About Malta

St. Paul's Bay Malta

The Maltese archipelago lies virtually at the centre of the Mediterranean, 93 km south of Sicily and 288 km north of Africa. The archipelago consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino with a total population of over 400,000 inhabitants occupying an area of 316 square kilometers.

Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre. Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural, characterised by fishing, tourism, crafts and agriculture. Comino, the smallest of the trio, has one hotel and is largely uninhabited. 

With superbly sunny weather, attractive beaches, a thriving nightlife and 7,000 years of intriguing history, there is a great deal to see and do.

There are walled cities and baroque towns, sleepy villages and bustling fishing ports. Then there is modern, urban living with cafés, nightlife, clubs and restaurants. 
 
There are places in which to live it up and others where it seems like time stood still. In Malta you can enjoy life at its simplest one day and at its most cosmopolitan the next. However short your stay, it's possible to have a taste of island life in a variety of settings - from traditional villages to urban resorts.
 
Malta's capital, the World Heritage City of Valletta, and the medieval fortified towns of Mdina and Cittadella in Gozo, are the Islands' historical highlights. Tas-SliemaBugibbaQawra and St. Julian's in Malta and Marsalforn and Xlendi in Gozo are the main resorts. They bustle with activity, and not just in summer.
 
Valletta is a treasurehouse of art and architecture. This city of the Knights remains virtually intact, its streets flanked by palaces and tiny, old-world shops. Across Grand Harbour lie the Three Cities of Senglea, Cospicua and Vittoriosa. Older than Valletta, they offer a fascinating insight into the islands' maritime fortunes.
 
The southern fishing village of Marsaxlokk and neighbouring resort town of Marsascala are also worth a visit.
With little effort, just a desire to explore, you'll find inland towns and villages with character and treasures of their own. Churches reveal masterpieces by the artists to the Knights while each village square is a slice of history, its café-bar the hub of authentic rural life.
