Luxury Malta Holidays

Sun-soaked history

Malta

Holidays in Malta take you to one of the most beautiful archipelagos in the Mediterranean. This is a place of stone and water, where cacti climb the hills and traditional blue and yellow fishing boats ply their trade. You’ll notice a range of influences in the food and local architecture across the three Maltese islands. Countless empires from across Europe, Asia and Africa have ruled here. The British were the most recent, so you’ll see iconic red postboxes dotting the streets.

Couples can stroll along the coast, explore hilly interiors or enjoy the relaxed towns. On the east side of the island of Malta is the vibrant town of St Julians, which offers some great opportunities for diving and sailing. Meanwhile the capital, Valletta, was formerly the base of the Knights of St John and is home to some of the world’s most beautiful churches.

Holidays in Malta offer a paradise for walkers and swimmers. On the pretty island of Gozo, to the north of Malta, you can ramble along clifftops, through verdant herb scented fields and down to the rocky shoreline. The sun dappled streets of Victoria are a wonderful place to while away the hours in a cozy café. 

Luxury holidays in Malta

Luxury holidays in Malta offer the chance to lose yourself in a fascinating island culture. In the streets of Valletta you’ll find ancient shops trading in silver filigree, coloured glass and door knockers - the latter making a perfect gift for friends and family back home. The food is exceptional, with cuisines from around the world available. You can’t go wrong with traditional Maltese favourites like stuffat tal fenek (rabbit stew) and torta tal-lumpuki (fish pie).
