"The Island of Legends"

Malta Tourism

Situated in the central Mediterranean Sea, south of Italy, Malta is an archipelago comprised of three main islands: Malta, Gozo, and Comino. Temples, fortresses, sandy beaches, cliffs, and jutted coves are what make this small island nation worth visiting, coupled with thrilling activities like scuba diving, snorkelling, and a long and fascinating history going back to the days before Christ.

The landscape of Malta is covered with rocky coasts with cliffs made out of limestone and bays that preserve pristine waters. Jaunting to one of the many marinas around Malta will treat you to a sight of brightly coloured traditional crafts. Going under is yet another adventure for divers, and snorkelling as the Maltese seas, contain hidden mysteries from coves to crags to wrecks.

The archipelago's Mediterranean location blesses it with a pleasant climate, characterized by hot summers and mild winters. Summers, here, are perfect for enjoying the numerous beaches and exploring the historical sites. At the same time, the cooler months offer a quieter atmosphere and the opportunity to experience the local way of life.

Despite its deep, historic roots, Malta has modern cities like St. Julian, mixing a host of nightlife activities with ancient architecture, making you feel like you are in a mixed time portal due to historic and modern architecture on display, blended together so harmoniously.
