once a sleepy fishing village, St Julian’s is now popular with the tourist crowd. But if you want to escape the hustle and bustle and explore its ancient sites, head to Balluta Bay where you’ll find its neo-Gothic church and Art-Nouveau buildings. Alternatively, Spinola Bay is the perfect place for a spot of romance, and you can watch the fishermen’s boats bobbing up and down on the sea or wander up to the old chapel.

Marsaxlokk Bay: The pretty fishing village of Marsaxlokk is well-known for its fabulous fish restaurants where you can sample some of the tastiest fish in Malta. Less populated by tourists, it remains a more traditional bay where locals hang out along the promenade and at the weekly fish market. You can stroll along the harbour and the coast, perhaps pausing to take a dip in one of the secluded swimming areas or to simply soak up the gorgeous views.

Mdina: This UNESCO World Heritage Site has certainly earned its prestigious title. Standing atop a hillside overlooking the Mediterranean, Mdina is a medieval walled city, once the capital of Malta, where its Main Gate gives way to a wonderful concoction of historic buildings. Mdina is known as the ‘Silent City’ and there are several sites of interest that you should really try to see during holidays in Malta. Top of the list are the Baroque St Paul’s Cathedral, the National Museum of Natural History at the Palazzo Vilhena, and the landscaped Ditch Garden.
