The Maltese Islands are awash with exciting opportunities to discover its hidden charm, ranging from seafaring cruises round the Maltese Archipelago, a stroll in the rugged countryside to the majestic UNESCO Historical sites.

Due to its unique geographical position, the coastal waters offer a variety of incredibly rich diving spots. Underwater caves like the Santa Maria, shipwrecks like the Um El Faroud in Wied  iż-Żurrieq and reefs are all waiting to be explored. Sport enthuasiasts can easily indulge in snorkelling, kayaking, windsurfing and all kinds of water-sports, all readily available at breathtaking locations such as Mellieħa bay.

If water-sports is not your cup of tea, Malta has a number of pristine beaches for sunbathing. Be it sandy or rocky, all beaches attract a vast number of tourists; the beautiful rock formations at St. Peter’s pool or the crystal clear waters at blue lagoon, whatever you choose, rest assured Malta has something in store for you. From one of the boat operators all over the island you can book one of the many ferry cruises that will gently rock you all around Malta and the famed Comino. The traditional Luzzu’s, operating to and fro the 3 Cities offer a quintessentially Maltese experience, especially if accompanied by a leisurely stroll along our welcoming promenades in Sliema, Buġibba or Marsascala.

The sea-battered rock formations and warm climate make Malta an ideal location not only for rock-climbing but also for abseiling, zip-lining and trekking. For the less adventurous tourist, offroad vehicles can be rented in order to conquer the most rugged of terrains.  The tourist can drive his or her way up the Mellieħa Red Tower, Popeye Village, Fomm ir-Riħ in Imġarr and Dingli Cliffs. Quad bikes can also be rented to roam Gozo’s untouched countryside and its coastline areas to witness astonishing views.  The popoular Hop-on Hop-off bus is a fun and time saving way to experience the history and beauty of the Maltese Islands.

Despite its above-average population density, a birds-eye view reveals the presence of numerous terraced fields which are seperated by the tradional rubble wall, il-ħajt tas-sejjieħ, built using a craft passed on from generation to generation. Malta is bestowed with winding paths, ideal for a stroll such as  Żurrieq valley leading to Blue Grotto, along Għar Lapsi and Dingli Cliffs overlooking the West where the sun sets, making for some spectactular views. Il-Buskett, a small woodland, Il-Miżieb or even Ta’ Qali are ideal locations to spend time with your family among the trees and the wonderful pine scent.

In addition to the pristine countryside, Malta is festooned with cafeterias specialising in artisanal cooking, filling the air with the  scent of Pastizzi and cappuccinos. Malta also enjoys a bustling nightlife where the night-dwelling tourist can visit our high quality winebars and indulge in traditional cuisine. It therefore comes to no surprise that Malta hosts a variety of cultural events, music concerts, festivals and theatrical productions.
