Malta is an island, so it’s only natural that there are plenty of beaches to enjoy. Golden Sands Beach is one of the most popular spots on the island. It’s well-known for its clear water and golden sand.!

Savour Some Local Cuisine

Malta’s cuisine is a unique blend of Mediterranean and Arab influences. One of the most popular local dishes is ‘fenek’, which is rabbit stewed in wine and garlic. Other Maltese specialities include pastizzi (flaky pastry filled with ricotta or peas), lampuki pie (a fish pie made with lampuki, a type of dolphin fish), and imqaret (deep-fried sweet pastry with a date filling).

Take a Scenic Hike

Malta is home to some stunning natural scenery. If you love hiking, make sure to add a hike to your itinerary. One of the most popular trails is the Dingli Cliffs Walk. This trail takes you along the coast, offering breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea. Another great option is the Mdina to Rabat Hike, which takes you through two of Malta’s historic towns.

Dive beneath the seas at the HMS Maori

The HMS Maori was a British Royal Navy ship that was sunk in World War II. Today, it’s one of Malta’s most popular diving sites. The shipwreck is located in the shallow waters off the coast of Sliema. Divers of all levels can explore the wreck, which is home to a variety of marine life.

If you’re not a certified diver, you can still enjoy the wreck by taking a glass-bottom boat tour.

Take a Boat Tour

Malta is an island, so what better way to see it than by boat? Plenty of boat tours are available, ranging from short sightseeing trips to longer excursions. Whether you want to relax on the deck or swim in the clear blue water, a boat tour is a great way to spend your day.
