Highlights and Must-See Malta Attractions


Malta is brimful with attractions and places of interest. Apart from unravelling history, sublime views, incredible sunshine and a collection of places of interest, the best time is guaranteed here on the Maltese Islands. Whether you’re looking for tourist hot spots or an off-beaten track that only the locals know about, you can find it all.


The capital city of Valletta is a place of interest in its own. The most popular museums are located in the capital including the National Museum of Archeology, the National War Museum, St John’s Co Cathedral and MUZA, the museum of art. The Palace Armoury and State Rooms are also worth a visit to discover more about the Knights of St John.


Mdina and Rabat are brimming with history especially with places like St Paul’s Catacombs, the Mdina Dungeons, St Paul’s Cathedral, Palazzo Falson, and more. Exploring Mdina during the day is magnificent but it is particularly breathtaking during the night. Mdina is perfect for a romantic stroll or a coffee and cake with a view.


The Megalithic temples, underground catacombs, churches, caves and forts are not to be missed. One of the most popular attractions is the Rotunda church in Mosta since a bomb is said to have dropped during World War II but it never exploded. During the summer months, village feasts commemorating the town’s patron saint are common. Apart from religious ceremonies, street parties and food stalls can be enjoyed by everyone.


If you’re a fan of the outdoors, the Maltese Islands have a number of green spaces to enjoy picnics, hikes and treks with friends and family. Furthermore, you cannot visit Malta without heading down to one of its spectacular beaches. Whether it’s a beach in Malta, Gozo or Blue Lagoon in Comino, you’re bound to have the best time sunbathing or carrying out water activities like snorkelling, canoeing, diving, etc.


If you happen to be in Malta on a Sunday, don’t miss out the open-air markets in Marsaxlokk (Malta’s fishing village), Valletta or Gozo.
