Malta, or the “Heart of the Mediterranean”, provides stunning scenery from every angle, so it should be no surprise that its rugged coves and fossil-studded cliffs have made it a favourite filming location amongst the Hollywood elite.
Malta’s history is one of violent warfare, and this brutal past is often reflected in the structures to be found throughout the islands. Fortresses and fortifications line the hills, and the cities often lie behind great walls. However, in contrast the largest of the Maltese islands is a land of gentle reserve.
Many of the island towns have a laid back café culture, while the capital of Valetta bustles with variety and excitement. Malta’s 7,000-year history remains evident in its megalithic temples, but if you crave an immersive experience of the country’s past during your accessible holiday, then look no further than the medieval walled town of Medina.
The north allows visitors to bask in its range of shops and places to eat and drink, as well as offering Malta’s most awe-inspiring surroundings. In contrast, the south is the place to head if you are craving soothing respite and boasts traditional fishing villages, delicious seafood and calm beaches to coax visitors into a state of blissful repose.
The cuisine in Malta is sea-based, and likely to have been fished from the Med on the very day you eat it. A smooth local wine will often be served with a dish of olives, while “bigilla” is a delicious broad been pate and hot “pastizzi”, a savoury ricotta-filled pastry, goes perfectly with coffee.
With warm weather lasting almost the whole year round, a stunning landscape and a plethora of historical and cultural riches, it should be no surprise that the number of tourists Malta annually draws is three times the island’s population.
