Are you travelling to Malta and looking for scenic spots to share with your social media followers and friends? Whether you’re a full-time instagrammer or simply a keen photographer, today’s blog will help you plan your itinerary and capture incredible pictures of your trip to our islands.
1. Wied il-Ghasri
Wied il-Għasri in Gozo (the Ghasri Valley), is a marvellous place for a country walks or bike ride, especially in winter and spring. The valley begins at Ta’ Dbieġi Hill before winding down through the village of l-Għasri, and on between iż-Żebbuġ and Ta’ Ġurdan Hill to meet the sea between impressive cliffs. Wied il-Għasri is very popular with divers who like to explore the surrounding underwater caves. It is also very popular with instagrammers due to its striking, winding formation.
Only 3.5 square kilometres, Comino is car-free and apart from one hotel, is virtually uninhabited. The island’s main attraction is the Blue Lagoon. In summer, this sheltered inlet of shimmering aquamarine water over white sand is very popular with day-trippers. However Blue Lagoon is not the only instragrammable spot, as the island is full of other views and beaches (both sandy and rocky) to explore, not to mention a 17th century watch tower and an 18th century battery.
The Capital City of Valletta, located a stone’s throw away from The Phoenicia Malta, is full of photogenic spots. Whether it’s the narrow streets overlooking the Grand Harbour, the old buildings, the traditional balconies, or even the old shop signs. Wherever you look, there’s a story to tell and a photo to take. Your only problem will be choosing the one that will make it to Instagram!
4. Coral Lagoon
For the drone aficionados, Coral Lagoon is the ideal spot from some outstanding shots thanks to its stunning scenery and amazing views. The Coral Lagoon is a naturally formed cave near Armier Bay in Mellieha. It’s a little off the beaten track but well worth the effort. The water at the Coral Lagoon is crystal clear, making it popular with divers and snorkelers who explore the underwater caves.
Mdina makes our list yet again! And can you blame us? The city gate itself is extremely striking, however that is not all. The narrow windings streets, the magnificent palazzos and colourful bougainvillea adorning their grand doors, the lovely piazzas, and the breath-taking views from the bastions, all make for impressive photos. You will be spoilt for choice!
6. The Bastion Pool
The bastion pool at The Phoenicia Malta is as stunning a pool can get. As the name implies, it is located right by Valletta’s imposing 16th century bastion walls. Overlooking Marsamxett harbour, this infinity pool is where old meets new. It is where one can enjoy a sunset cocktail in peace and quiet, or a scrumptious lunch or dinner during the summer months. It is the epitome of luxury and an instragrammer’s playground.
