Malta

The Mediterranean island of Malta may be one of the smallest countries in the world, but it is jam-packed with historical sites that makes it an attractive destination despite the lack of sandy beaches which characterize so many other destinations in the Mediterranean. The southern coast of the island houses the ancient temples of Hagar Qim and Mnaidra whilst Mdina, the city of knights, also makes a fascinating relic to visit. Malta also punches well above its weight in terms of festivals, with summer celebrations at various villages throughout the summer weekends. The premier festival is arguable the Feast of Our Lady Stella Maris in Sliema which comes alive with colours thanks to its fireworks and street parades. There is also exciting nightlife on the island thanks to the bars and clubs of Paceville in St Julian’s. And whilst beaches are rare on the island, there are plenty of lidos and bathing areas from which to enjoy the gorgeous Mediterranean weather.
