Holidays to Malta

Malta - historically popular!

The Knights of Malta, the Maltese Cross... the Maltese Falcon - just how much history, drama and cinematic greatness can you pack into one tiny speck in the middle of the Med?  Quite a bit as it turns out.

Malta's location, right in the heart of the Mediterranean crossroads, has made it a popular stopping off point for 'tourists' throughout history... the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Aragonese, Habsburg Spain, Knights of St John, French and the British have all pulled in for a spot of world domination and the Maltese are rightly sick of it. They rule themselves now, but they're happy for you to come and have a look at all those ancient monasteries, mosques, forts and castles that dot the sun kissed landscape.

English is widely spoken and the food is superb so Malta holidays are as easy as point, click and go. There are regular flights to Malta from most major ports in the UK, so there really is no excuse to not get a dose of history in the sun in beautiful Malta. Check out the choices on Holiday Supermarket now and go, go, go!

Why do we love Malta holidays? Because very few countries have such an eclectic concentration of history, fabulous buildings and architecture and sure-fire sunshine as Malta. (Add in some Italian-inspired cuisine and everybody's happy!)

The three islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino that make up the republic each have an individual flair that adds to the charm of this delightful Mediterranean hotspot.

Hints and tips for your Malta holiday


Eating out in Malta - cheap, expensive and everything in between

One exciting thing to remember about Malta is that it represents a cross pollination of so many cuisines because of its history. The food is largely Italian (Sicilian to be exact), and the entire country has those ubiquitous taverna style restaurants everywhere. Happily the bus system is very good, so if you've a mind to discover places away from your hotel area, go exploring and you'll be well rewarded food-wise.

The budget options - You might want to live peasant-style and have a picnic lunch of fresh bread with local cheese and the tastiest tomatoes, washed down with local fresh juices. It's divine and you can then lash out at dinner. Small bakeries and corner shops will sell you all you need. Other budget ideas: look out for pastizzi - a mini pastry filed with cheese or peas. (It's tastier than it sounds.)

Mid price options - it depends on where you're staying of course. Gourmet, gorgeous seafood in a cellar underneath Europe's oldest theatre. Delicious and good value at around 50 Euros for a three-course meal.

Splurge - too easy! De Mondian is the house restaurant in the grandly named Xara Palace Relais et Chateau Hotel, in Mdina. It is fine dining in a 17th century palazzo. Intricate dishes, exquisite flavours and a price to match.


Things not to miss

Malta - everything in the Med, rolled into one!

Because of its 'crossroads' aspect, Malta has seen it all in its oft-times turbulent history. The result is a country where all sorts of influences have melded into one, warm, delicious and scenically- marvellous melting pot. Prehistoric temples vie with Crusader forts, Italian cuisine vies with the Greek emphasis on freshness. And the beaches...

Valetta - a tiny city jam-packed with cafes and bars, restaurants and scenic vistas. Everything is within walking distance so you can stroll from massive fortified castle remnant to ye olde marketplace and back again in a morning.

Walk the promenade - at Sliema, St Julian’s & Paceville and eat, drink and party on where Malta's cool crowd gathers. The harbour front is where all the action is and Paceville lights up at night.

Vittoriosa  - the ancient city is simply magnificent. The historic waterfront is home to the Palace of the General of the Galleys and the Order of St John's treasury. At the centre of the Grand Harbour, the 16th-century fortification tower Fort St Angelo still guards the harbour.

Hypogeum - is a famous underground temple or tomb in Paola. It appears to be the oldest example of such a structure dating back to around 3600 BC. 

The must see - the delightful fishing village of Marsaxlokk on the south-eastern side of Malta tocks all the boxes; picturesque, fresh seafood off the boat that morning cooked as simply as possible that afternoon, and a panoply of boats gracing the harbour.
