With its crystal-clear Mediterranean waters, rich cultural history, and glamorous resorts, Malta entices luxury travelers seeking both relaxation and adventure. Laze on secluded beaches or sail to the Blue Lagoon on a private yacht charter. Explore baroque cathedrals and medieval fortresses in Valletta before raising a toast to the sunset from your suite. From Michelin-starred restaurants to diving among shipwrecks, Malta tempts with experiences ranging from indulgent to off-the-beaten-path.

Home to multiple historic sites leftover from countless periods of occupation including by the Romans, Moors, Knights of Saint John and British, Malta is a veritable treasure trove of fascinating moments of cultural discovery. Amongst the numerous fortresses and temples you’ll also find a vast and eclectic arts scene that continues to bloom further with each passing year. Malta is also home to some of Europe’s most delectable and innovative gastronomic culture, encompassing internationally-inspired restaurants and cafes serving a more traditional slice of Malta’s edible offerings.

As well as boasting a dazzling cultural heritage, Malta is also a year-round destination that claims an incredibly inclusive and welcoming society. Whilst the balmy summer months may be the most popular time to visit the white-sand fringed shores of stunning Malta, the milder temperatures of winter continue to offer a warmer experience than many other European destinations and visitors will be able to enjoy a quieter experience of Malta’s most popular tourist spots.

Travel Information

Malta’s tiny capital city Valletta is full of charm. It’s the smallest capital in the whole of Europe so you can make your way around it in less than a day. The city was built by the Knights of Malta after they successfully warded off an attack by the Ottomans. The Turks may have taken Byzantium and came close to the gates of Vienna, but tiny Malta held firm. Consequently, Malta still has a justifiably outsized sense of itself.

There are plenty of excellent hotels to choose from in Malta. It’s very much geared towards tourism. When you’re ready to explore you’ll have to see some of the cultural highlights, such as St Paul’s Catacombs and the Caravaggio paintings. The cultural wonders on offer are not limited to the narrow streets of Valletta however, and visitors will find a trove of fascinating sites and experiences across this unique archipelago. Gozo is the hub of tranquil relaxation in Malta and home to the greatest share of beaches and coastal environments.

One of the strangest, most exotic sites in Malta is Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum. Here you can see cave paintings that are even older than the pyramids. Once you’ve had your culture fix, you can head to Paceville and discover Malta’s nightlife.

Malta made history in 2016 by becoming the first European country to criminalize the harmful practice often dubbed ‘conversion therapy’. In this major step, Malta’s government reinforced its commitment to protecting the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. Same-sex couples can marry in Malta, and the country is currently ranked number one in the ILGA-Europe ranking.

One of the top destinations within Malta is its capital city Valletta, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. This fortified city offers visitors an opportunity to step back in time and experience Malta’s rich history through its Baroque palaces, grand churches, and museums. Walk the streets of Valletta at a leisurely pace taking in the stunning architecture or visit some of the city’s must-see museums such as St. John’s Co-Cathedral home to Caravaggio’s masterpiece – The Beheading Of St John.

Malta’s reputation for delicious food has been on the rise, and it’s no surprise with the island’s plethora of fresh seafood and locally grown produce. For an exquisite dining experience, look no further than one of Malta’s Michelin-starred restaurants. Among them are De Mondion, Noni, and Under Grain, all offering creative menus, top-notch service, and breathtaking views that ensure an unforgettable meal for their guests.

Malta is a small but incredibly diverse island nation, with breathtaking natural landscapes that offer something for every kind of adventurer. Explore the rugged cliffs and hills on a guided hike through the countryside, or rent a private jeep to embark on an off-road excursion.
