Unforgettable moments in the south with a Malta vacation

Malta is an incredible country in almost every way that the average tourist can think of. It is really difficult not to take this country to your heart after walking the streets of the towns and villages there, which are filled with so much history and wonderful Mediterranean nature.

Most of the buildings are painted yellow. This also helps to make everything look sunnier and brighter.

You can get to Malta very easily from anywhere

Malta lives from tourism. That is why the connections to all corners of Europe are very well developed. You can easily travel there for a few days or combine your stay there with another excursion.

A little more history

The trips to Malta are very suitable for the people who love history. So let’s say a little more about that too. It is a former British colony. The official language is English. You will need special adapters for the phones and the cars will drive on the left side of the road.

It’s all very convenient

The distances are quite short here and the prices for public transport are more than cheap. You can take a day or week ticket and easily reach any place you want.

Unfortunately, you have to expect a lot of traffic jams, especially in the high season.

The beaches

If you want to visit the beaches, you would have to go to the western part of the island. But don’t get too high hopes in this regard. The beaches are covered with rocks and they are really crowded in the season. If you want to spend more time on the beach then choose another country.

Soak up the sun at Golden Bay

In the evening, stroll by the port of Saint Julian’s

After all, there are some beautiful destinations that would be worthwhile in this regard. There are several small islands near Saint Julian’s. Golden Bay is also a great must-see destination.

Also consider Tuffieha Bay

The sights

Within ten days you would be able to visit most of the attractions. But it is best to take 2 weeks off so that you have more time. Saint Julian’s is the one destination that you definitely shouldn’t miss. You will likely pass by the capital Valletta several times anyway when traveling from one city to the other.

Mdina / Rabat is the other town that you can also visit. This is the old capital. It is known as the silent city. It is also worth coming here for a walk alone. The cathedral is beautiful and well worth a visit.

The last recommendation we want to make you is Mellieha. This locality is in the north of the island of Malta. It has a very long sandy beach. Here are also the two great beaches – Tuffieha and Golden Bay, which were just mentioned. From here, fairytale excursions are organized that are offered across the water. You should take the time to do it! It’s definitely worth it.
