Choose Malta and get three Islands to explore
There are three Maltese Islands that you can actually set foot upon. Malta is the largest Island, followed by her Sister Island Gozo and the other is Comino. The three-island archipelago can trace its rooted history back to the debut of civilisation. The Islands over the years have been ruled by the Arabs, the Normans and the Aragonese.
Why choose Malta as your holiday destination?
Malta is a little Island that sits in the Mediterranean Sea, just 50 nautical miles South of Sicily. With 300 days of summer, rich in culture and crystal clear waters, Malta should be on your to do list.
Full of History
Proudly boasting 7,000 years of rich and fascinating history, where one can explore the ruins linked to the Romans, Moors, and Knights of Saint John (all of whom once ruled the island) The Mysterious temples from the Neolithic period, a shipwreck in 60 A.D. by St. Paul, hundreds of years of rule by the Knights of St. John, these are just a few of Malta’s past. The Phoenicians, Carthaginians, and Romans have also left their traces on the islands. Some of the oldest freestanding megalithic temples in the world are located in Malta and older than Stonehenge in the UK.
