Where To Stay
Places to stay in Malta. As a holiday island there are hundreds of reasonably priced seafront hotels and villas to choose from for you and your guests. If you prefer a more traditional option, consider a characteristic Maltese townhouse or an old converted farmhouse with swimming pool.
Bars & Restaurants
Eating out in Malta. With such a rich cultural heritage, Malta’s local cuisine is eclectic yet tantalisingly Mediterranean. The balmy climate and Maltese tradition for late night socialising make for fun-filled nights of outdoor dining and drinking in the countless bars and clubs around the island that cater for every age-group and tendency.
Getting About. It’s very easy to get around in Malta. All signs are in English and the transport system, though full of island character, is very well connected and generally timely. Nowhere is very far away so you can use the buses and ferries to see all the key sights of Malta, Gozo and Comino easily. If you prefer to venture off the beaten track, hire your own car or jeep and explore the archipelago’s many secret coves and less well-trodden treasures.
