Holidays to Malta
An island of breath-taking beauty, Malta holidays transport you to a land peppered with relics of the Knights Templar. The stunning Malta coastline is another attraction, from the enigmatic coves and inlets of tiny Comino, to the sweeping sands of Mellieha Bay. Today, people go there for the nightlife and diving sites too. Whatever your reason for booking Malta package holidays, at Co-operative Travel we have some fantastic deals to Malta’s most inspiring and spectacular locations.
When booking cheap Malta holidays for 2016/2017, remember Malta is not one island, but a republic consisting of many islands and islets, though only three are inhabited. The entire Maltese island collection is rich in history and culture, and many holidaymakers are looking at late deals in Malta’s neighbouring islands of Gozo and Comino, which are less developed. Gozo is home to the oldest standing temples in the world, while Comino is home to the famous Blue Lagoon.
Holidays to Malta are popular with all age groups, including party-loving singles. Some traditional resorts, for example Bugibba and St Johns, have expanded to entice a younger crowd, with world-class DJs and sophisticated nightclubs. St Julians, aka Paceville, has become the clubbing capital of the island, with Bugibba a close second. Elsewhere, however, the pace of life is more relaxed, appealing largely to the family market.
Any culture vultures should look for last minute Malta holidays near the capital of Valletta. Built by the Knights Hospitallier in the 1500s, it has everything from baroque palaces to the Ghost of Napoleon to entertain you. Older still are the prehistoric temples of Hagar Qim and Mnajdra, on the opposite side of the island.
Malta has a constant calendar of events, such as the International Fireworks Festival in May. Luckily, at Co-operative Travel we offer Malta package holidays throughout the year, in a wide range of villas, hotels and self-catering apartments. If you’re booking Malta holiday offers out of season then keep an eye out for celebrities, as the island has been used in many movies, most recently, Troy and Gladiator.
