Flying to Malta

The island of Malta

Mediterranean maritime climate

25 degrees

3 hours

A small island with a tumultuous history. Due to its strategic location in the Mediterranean, Malta has been an interesting prey for foreign naval powers over the centuries. That location is still vital today, although it is holidaymakers that now come ashore. Malta has been part of the European Union since 1 May 2004. This has allowed tourism to grow steadily. Beach holidays are popular, but there are also plenty of active and adventurous things to do on the island. You can walk any of the numerous hiking trails on the island, go climbing on the coastline cliffs, and snorkel or scuba dive in the clear Mediterranean Sea.

Places to visit in Malta

The historic capital Valletta is one of the highlights of Malta. Simply meander through the streets and you will understand why. Valletta is also home to the Grandmaster's Palace, which dates back to 1571 and has two courtyards, Neptune Court and Prince Alfred Court. The interior of the palace is decorated with countless frescoes and paintings. St. John's Co-Cathedral is one of Malta's major tourist attractions. As subdued as the exterior is, the interior of the building is overwhelming. Between the islands of Malta and Gozo lies a lagoon that is aptly named the Blue Lagoon. A day trip to this breathtaking pool of water is one of the top excursions in Malta.

Discover Malta

Forget Egypt and Stonehenge: Malta is home to Europe's oldest temples. Between 3500 and 2500 BC, the rulers had several megalithic temples built. The Tarxien Temples have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1980. The temple of Hagar Qim is unique, as it actually functions as a gigantic clock. The construction is so ingenious that it tells the time. Phoenicians, Greeks, Punics, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spaniards, the Johanniter Order, Turks, French and British: they all occupied Malta at some point. All these cultures have left their mark that continues to have an effect today. Tourists will often recognise specific features from home, without being able to place them precisely.
