There are the obvious popular sandy beaches as well as the rugged but no less beautiful rocky coasts. Gozo also has a number of unique spots and Comino’s Blue Lagoon is material for glossy brochures.
 
4. Gozo
 
Gozo is a smaller rural island to the north of Malta just a half-hour ferry ride away. It is a vivid glimpse into what Malta was up to a few decades ago. A slower pace of life, welcoming locals, open countryside, raw rugged coastlines, sleepy unconverted villages and traditional crafts. Gozo’s must-see attractions include the Citadella, Ggantija Temples, ta’ Pinu Sanctuary and the Dwejra area.
 
5. Country walks
 
Spring, autumn and most of winter offer the perfect climate to walk the contrasting and rich Maltese countryside. Gentle hillsides, dramatic cliffs, isolated seaside inlets and secluded pathways are begging to be explored. Coastal towers, wayside chapels, indigenous wild fauna along typical rubble walls and rugged garigue with sweeping coastal views are a gratifying way to explore Malta and Gozo.
 
6. Diving
 
Thanks to the ideal weather, diving in Malta is an all year round sport. The Mediterranean waters surrounding the Maltese islands are some of the cleanest and clearest seas you will ever see.

In an area of just over a square mile, it packs a day’s pleasurable walk complete with a charming little chapel, picturesque castle and dramatic cliffs, a four star hotel with self catering apartments and the incredible Blue Lagoon. The latter’s turquoise waters must be the best spot for swimming and snorkelling anywhere in the Mediterranean.
