About Malta

The Maltese Archipelago lies virtually in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, some 93 km south of the Italian island of Sicily. Yet Malta is just a few hours' flying time from most mainland European cities and has excellent intercontinental connections. Travellers can choose between scheduled services or charter flights, many of which offer a convenient departure point from European regional cities. Furhtermore, visitors can choose from a wide range of hotels: from the ones situated in the heart of the busy towns in central Malta to the more isolated resorts in the north-western part of the island.

The national airline, Air Malta, operates flights to and from all the major airports in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

At just a couple of hours' flight from major European cities, the Islands are easily accessible for long weekend diving breaks as well. Sea temperatures average around 23ºC in summer and drop down to around 13ºC to 15ºC in December to March. The prospect of an active sun and sea sport holiday in the hotels of Malta is just as tempting in winter. At this time of year, you can see some wonderful species; fish such as the John Dory come closer to shore in winter

Sightseeing in Malta

In Malta, you'll explore 7000 years of history yet live passionately in the present. You'll span the millennia with an astonishing array of things to discover. And wherever you go, the Islands' scenery and architecture provide a spectacular backdrop. The colours are striking. Honey-coloured stone against the deepest of Mediterranean blues.

The Maltese Islands have been described as one big open-air museum. What makes them unique is that so much of their past is visible today. Delve into the Islands' mysterious prehistory, retrace the footsteps of St.Paul or see where the Knights of St John defended Christendom.

But Malta is no regular museum. Here life is lived to the full, so make time for some living history and action.

The three Islands that make up the Maltese Archipelago - Malta, the largest; Gozo, the mythical isle of Calypso; and tiny Comino, famous for its Blue Lagoon - form a very special diving site at the heart of the Mediterranean. The Islands offer excellent sport for both beginners and experienced open water and cave divers. With their natural harbours, bays, sheltered creeks, cliffs, reef and wrecks, the Islands invite you to explore. The possibilities are endless. With dive sites just a stone's throw away from each other, you will be able to explore a variety of underwater worlds.
