Malta Holidays,  Malta Holiday Packages Overview

Malta has an incredible human legacy that can be still seen in its narrow streets, hilltop citadels, baroque churches and imposing temples. Equally impressive is Malta's natural beauty that offers a mix of rural landscapes, sparkling waters and limestone cliffs. The three islands of Comino, Gozo and Malta together offer good cuisine, beautiful coastal views, water sports and a lot of history.

The Mediterranean Sea can be seen from almost everywhere. The beaches of the island are beautiful with many breathtaking coves and spectacular diving sites. There are a number of dive sites with dramatic caves under the sea and sunken World War bombers.

Gozo and Malta also have a wealth of prehistoric sites that include the 5000 year old Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, an underground necropolis and many large temples located on top of sea cliffs. The capital of Malta is Valletta, a World Heritage Site with a very large number of beautiful historic buildings that are packed in the tiny space of the city.

Cottonera is the name that is used for three ancient and historic cities of Bormla, Isla and Birgu. The three towns are conglomerated by ancient fortifications and is the site of the Great Siege. Mdina, Malta's ancient capital is surrounded by the beautiful town of Rabat. The fortress is one of the finest in Malta with beautiful architecture and a lot of history.

Malta still has a very traditional way of life that can be seen in lesser known places like Southern Malta. Towns like Ghaxaq are often overlooked by visitors but are home to some of the best churches in Malta.
