Known as the “Land of Honey”, the island country of Malta will spellbind you with its magnificent landscapes, fossil-peppered cliffs, historic sites and landmarks, endless sparkling sandy beaches, amazing dive spots, and interesting bee farms.
Located in the Mediterranean Sea, Malta has a rich history dating back to the beginning of civilization. It was ruled by a number of powerful nations until 1974, when it became a republic. The gateway to Malta and its surrounding islands, Malta International Airport is served by more than 20 airlines, mostly from Europe. It is just a few minutes from the city of Valletta, the capital of Malta.
If you are a history buff, the country will stupefy you with its ancient and historic sites not found anywhere else in the world. Although there are numerous attractions right in the heart of the city, you must take a trip to Xaghra located in Gozo Island, and be amazed by the Ġgantija Temples which dates back to 3600 BC to 3000 BC. The suburb of Paola is where you will find the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, a fascinating ancient underground necropolis with about 7000 bodies interred. Have some time off from visiting numerous ancient wonders, and hop on a water taxi to Comino Island where you can swim, snorkel or sunbathe at the Blue Lagoon. Visit a bee farm, and buy some pure Malta honey, a great gift for people back home.
Spend a few weeks in Malta and be captivated by its beauty and charm!
