Beautiful golden coloured architecture

Overcrowded, 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...

- 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...

“Knights! Sieges! Shipwrecks!”

published 13/08/2005

Interesting island, something for everyone.

Bumpy 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...

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...

Easy to get around, beautiful sights

Not great for lying around and doing nothing!

My first experience with Malta was as a child and I had fond, if not a little vague, memories of it. It was with this in mind that I decided to take advantage of a cheap package deal to the small island in the Mediterranean. We only spent six days there and this isn't nearly enough time to visit...

To say I am qualified to review Malta is somewhat of an understatement...Im Maltese and lived there for a long time! To see detailed aspects of Malta see my other reviews in the Malta section (to be added very soon!) I will give both good and bad points: In general Malta is a place you will love...

“A week in Malta”

published 16/03/2007

Not too far

not seen any

Hi everyone, just back from a week's holiday in Malta. Well not exactly 'just!' By the time the review was written, three weeks gone already. We went during the February half term- all of us- our family of four. Like any other holiday destination- there is lot to see and do in Malta. I will tell...

“Zap those Mosquitoes”

published 18/05/2003

Fun, relaxing, inexpensive, friendly

Getting on the plane coming back

I went to Malta for the first time for 2 weeks in the summer of 1990. After that I went for 2 weeks every summer and 2 weeks twice at Christmas and the New Year until my last holiday there in 1996 – 8 times in all. It is the type of place that is said you either love or hate - obviously I...

"Why?" You rightly ask, should the Pope go there again. Therein lies the tale of the, (slightly), hair raising, Mini Bus excursion Driver, who told us, whilst driving along the only, very small, section of finished, metalled road that we had seen all day, "This was laid down especially for the...

Great Value holiday

Not many sandy beaches

I've been to Malta many times now, first just with my wife, then with our children too. Some people go back time after time, others go once and hate it. I think if you do Malta the right way, you'll love it. Malta isnt a big island, and there is a lot of new building going on. The capital...

Malta is a most fascinating place to visit. I, personally, have been there twice with my Father and his partner. Both times we stayed in hotels (once self-catering and once half board) and both times I absolutely loved it. The first time we went we stayed in the Europa Hotel on a half board basis...

As can be seen from the number and frequency of our visits, we are Maltaphiles. We love to get some sun in the worst part of the winter and Malta hits the spot every time. We stay at the Phoenicia just outside Valetta's city walls and love its 1930s faded luxury and impeccable service - another...

“Bugibba, Malta”

published 18/02/2001

Sun, heat and more heat

time goes quickly

The first thing to think of when going to Malta and flying out from London is, if you have had to wear a jumper or raincoat to reach the airport put it in your holdall before you leave the plane as as soon as those airplane doors open on reaching Malta, even if in the middle of the night, the...

“The gem of the Med”

published 19/08/2007

Friendly welcoming people, plenty to do

The annoying crickets and bad driving

Where do I start? I have visited Malta about 8 times and I could never tire of it. I wouldn't say its a typical place to visit for a group of lads or ladies - it is more your family or couples holiday. Travelling There and Getting Around The flight from London to Luqa Airport (Malta) is around 3...
