Many times we do not need to go to the other side of the world to enjoy a little paradise. An example is Malta, where the sun shines all year round. A perfect place to do different activities, from tourism to partying, to studying English or learning to dive. We tell you some of the activities you can do in Malta.
1. Learn to dive
As we anticipated, Malta is a perfect place to learn to dive. Its warm and clean waters allow you to discover what the bottom of the Mediterranean has in store. And the best thing is that you can do it at any time.
Most of the diving schools are located on the islands of Malta and Gozo. Best of all, they have quite affordable prices compared to other places. Whether you are an expert diver or if this is your first time, the waters of Malta are perfect.
The only problem will be deciding where to make your foray. And there are many interesting places that are worth discovering: the Blue Lagoon of Comino, Marsalform Beach, Ghar Lapsi …
2. Get to know Valletta, something you must do in Malta without excuses
Valletta is one of those unfairly little known capitals. It is certainly not because it does not have dozens of interesting places. In fact, its old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It is one of the densest places in the world from a cultural point of view, since within its wonderful wall it has more than 300 monuments. Don’t forget to discover the secrets of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem or that of the Knights of Malta. And get ready to walk and climb its many slopes.
3. Discover Marsaxlokk
Behind that difficult name lies one of the most special towns in Malta. It is a small fishing village of just over 3,000 inhabitants and a lot of charm.
But without a doubt, the most striking are the boats moored in its port. These are characterized by their bright colors and, above all, by the eyes on the bow. One of those different things you must do in Malta to fully enjoy its essence.
4. Visit Gozo
Malta is made up of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. Although you may not have time to visit them all, it is highly recommended (if not mandatory) to visit at least the two main ones. Therefore, spending at least one day in Gozo is necessary to complete your stay.
Do not miss the city of Victoria or the beautiful landscapes that the island can offer you. One of those that take your breath away is the Blue Window. Although the stone arch collapsed in 2017, the area is still impressive. Also, if you are a fan of Game of Thrones, it will sound familiar to you, because there Khaleesi and Khal Drogo got married.
5. Enjoy the sun and water
Although it is one of the best known islands in the Mediterranean, the truth is that Malta has few sandy beaches. Rocks or even natural pools carved by the sea itself are much more common.
One of the best areas is Sliema, where you can swim, relax and enjoy the atmosphere, especially at sunset. Another good option is St. Julian’s or Spinola Bay. All highly recommended.
If you still want to know a beach, the best beach is Bahía Mellieha, with fine sand, bars and tourists. In addition, you can practice some water sports or rent a motorized mat (it is something quite curious). You can even visit Popeye Village, a kind of very cinematic theme park, on the same day.
This is just a small list of all the things you can do in Malta. This is an archipelago where surprises await you almost in every corner. Do you write it down on your list of destinations?
