Malta & Gozo holidays

Find history and beauty on the islands of Malta

Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso's Cave - Malta is positively mythic. The narrow cobblestone streets of its towns are crowded with Renaissance cathedrals and baroque palaces. The neighbouring island of Gozo has a distinct character all of its own. The colourful countryside is prettier, the pace is slower and there are fewer tourists.

  • One of the joys of these two islands is that, no matter where you are, you’re never far from one of the many beaches or secluded little coves
  • For Norman and Baroque architecture, as well as a laidback ambience head to Malta’s ancient capital Mdina
  • The capital Valletta is busier and there are plenty of shops, restaurants and historic sites to enjoy
  • You can reach Gozo by a short ferry ride and it is well worth the trip to experience the change of tempo on Malta’s sister island
  • A trip to the sea caverns of the Blue Grotto – one of the most beautiful spots in Malta – is a must highlight of any trip to these Mediterranean Islands.
