Malta – Your Next Destination!

 

Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, you will find the beautiful Maltese Islands, ready for you to explore and discover. Malta is rich in culture, history, archaeology and prehistoric treasures. However, it is also abundant in entertainment facilities, attractions and amusing events.

 

So, where is Malta? It is 93km from the South of Sicily in Italy and around 300km North from the North African Coast. The Maltese Islands are made up of three small islands, namely Malta (the main and biggest island), Gozo and Comino. The islands are located in a strategic location, in the heart of Europe, forming part of the EU and the Schengen Area.

 

The official languages of the country are Maltese and English and the currency used is the Euro. The size of its population is around 400,000 people while, geographically, it is around 316 square kilometers. The leading religion in Malta is Roman Catholicism.

 

The capital city is Valletta, the European Capital of Culture for 2018. Although it is one of the smallest capitals in Europe, it is also one of the most historical. Valletta was built in 1566 by the Knights of Malta. Surrounded by Baroque buildings and architecture, the capital is one of the top things to do in Malta.

 

Apart from Malta’s mesmerising history and culture, its gorgeous weather is something to look forward to, especially if you’re visiting from colder countries. The country benefits from long, hot summers and brief, mild winters. Malta has approximately 3,000 hours of sunshine every year and the temperature in winter rarely ever goes below zero.

 

Apart from the main island of Malta, the sister island of Gozo is also popular for its idyllic and peaceful greenery, offering breathtaking views of the islands. Gozo is known for outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, snorkelling, biking and rock climbing. Comino is popular for one of Malta’s most beautiful bays, the Blue Lagoon. The island is inhabited by only a few people but, during the summer, the bay is brimful with locals and foreigners alike.

 

No matter which season you visit the Maltese Islands, you can experience the historical culture, traditional and entertaining events and the beautiful beaches and attractions. Your Malta #AXperience will surely be extraordinary!
