History & Culture


A treasure trove of heritage and culture – The islands’ architectural heritage, spanning seven millennia, will present an impressive backdrop to all your activities. Malta and its sister islands of Gozo and Comino offer far more than the traditional Mediterranean sun and sea. They present a veritable treasure trove of heritage and culture, both ancient and modern – a living testimony to 7,000 years of civilization.

Walking through the grid-lined streets of Malta’s baroque capital, Valletta, described by Sir Walter Scott as “that splendid town, quite like a dream”, and admiring its churches, squares and palazzos, or taking a late-night stroll through the winding streets of the silent, walled medieval city of Mdina, will doubtless add a special feel to this memorable visit.

A journey of Discovery

Once here you will find yourself in an oasis of tranquility. Nevertheless, it will be difficult to resist the temptation to explore the spectacular seascape of islands, ranging from quiet coves and alluring sandy beaches to rugged coastline and towering cliffs. Inlets of shimmering sand with evocative names such as Golden Bay, Paradise Bay and Ramla l-Ħamra will provide an intimate spot for a dip.

The islands lend themselves perfectly to the practice of any water-sport under the sun, with diving being one of the major crowd pullers. Malta, Gozo and Comino offer excellent sport facilities both for beginners as well as for experienced open water, cave and wreck divers.

There is no better way to see the sights from an alternative vantage point than to take a relaxing cruise around the islands. Sailing, kayaking, jet-skiing, kite-surfing and paragliding also provide an alternative sea view.

Gozo… the magic of Calypso´s Isle

Accessible from Malta by a 25 minute ferry crossing or a 15 minute seaplane ride, Gozo’s charm is apparent the moment you arrive. Greener, more rural and just one third the size of Malta, Gozo moves to a noticeably different, more leisurely rhythm than its sister island. According to Greek legend, the temptress nymph Calypso lured Odysseus to Gozo, keeping him prisoner for seven years. Today it seems that visitors willingly surrender themselves to Calypso’s charms, as they admire the glimmering red sand of Ramla Bay from the vantage point at the nymph’s legendary home.

Boat trips & watersports – Explore the ways less travelled

The sea can be enjoyed from the beaches and beneath the waves but also offers great opportunities in the form of watersports and boat trips. Several cruises and day trips depart daily from Sliema and Bugibba jetties, while watersports range from kayaking and surfing to jetskiing and chartering a speed boat or yacht!


Maltese Islands

Gozo is the smaller sister island of Malta, however its character is unique. It is most famous for its diving, however it is also much greener, more traditional and slower-paced than Malta. Gozo is not only worth visiting, but worth staying in for a few days to fully appreciate what it has to offer.

Enjoy a waking dream at the Blue Lagoon – The most famous aspect of Comino island, which lies between Malta and Gozo, is surely the Blue Lagoon, which appears like something out of the Caribbean.
