Most Proud

Malta's capital city, Valletta preserves most of its medieval architecture, built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Knights Hospitaller, once a powerful military order.
Mdina Old City and Saluting Battery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from the city and head to Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja) and Scuba & Snorkeling. Step out of Valletta to go to Mellieha and see Mellieha Beach, which is approximately 44 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at Fort St Elmo - National War Museum, delve into the distant past at Mnajdra, examine the collection at Malta Postal Museum, and steep yourself in history at Lascaris War Rooms.

Land of Honey
Aside from the crystal azure waters and the soft sandy beaches in Malta, there is more ancient, medieval, and Baroque architecture here than most visitors have time for. Whether you are looking for a relaxing vacation spent people-watching and sun-bathing or a history lesson filled with fortified cities and catacombs, Malta lets you hop from island to island with a plethora of options. And with so much coastline wherever you are in Malta, opportunities for water sports abound, including snorkeling and diving. Despite the thriving tourism, many areas feel uncrowded due to lack of residency, leaving you space to enjoy the sun and sea at your own pace.
