Malta, a small archipelago in the heart of the Mediterranean is home to glorious prehistoric temples, medieval dungeons, meandering countrysides, dreamy shores and a thriving nightlife. Malta is the largest island in the archipelago and has something to offer to all nature lovers, adventurers, artists, photographers, introverts and extroverts alike. All around, the Islands’ scenery and architecture provide a spectacular backdrop. The colours are striking, honey-coloured stone against the deepest of Mediterranean blues.
The countryside is every explorer’s dream, as it is dotted with wayside chapels, rare plants and indigenous species. The Maltese islands lie along one of the main European-African migration flyways, and one can spot a bird sometime. Malta has near year-round sun so whether its summer or winter, one can stroll by the sea and let their senses take in the fresh, salty breeze and the endless views of the blue waters.
Wherever you go, one can almost always smell the unmistakable aroma of the rustic local cuisine that seeps through the senses. From hearty meat dishes and specialty cheeses to tasty deserts of dates and almonds, the Maltese cuisine is an exotic blend of Mediterranean dishes. The island’s favourable climate makes the traditional cuisine seasonal, using local herbs and freshly grown fruits and vegetables for robust flavours. Mediterranean weather, attractive beaches, an all year-round nightlife, 7,000 years of intriguing history or a gastronomic delight; an adventure awaits on this tiny island!
