As Valentine’s Day approaches, today’s blog will outline 5 romantic experiences that the team here at The Phoenicia Malta believe will help you impress your Valentine. There experiences can be enjoyed at any time of the day, and across different parts of the island.

1. Grand Harbour Cruise

Take a relaxing cruise around Malta’s majestic, historic and natural harbours aboard a ‘dgħajsa tal-pass’, a traditional water taxi. Admire the imposing bastions of the fortified cities of Valletta and The Three Cities, the skyline of their baroque churches and the activity around this impressive harbour. Sip on a glass of bubbly as the sea breeze caresses your face and enjoy the moment with your special someone.  

2. Horse riding at sunset

There are a number of places where you can enjoy this activity, especially in the Northern part of the island. Book your experience around Ghajn Tuffieha Bay and enjoy one of the most picturesque parts of the Maltese Islands in the peace and tranquillity on Horseback. Unwind during a romantic sunset ride which takes you along the Coast and Golden Cliffs of Malta overlooking Gozo and the panoramic scenes of the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea.

3. Take a stroll around Mdina

Malta’s old capital city, Mdina, is as romantic as a city can get. Marvel at the centuries-old buildings and fortifications, the cobbled streets, and the stunning views. Admire the beautiful palazzos, coloured doors and Maltese doorknobs. Stop for an ice-cream or a coffee and enjoy the serenity that comes with a place known as the ‘Silent City’.

4. Star gazing at Dingli Cliffs

The St. Magdalene chapel at Dingli Cliffs is one of the most popular areas in Malta for star gazing. You won’t mind a few lights twinkling from the boats at sea far below and the warm glow from the nearby villages, as you’re sure to enjoy a stunning night sky on a clear night. Take a perch beneath the bright Milky Way, pop a cork and soak up the tranquillity with your loved one.
