Malta, Malta

Hundreds of years of history, a unique capital city, amazing underwater life and wonderful parties. This is Malta!

The scenic island of Malta, rich in history, lies south of Sicily. Traces of its past are still clearly visible in the multitude of palaces and churches, especially in the capital city of Valletta. This beautiful city with its 320 monuments within an area of just over half a square kilometre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Malta’s highlights include the Megalithic temples. These are the only ones in the world and are older than the pyramids of Egypt.

Book an affordable ticket to Malta

Malta has more to offer than its impressive monuments. During the day dive into the azure blue sea among coral reefs or explore sunken wrecks and underwater caves. Or do water sports such as windsurfing or wakeboarding, or snorkel in the tranquil bays. When the evening falls, Malta turns into a party island. The village of Paceville in particular is renowned for its parties. Are you looking for tips? Transavia has selected a number of sights on Malta just for you.
