If you are looking for a sunny place to spend your holidays, Malta is the best place to go. This tiny island in the Mediterranean Sea is the sunniest place in Europe. What is better than enjoying the sun, interesting sightseeing and very good food?

If you come to Malta you’ll be very surprised to see how eclectic the food is. Maltese cuisine is the result of a long relationship between the islanders and the many civilizations (British, French, Turkish, Italians etc.)  who occupied the Maltese Islands over the centuries. While visiting Malta you will never be too far from an excellent restaurant, where you will be able to order pizzas, pastas or some Maltese specialties such as the rabbit stew cooked in garlic and wine.

Activities in Malta

Besides the nice food in Malta, you should take time to visit this wonderful island that's full of history. Malta is the home of the oldest temples on earth, built 6000 years ago. You will find them all around the island, but also on Gozo, the smaller island just 5 kms away from the mainland. On your way to Gozo you can stop in Comino, and the Blue Lagoon, which is one of the most beautiful beaches of the archipelago, with crystal clear sea perfect for diving and swimming. Mdina is a medieval walled town situated on a hill in the centre of the island. Don’t forget to hang out in Valetta (the capital of Malta), but don’t get lost in the tiny streets between the huge white buildings made of limestone. You can also spend hours in the 2 main museums of the island, the Grand Palace and the Cathedral of St. John founded in the 16th century by the Order of Saint John. Take a walk on the strand from Saint Julians to Sliema and see the beautiful typical fisherman boats.
