Malta and Gozo

Malta and Gozo holidays


Malta has lots to shout about – there’s almost year-round sun, and plenty of upbeat resorts like Sliema, St Julian’s and Bugibba. Its three UNESCO sites – made up of ancient temples, Roman ruins and medieval cities – make it a totally unique place to visit, plus it’s now on the festival radar.

Beautiful coastline

You’ve got three islands to enjoy here: Malta’s the biggest, with sleepy Gozo floating to the north, and the tiny Comino in between. Their rocky coastline is wildly dramatic – think cliffs and romantic pebbly coves. There are a few impressive, Blue-Flagged sandy beaches dotted around, too.

Amazing sights

Cathedrals and religious structures have made their mark on the islands, with Baroque buildings filling the streets of Mdina and Valletta. But they all look positively youthful compared to the megalithic temples and remnants found near St Paul’s Bay. It’s certainly a cultural and historic melting pot.

Charming, lively resorts

Lots of Malta’s big seaside towns– especially Sliema, Qawra and Bugibba – are blessed with wide promenades, and lots of restaurants and fun things to do. St Julian’s is a really chic option, while if you’re after peace and quiet, the medieval village of Mellieha will charm your socks off.

Qawra

A buzzing seaside resort with a huge choice of restaurants, bars and seafront lidos, Qawra is the perfect spot for a blissful beach retreat.

Sliema

The town of Sliema offers up classy bars and boutiques that wrap around the coastline and on to Marsamxett Harbour.

St Paul's Bay

Located on the northern coast, St Paul’s Bay is a great base for exploring Malta and its sprinkling of pretty towns.

Mellieha Bay

Crowning Malta’s pretty north-east coast, the relaxed resort of Mellieha Bay is a tranquil spot for a glorious, sun-kissed getaway.

St Julian's

With an arc of sparkling golden sand, twinkling emerald waters and a thriving yet charming centre, St Julian's is a resort that has it all.

Bugibba

Classic Malta takes a modern twist in the form of Buġibba.

Beaches

For sheer fun in the sun, you’ll find plenty of extensive stretches of Blue Flag beach all across the Costa. But if you want to get away from it all, there are cooler, lesser-known shingle patches to sprawl out on, too. Palm-fringed pathways line these gorgeous seaside spots.

Sights

Castles, chapels, traditional towns and more classic Spanish features dot this coastal region. There are loads of epic sights to see in the resorts, while statues and palaces full of mosaics, hidden courtyards and gently playing fountains make for wonderful day trips, should you prefer to venture further out.

Eating and drinking

Cool down the Costa del Sol way with refreshing cold soup. You could try some of the white garlic recipe made with almonds, or a typical gazpacho. Seafood and international dishes are real winners too – especially if you fancy tucking in along the harbour or in the usual Brit-friendly pubs.
