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. Here, 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.

  • 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.
