Small but perfectly formed, Malta packs a lot into its tiny islands. Beautiful beaches line the coast at Golden Bay, the perfect spot for a boat ride past the grottoes and cliffs that mark this north-western coast. Explore the atmospheric alleys of the capital Valletta and the winding medieval lanes of the former capital, Mdina. Take the ferry – or even a seaplane – to tranquil Gozo and go diving underneath the giant stone coastal arch known as the Azure Window. Spend a day on the miniature island of Comino, where the white sands of the Blue Lagoon lead to shimmering waters.

Malta’s chequered history provides a wealth of historic attractions to visit including Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, a subterranean UNESCO World Heritage Site, and medieval Mdina with a history dating back 4,000 years. Walk along the ramparts of Valletta and overlook the harbour where famous battles were fought, then visit the National Museum of Fine Arts. Take a boat trip to the tiny island of Comino and marvel at the Blue Lagoon, a truly picturesque spot. Parts of Malta were chosen as film locations for Troy, Gladiator, Alexander and The Da Vinci Code.

More peaceful and rural than its sister island, Gozo is home to unspoilt villages with ornate features. Victoria, the lively capital, has a striking citadel and the central square – It-Tokk or ‘the meeting place’ – is lined with pavement cafés. Explore its medieval alleyways with interesting architecture and tiny shops. Marsalforn’s waterfront bars are ideal for a relaxing drink. Dwejra’s coastline is a spectacular sight and here you can see the oldest salt pans on Gozo. Relax on the deep red sands of Ramla Bay, one of the island’s most striking beaches. Marvel at the mysterious Ggantija Temples that are even older than Egypt’s pyramids.

With warm, crystal-clear waters, the Maltese islands provide fantastic opportunities for diving. Discover exciting underwater scenery at a number of wreck sites including the wreck of the HMS Maori in Valletta. Gozo and Comino have some of the best dive sites such as the famous Azure Window or the Santa Maria Caves which teem with marine life. Take a boat through the cave tunnel at the Azure Window's Inland Sea, where the turquoise waters and vivid orange coral entice divers and snorkellers. Plunge 16m through the Blue Hole just in front of the Azure Window to the cave lurking by the seabed.
