Time to unwind on Malta holidays
Malta offers great scenery, great food and great resorts to satisfy the perfect relaxing holiday, whether as a family or a couple looking to escape from it all.
Offering something a little different, Malta is a great place to visit if you want to get away from the busier Mediterranean resorts. With a slower pace of life, idyllic villages, unique history and beautiful beachside destinations – Malta gives the perfect balance of a home-from-home family holiday destination to the perfect couples retreat.
With flight times from Ireland around 3.5 hours – you could be relaxing on the beach sooner than you might think.
Holidays to Malta offer so much
For the perfect Maltese beach holiday head out to Mellieha Bay - the largest beach resort in Malta, which makes it the perfect spot to pitch a sun-umbrella and let the kids enjoy themselves in the surf. With dependably warm temperatures and crystal waters, couples can easily while away the day soaking up the sun here and as an added bonus the food at many of these resorts really will make your mouth water.
Couples or families with older children are sure to find the resort of Sliema a must – with its more cosmopolitan atmosphere, shops, restaurants and café-culture – you can spend a whole evening wining and dining in the mild evenings. For couples, there is also lively nightlife and intimate restaurants serving the freshest food.
For a bit of excitement and adventure however, take to the water. From boat rides to remote caves to water sports, you are sure to keep everyone occupied. If you’re looking to learn a bit about the culture, head to one of the many towns or the Capital – Valetta. Palaces, museums, theatres and galleries are to be found throughout Malta and mean that there really is something for everyone.
