Visit Malta Stay With Us Book A Room

CNN Travel ranks Malta as the first place – the ideal Christmas destination for tourists to visit this festive season. And here’s why!


Although Malta might be just a tiny blob in the Mediterranean Sea, the islands have always taken Christmas very seriously. From the traditional presepji to the festive decorations that dominate the streets in Valletta, Malta’s capital city, you’re bound to have a holly, jolly Christmas. CNN is quick to agree since it rated Malta as the number one destination this Christmas.


Here’s why Malta is the perfect Christmas destination this year.


Christmas Lights Are In Full Swing

Malta is brimming with Christmas decorations at this time of year. Valletta is full of spectacular lights that shine all over the city. However, other areas in Malta get into the Christmas spirit. Sliema is also packed with festivities. Lights shine brightly in streets and Christmas carols will entertain you while ticking off your Christmas list.


Winter Countryside Walks

One of Malta’s highlights is definitely the weather. While it might get too hot in summer, it’s the perfect time to explore our tiny island during winter. The sun is shining while everywhere is looking greener than ever.

The Traditional Elements

Malta’s religious virtues are prominent during the festive season. Cribs and nativity scenes are displayed all across the island. It’s a Maltese tradition to have a crib in your household but the nativity scene is also on display in various villages.


Festive Food

Maltese people know their food better than anyone else which is why Christmas lunch is a highlight at most hotels in Malta. Visit your festive brochures across our hotels for the best Christmas #AXperience.
