Holidays in the Maltese archipelago - idyllic island hideaways with sun in abundance!
Holidays in Malta - A little Mediterranean gem, Malta floats in crystal blue-green waters 60 miles south of Sicily and 200 miles from north Africa, looking for all the world like a pale honey-coloured rock in the middle of the ocean. The clear waters are perfect for underwater pursuits, with numerous reputable PADI diving centres located here. The island also boasts many wonderful historical sites, an entire village built for a 1980s production of Popeye and one of the finest natural harbours in the world.
Holidays in Gozo - The neighbouring island of Gozo (meaning joy) is a short 25 minute ferry ride away. A rural and tranquil haven, Malta's sister island is characterised by a more relaxed pace of life, breathtaking coastal scenery, untouched rural villages, authentic markets and rich local culture. The fortified citadel overlooking the capital Victoria is an everyday reminder of the islands tumultuous history, suffering at the hands of raiders for 1,000s of years. Off the beaten track, visitors can indulge in wine tasting, olive oil and fruit picking, sunbathing on red sandy beaches, swimming and diving in the turquoise bays and spectacular views from the majestic cliff tops.
