Gozo is a Maltese island that specialises in a dramatic coastline, ancient history and clifftop views. And it’s only an hour’s ferry ride away from Malta.
Flight time from the UK to Malta is 3 hours and 15 minutes.
Malta benefits from almost perfect weather all year round. July through to September are the hottest months (think highs of around 30°C), while April through to June offers ideal temperatures to sightsee, with averages hovering in the early to mid-20s. The island’s less crowded then, too.
British citizens do not require a visa to visit Malta.
It is customary to tip between five and 15% in hotels and restaurants where service is not included. Taxi drivers will appreciate it if you round up the fare. Tip hotel porters one euro per bag.
The official languages of Malta are Maltese and English.
