WELCOME TO MALTA

 


Blessed with a mild climate and set in crystal waters, Malta and sister island of Gozo offers a memorable experience. Malta combines the familiar sights of red telephone boxes and british stores with a unique culture, unspoilt countryside and a warm climate. The tiny archipelago nation of Malta oozes with charm and Mediterranean hospitality. Two distinct periods of rule – the Knights of the order of St John of Jerusalem and the British , have shaped Malta’s history and left a rich legacy of architecture and sights. Its history penetrates the ambiance culture of each island, with venerable Latin fortresses standing watch in Valletta Grand Harbour and Roman ruins peppered throughout the landscape. Malta has traditionally appealed to  a mature group of travellers, but its family friendly beaches, water sports, outdoor activities, nightlife and cuisine makes it ideal for all age groups and tastes.
