Egg Mayonnaise, Ford Cortinas & Sunshine Review with images

AdvantagesBeautiful golden coloured architecture

DisadvantagesOvercrowded, built up and smelly

"Malta is by no means a pretty little Mediterranean island. It's incredibly built up, can be rather scruffy and is quite polluted. Vegetation is sparse on Malta - there are very few trees so it looks rather dusty and dry. But don't get me wrong, there are many spectacular looking buildings and beautiful sights scattered throughout the island. The blue of the sea set against the golden yellows of the sandstone buildings make for some picturesque settings. ..." Read review

Malta - a thorough review by IzzyS Review with images

AdvantagesPlenty of sights to see, some great views, no language problems

DisadvantagesThe driving by locals, it probably gets a bit too humid and hot by August

"- Introduction - This summer (2008) I went abroad on a summer holiday with my parents to the island of Malta and I have to say, it was definitely one of the better holidays ive had. I had never been there before and so I was quite eager to see the sights. We went for two weeks from late June (24th) to early July (8th) and I left feeling that there was still plenty left to see, that we didn't manage to fit in the two weeks we were there, so I would ..."

DisadvantagesBumpy roads!

"Knights! Sieges! Shipwrecks! Yes, Malta has seen all of these and you can find out more by reading this review or going on holiday to this lovely island situated between Africa and Europe, just off Sicily. *An Important Bit of History* (If History bores you feel free to skip to the next paragraph, but this does explain why Malta is the island it is, and trying to condense so much History is very difficult!) The name Malta according to one theory ..." Read review

Wish I was There! Malta, A Mediterranean island

AdvantagesFriendly, character island

DisadvantagesA bit smelly. Lacks sandy beaches, although many bays around the island

"Malta is a lovely, very friendly island in the Mediterranean sea. The weather is always clement. Even in winter it's mild. Malta is an ideal place to visit all year round due to it's temperate climate, but is especially enjoyable during the Spring, summer and Autumn. I have visited this island four times over some years, first as far back as 1975 then in the 1980's, and twice in the last decade. So I have been there as a young teen, one of a newly ..."
