Exploring Valletta

Our capital city is always an exceptional place to visit. It’s even more extraordinary in the evenings, when the streets are lit up with a magical glow and filled with chatter of good friends. Take a stroll through the recently-revived ‘Strada Stretta’ or enjoy a drink or two at the various pubs and wine bars across the city. Why not try out the Cheeky Monkey Gastropub located in Merchants Street? You can choose from a variety of cheeky cocktails and legendary burgers to get you ready for a long night of fun!

Enjoy a glass of wine

Distinct wine bars are present all over the island. Mdina is one of the top spots to enjoy a glass of wine during a relaxed evening with your special one. You can head to Mdina, also known as the ‘Silent City’, which offers breath taking views of all the island. It’s the perfect setting to celebrate the weekend in style. Alternatively, you can have a drink at one of the many Sliema bars that are walking distance from your hotel, or go a little further and enjoy a glass of wine at one of the bars in St Julian’s or Gzira!

Sunsets in Malta are spectacular. You and your loved one can relax and unwind at one of the romantic spots to watch the sunset in Malta, or you can enjoy the sunset with friends and take stunning photos that don’t need a filter! The best spots in Malta to witness a glorious sunset are Top of the World in Ghargur, at Ghajn Tuffieha Bay and from the Dingli Cliffs. If you happen to be in Gozo, then Qala and Il-Qbajjar are the places to go.

Take a walk in nature

Sunset is not the only time to visit the beach! For most of the year, the weather is mild and you can go for a walk in the hills surrounding Ghajn Tuffieha Bay. There are some incredible views to witness from there! Alternatively, you can enjoy a walk in nature at the Victoria Lines, or Buskett Gardens! Why not head to Gozo for a day trip during your weekend in Malta – the smaller island is full of green areas just waiting to be explored!
