Sun Soaked, Culture-Filled and Adventure Everywhere: Magical Malta
An often overlooked stop-off in Europe, Malta offers the inquisitive traveller a taste of culture, history and adventure crammed into an easily exploreable island in the sun. Whether you’re a sun-worshipper, adventure seeker, culture-vulture or all of the above, Malta is the ideal destination to indulge in your travel passions. A former British colony, it is steeped in history – you can explore a great number of pre-historic temples, passageways and tombs giving you an insight into life on Malta over 4500 years ago. Why not trace the story of the Knights of St. John, with their legacy visible not only on the famous Maltese Cross but also prominent in the places they inhabited – Three Cities, Fort St. Angelo and Valletta?
If exploring discovering Malta’s history first hand isn’t for you then the pleasant climate offers you the chance to enjoy year-round outdoor activities in beautiful surroundings. Why not enjoy a spot of golf at the 18-hole golf course in the Marsa Sports Club about 4km south of the capital, Valletta? Or simply relax by the pool, offered by many hotels on the island. If you’re looking for something a little more high-adrenaline then the countless water sport centres are waiting to take you scuba diving, windsurfing, water skiing or sailing.
