What to do in Malta
Though Malta is indeed tiny, we guarantee that you will never run out of things to do here.
Valletta - The Capital City
You cannot visit Malta without experiencing some of our most historic sites. Valletta (Malta’s capital city) is a major hot spot in terms of culture and history – It’s a city that hosts various palaces, museums, and cathedrals which define Malta’s rich story. Should you get tired of sight-seeing, you can rest at one of the various cafes and jazz bars around.
Mdina - The Silent City
Get lost in the labyrinth streets that Mdina offers. Surrounded all the way by its huge bastions walls, Mdina is one of Europe’s best examples of an ancient walled city and is extraordinary in its mix of medieval and baroque architecture. While strolling around Mdina, make sure to visit St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Malta is home to an exciting nightlife culture with a wide array of parties, clubs, and festivals of the same level of quality you will find anywhere else abroad. Paceville is a major hotspot in Malta for this, but you can also visit Buġibba, San Ġwann, and Rabat for other entertainment options.
Gozo & The Inland Sea
All visitors to Malta ought to find a day to visit our sister island. Gozo is very similar to Malta with the exception that it is much quieter, more agricultural and full of scenic hills spread along the island. Make sure to visit when you are in the mood for a proper day of tranquillity. Its historical sites and fantastic views simply complete the island.
Comino & The Blue Lagoon
Visiting Comino and its crystal clear sea is a must when visiting Malta. This island is much smaller then Malta and Gozo, however it gives a good opportunity for swimming in the right weather conditions. Once there, it is also recommended to hop on a small boat and visit the caves and small beaches this beautiful island is surrounded with.
Diving & Swimming
Swimming is actually one of Malta’s most popular activities, particularly during the summer time. We have a vast range of beautiful sandy and rocky beaches that you can choose from. The crystal-clear, blue Mediterranean Sea is an ideal spot for all water-sports enthusiasts. Scuba Diving is possible all year round, and Malta has some of the best diving locations in the Mediterranean because of its clean waters, underwater caves, wrecks and colourful marine life.
History enthusiasts really must find the time to visit Malta’s megalithic temples – we have several of these all over the island. The Ġgantija temples in Gozo are so old that they even predate Egypt’s Giza pyramids.
Malta’s intriguing and fascinating history spans at least 7,000 years, and this little island is home to the world’s oldest freestanding temples, cathedrals, palaces, gardens and many historical museums. Malta has been host to many different nations over the centuries, which explains the several traditions and varied architecture.
3 Cities - Isla, Birgu and Bormla
The famous 3 Cities are yet another great choice for cultural exploration. Located in the south of Malta, Birgu, Bormla and Isla are known for being maritime cities that host some of the best museums on the island. The cities, also known as Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua, have provided a shelter and also served as a fortress for many people who settled on the Island in the past.
Of course, everyone loves food, so we recommend taking the time to try some of Malta’s local and traditional dishes while you are here. The Maltese cuisine is Mediterranean with a few unique twists. We are known for our stuffed vegetables, soups, seafood, and meat dishes including beef, pork and rabbit. And of course, being an island, fish – of all kinds, shape, size and flavour is an indulgence not to be missed.
