Situated in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, Malta is an archipelago of seven islands, offering an exhilarating contrast of colours: the azure of the Mediterranean, the mellow honey-coloured limestone which characterises the architecture, clear skies, colourful fiestas and wealth of historical attractions. The Islands are a feast for the senses.
As a tourist destination Malta is popular for its warm climate ensuring an eclectic and varied charter vacation. Discover its architectural and historical monuments and most of all the picturesque harbor of Malta’s capital, Valletta. The many bays and pristine beaches around Malta are a must see, especially on board a luxury yacht.
Between one region and another, one can sense the difference! The North, the most rugged of all Malta’s regions, offers spectacular views across to Comino and Gozo. It also has Malta’s most established beach and holiday resorts, Buġibba, Qawra, St. Paul’s Bay, and Malta’s largest sandy beach at Mellieħaincluding other larger sandy bays, Golden Bay, Għajn Tuffieħa and Paradise Bay. Sliema and St. Julian’s are Malta’s main coastal resort towns and a heartland for shopping, entertainment and café life. They also house some of Malta’s newest hotels and apartments. Also, St. Julian’s and Paceville are Malta’s main nightlife areas.
The South is characterised by its fishing villages and quiet bays. It offers an authentic insight into Maltese rural life. It is also the location of two of Malta’s prehistoric temples, Ħagar Qim and Mnajdra. The region is largely undeveloped. Most hotels are in the harbour town of Marsaskala, a southern resort which bustles by night yet is charming and quiet by day.
Central Malta is dominated by Malta’s ancient capital, Mdina, a near perfect example of a medieval walled town. Beyond the walls, lies Rabat, a large town of Roman origin. The central region has some of the most interesting inland options, ranging from palaces to town house hotels.
Worlds apart from the main resorts and the capital Valletta, are the Islands’ villages. They are theepitomé of Mediterranean life. The soul of the Islands’ past! Yet, with their lively festas and unique everyday life, they are very much part of the Islands’ culture today.
Even the smallest village has its own baroque wonder, the parish church. And to locals, each village has its unique character. After visiting a few, you’ll soon pick up on the differences. Some are known for theirfestas and traditions, others are national gems as they house archaeological or architectural treasures.Then there are the seaside villages, where the rhythm of life is dictated by fishing, while life in inland villages is determined by the harvesting of the various fruits and vegetables grown nearby.
