As the scene of two of the most epic sieges the world has known, the Grand Harbour is a place that has helped change the course of history. See Fort Ricasoli, the silver-domed Kalkara church and Fort St Angelo. In Marsamxett Harbour, the palaces of Ta' Xbiex, Msida church and Fort St Elmo are among the many treasures you'll see. You'll also catch a glimpse of the townhouses that line the creeks - the contrast between the beige limestone architecture and the blue water is one of the defining images of Malta.

Things to do in Malta

More than 300 days of sunshine a year, secluded coves, Baroque basilicas and historic temples – you could say Malta has quite a few strings to its bow. The island is situated between Sicily and North Africa, which means Malta is considered by many to be one of the best diving and snorkelling destinations in the Mediterranean. Apart from sunbathing and swimming, you can also soak up the culture. Valletta and Mdina are two fascinating cities that trace their origins to the age of chivalry. Whether you like history, nature or good food, there is something for everyone in Malta. Top six things to do in Malta 1. Visit the Blue Grotto When you think of Malta, the famous Blue Grotto instantly springs to mind. This large sea cave is located close to Zurrieq in the south of the island. Due to the shape and location of the grotto, the morning sun creates a shimmering reflection on the water in brilliant shades of blue. It’s a popular attraction, so if you’re planning an excursion to the Blue Grotto, make sure to book early. The view from the top of the rocks is also worthwhile. 2. Explore Valletta, Mosta and Mdina Combining culture, heritage and unique locations, Valletta, Mosta and Mdina are three of Malta’s most beautiful cities. Valletta, the capital, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in its entirety, and is home to impressive bastions, fortifications and a cathedral with an eye-catching dome. In car-free Mdina, you’ll enjoy the peace and quiet and views over the countryside from its star-shaped city walls. And in Mosta, you can’t miss the vast domed basilica, which survived three bombing raids during the Second World War. 3. Catch a boat to Gozo Just 25 minutes away from the island by boat, Gozo is Malta’s greener and more laidback little sibling. Its capital, Victoria, has an impressive citadel, while the Church of St George is also worth a visit. The countryside Basilica of Ta' Pinu is also a must-see. The island is small, so you could see everything on a daytrip to Gozo. And if you have time to spare, enjoy some time by the sea at Rambla Bay. 4. See the picturesque Marsaxlokk Marsaxlokk is an authentic fishing village in the south of Malta. The colourful fishing boats anchored in the water make for a picturesque scene, and the market on Sunday mornings completes the traditional experience. Fish lovers are sure to be in for a treat here when it comes to mealtimes, too. 5. Enjoy a day at Marine Park One of the most fun attractions for the whole family is Marine Park. It’s a great opportunity to interact and understand more about dolphins, sea lions, reptiles and parrots. You can even become an animal carer for a day as you help the park rangers feed and check up on the animals. You will also find a children’s playground, restaurant, souvenir shop and an educational classroom within the grounds. 6. Discover the Megalithic temples By far Malta’s oldest attractions are its Megalithic temples. With many dating back more than 4,500 years, they’re among the oldest surviving temples from that period anywhere in the world. The limestone temple complex of Hagar Qim, in the south of Malta, and the temples of Tarxien in the east are not to be missed by history buffs.
