Historic Walking Areas · Sacred & Religious Sites · Gardens
As the largest island in the country, Island of Malta is a center for Mediterranean discovery, luxurious relaxation, historical exploration, and buzzing European nightlife. Surrounded by ancient temples and old cities, the island almost feels like an archaeological site that's been converted into a prime vacation spot. Tourists flock here for the aquamarine waters of the Mediterranean Sea, but you don't have to spend all your time on the beach. With a plethora of activities for any type of traveler, you may find yourself exploring a national museum, admiring the collections of boats and yachts in the bays, or people-watching in one of the many bustling squares. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Island of Malta and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
