Things to do from your Malta villa

-Diving. Some of the best diving locations in Europe can be found in the waters around Malta and Gozo. What makes it so special is the clarity and calmness of the sea, with underwater caves, wrecks and reefs. One for experts only is Lantern Point, where there’s a tunnel some fifty metres below the surface.

-Outdoor activities. Above the surface you’ll find a good range of sports and other recreation to enjoy on holiday in Malta. There are stables for horseback riding, as well as some fantastic terrain for challenging walks and even climbing. Watersports abound as well, and you’ll be able to try your hand at activites as diverse as sea-kayaking, jet-skiing and windsurfing.

-Beaches. For a small destination there’s a wonderful variety of beaches to discover on the two main islands, as well as the smaller uninhabited islands of the archipelago. Golden Bay Beach, to the northwest on Malta is a highlight, with a large expanse of golden sand complemented by restaurants and refreshments stalls.

-Cultural heritage. Malta has three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which is remarkable considering the size on the country. Two, the Hypogeum of Hal-Saflieni, a prehistoric underground temple, and Valletta’s old town are set in the capital. There’s something interesting at every turn here, from the ancient town walls to the spectacular interior of the St john’s Co Cathedral.

-Gozo. Malta’s rural neighbour is home to picturesque rural landscapes, and also examples of the megalithic temples that have earned UNESCO World Heritage status. There are also impressive natural landmarks here, like the Azure Window, a perfectly formed natural arch on the west coast.
