The archipelago Malta lies only 95 km in the south of Sicily in the heart of the Mediterranean and offers together with its little sister island Gozo and Comino a big variety of activities for a perfect holiday. In less than three flight hours you will find yourself surrounded by the hearty hospitality of the Maltese, warm Mediterranean lifestyle and 300 days of sun a year as well as a 7000 year old history and its unique cultural background. Communication should not be a problem here. Malta was British colony until 1964 and English is the second official language of the island. This converts Malta also in an interesting destination for people who want to learn English.
If you are fond of culture you are also in the right place. Malta is the home of numerous UNESCO World Cultural Heritages. The most famous are the prehistoric megalith temple, the underground temple complex “Hypogäum” and Valleta, its baroque influenced capital, which was built by the knights of St. John’s.
If you love sports you will love Malta. It is the perfect spot to dive, hike, climb, bike, sail, surf or paddle surf. Thanks to its mild temperatures you can practice sports almost all year long.
In Malta you can also enjoy a great offer of different events – musical, cultural or sports. You should not miss one of its famous “Festas” which are celebrated between May and September. The Maltese celebrate their saints with colorful processions accompanied by brass band music and fascinating fireworks.
Only half an hour away you can visit the little sister island Gozo by ferry. It is also known as “the green island” thanks to its lavish nature, which is a contrast to the main island Malta.
Gozo is a real insider tip and has a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere where you can spend some special days and forget about the outer world – stay in one of the typical farm houses that have been reformed and now offer luxurious housing or stay in one of the hotels of the island.
