If you're looking for a mix of Mediterranean sunshine and a laid-back vibe, Malta's little brother Gozo, could be the ideal holiday destination for you. Much quieter and greener than its bigger neighbour, holidays in Gozo mean that everything you could need can be found within a small area. This includes the town of Xaghra whose Neolithic temple is, at 5,600 years old, the oldest free-standing building in the world. Gozitans are especially proud of their local fish and seafood-based cuisine, which is delicate and delightful.
From the moment you cast eyes on its wide, sweeping beach lapped by calm, clear waters, you'll realise why Mellieha is the top choice for families who love just chilling out and relaxing. Mellieha is the quieter cousin to the neighbouring resort of Bugibba, and the main attraction – apart from the coastline – is the gorgeous nature reserve which lies behind the sandy beaches.
Qawra is a laid-back resort that caters for families and couples, yet still offers the island's beaches close at hand. The quieter and more upmarket ambience is what makes a holiday in Qawra so popular with families, and while the resort has a good crop of shops selling anything from locally-made souvenirs right up to designer clothes, there are more mainstream stores – along with a much wider variety of entertainment – on offer in Bugibba.
The vibrant town of St Julian’s provides visitors with everything from authentic Maltese dining while looking out across the water in Spinola Bay, to a lively party-packed nightlife in Paceville. St Julian’s is also blessed with one of Malta’s few sandy Blue Flag beaches, which unsurprisingly bustles with activity and people enjoying the warm weather. A St Julian’s holiday offers the perfect combination of glamour and traditional charm.
Valletta packs a lot into a little space. At just over a mile across it's one of the world's smallest capital cities, yet it encapsulates the entire history of Malta. If you choose to take a Valletta All Inclusive holiday you're sure to be drawn to the picturesque waterfront, where you’ll find many shops, bars, and restaurants, all offering a wonderful view of Fort St Angelo which lies in the middle of the Grand Harbour.
If you're looking for a sun-kissed holiday in an English-speaking area where you'll have lots to do during the day and night, Bugibba has got all this to offer and more. A modern resort nestling in St Paul's Bay in the northern part of the island, Bugibba is bustling by day and buzzing by night, meaning you'll never be short of ideas for what to do. The bubbly resort also boasts a cinema, bingo hall, and casino, as well as access to Valletta.
