Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso’s Cave – The Maltese Islands are positively mythical.
The Maltese archipelago lies virtually at the centre of the Mediterranean, with Malta 93km south of Sicily and 288km north of Africa. The archipelago consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino with a total population of 440,000 inhabitants over an area of 316sq km and a coastline of 196.8km, not including 56.01 km for the island of Gozo.
Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative center. Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural, characterized by fishing, tourism, crafts and agriculture while Comino is largely uninhabited.
The long relationship between the Islanders and the various nationalities that occupied Malta over the centuries has created a marriage of styles and traditions, giving the Islands a fascinating eclectic culture.
With superbly sunny weather, expansive beaches, a thriving nightlife and 7,000 years of intriguing history, there is a great deal to see and do. With a little help from any guidebook, captivating places of interest are immediately identified – the world famous Hypogeum selected as a place of World Heritage by UNESCO, prehistoric temples and grand palaces are but a few.

Boasting over 150 miles (250 km) of stunning coastline and a glorious Mediterranean climate, Malta’s beaches are some of the best in Europe. Lively resorts give way to secluded coves and craggy inlets.
