A destination within everyone’s reach could be the Island of Malta. In fact Malta is favoured by the cheap flights that leave from all over Italy, it’s just a few hours flight away, the sea is the beautiful Mediterranean sea that we find also in Sicily and the prices are low.
The island of Malta was my second trip and I went there in a very hot August. I remember it very well because I had taken an apartment without checking the air conditioning. For this reason I suggest you to pay attention and evaluate it as a plus of your choice of accommodation.
The airport of arrival is in La Valetta, the capital, nice to visit during the day but the strong point of the island of Malta are the heavenly beaches.
I stayed in Saint Julian (Paceville) where there is a small bay with blue sea. The most youthful and lively area, with a street full of clubs and clubs.
On the other hand, if you are looking for relaxation and peace, you can find them along the Northeast coast and any point is quite quiet.
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT MALTA:
The island is a former English colony and the main language is English and the direction is right;
With a low travel time, Sicilians come to Malta during the day to sunbathe so you will hear a lot of Italian music in the bars;
The island also consists of two smaller islands, Gozo and Comino, which can be reached by ferry.
The public transport is absolutely slow because they run along the road along the coast and to make a few km it takes a really long time. Take this into account when travelling.
THE ISLAND OF MALTA
Surely you can spend half a day in La Valletta, the capital.
You can take a long walk and visit St. John’s Cathedral, cross the main streets of Republic Street and Merchant Street. Continue and visit the Upper Gardens of Barrakka and Lower Gardens, watching the Grand Master’s Palace and the armory.
But remember, costume and sunscreen because wonderful beaches await you.
THE BEACHES OF MALTA:
– Paradise Bay is located in the far north of Malta, near the ferries to Gozo. It is one of the smallest beaches in Malta but following a long flight of steps you will arrive in this bay with transparent water and ideal for snorkeling.
– Ghadira Bay is the largest sandy beach in Malta and is always located in the North. The water depth is shallow and is ideal for families with children.
– Golden Bay is located in the North and is one of the most popular beaches in Malta. From here you should see one of the most beautiful sunsets on the island.
The island of Gozo is an island North of the island of Malta, accessible by ferry. It is a very quiet island and its beaches are desolate and surrounded by nature.
When I went there to see the attraction of the island I had to cross it and get to the farthest point to admire the Blue Window, which I had told you about in the article Notre Dame: What do you teach? The Blue Window was a natural arch similar to a window overlooking the sea attraction of the island. I say it was because in March 2017 the arch collapsed and no longer exists because of a strong storm.
Comino is a small island between Malta and Gozo, which can be reached by ferry to the north of the island of Malta (where you also take the one to Gozo).
The island is famous for its marvellous Blue Lagoon characterized by a deep blue water. Be careful, however, because during the summer it is very crowded and you can visit the nearby bay of San Nicola with its white sand and crystal clear water.
Its beaches have been featured in several famous movies, and Blue Lagoon hosted Brad Pitt during the shooting of Troy.
