To seeTo see

There are all kinds of sights that you can admire in Malta and the nice thing is that all these places can be reached by public transport from Valletta.

Mdina

Mdina, Malta's old capital, is a typical medieval city lying at the heart of the island. The Silent City, as it is called, offers a fine view over the island. It is one of Europe's few remaining fortified Renaissance cities.

Wied iz-Zurrieq

Here you can go swimming, or visit the Blue Grotto and the surrounding coast by taking a trip in a daghjsa, a traditional Maltese fishing boat. The Blue Grotto is famous for the clarity of the water and the fine colours around the rocks in the caves.

Megalithic temples

The remains of dozens of temples, built in the fourth and third millennia BC, are unparalleled throughout the world. Stone idols, representations of animals cut in relief, stone temples, altars and screens decorated with spirals and other patterns enhance the attractions of these magnificent holy places.

Cottonera

Opposite the Grand Harbour, to the south of Valletta, you will find the historic fortified cities of Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea, commonly called the three cities of Cottonera.

Beach life

Swimming is lovely in Malta and Malta's beaches are generally safe. There are fine beaches both in the north and to the south of Malta, so there is always one within a few minutes' walk.

Mellieha Bay

This is Malta's largest and most popular sandy beach. Here there are no undercurrents so you can swim safely in the bay, and thanks to the shallow water it is an ideal place for children. There is a wide choice of amusements and sporting activities, from trips in a banana boat to hiring a pedalo. In addition, the bay is popular amongst windsurfers and water skiers.

Bugibba

Here the coast is rocky, but this does not detract from the area's magnetism. You can sunbathe on the flat rocks and there are opportunities all over for swimmers to reach the water. Although the water is deep, it is safe for swimming.

Golden Sands

This is a sandy bay and one of the finest of the Maltese islands. The area is excellent for walking. The bay is a fine spot for water sports such as windsurfing.
