Malta and Surroundings
Malta has one of the most varied histories in the world, with over 8000 years of rich history. Before it became a popular holiday destination, it used to be completely submerged underneath the water.
The Maltese islands were colonized between 800 and 700 BC by the Phoenicians who brought their Semitic language and culture. However, throughout the course of history the influence of the Romans, Arabs, Normans, Knights, French, and British Empire, has evolved the Maltese culture and independence which we can identify today.
Malta, where the official languages are Maltese and English, is home to some of the oldest temples in the world and 10 Official UNESCO World Heritage Sites which are worth visiting. The best way to get around the island is the public bus service which is inexpensive and efficient for private car hire and catamaran tours.
Best Things to Do in Malta
1) Dingli Cliffs
These cliffs are a long stretch (over 2km) of towering limestone cliffs on Malta’s southwest coast. This area is the highest point in Malta and offers amazing views over the Mediterranean Sea as well as many hiking trails. At the very top of these cliffs, along the ‘Triq Panoramika’ cliffside walking path, you will find St. Mary Magdalene Chapel and the Dingli Cliffs Window, to capture the breathtaking sunset.
2) The Seven Megalithic Temples of Malta
These Temples predate the Pyramids of Egypt! In ancient times these temples would have been used for sacrifices and as a place to make offerings it is difficult to imagine how these gigantic temples were man-made thousands of years ago. These temples were constructed using massive limestone blocks, some weighing more than 20 tonnes! Very little is known about these sites’ purpose but the intricate attention to detail suggests that these temples were once very important religious sites. These are the oldest and most precious historical sites on the Island that date all the way back to 3600 BC.
3) Golden Bay, Mellieħa
This bay is one of the most popular beaches in Malta to do water sports like kayaking or jet skiing. The cliffs above this bay are also famous for horse riding due to their breathtaking views of the beach and the Mediterranean Sea.
4) Mosta Rotunda
This church is dedicated to St. Mary and is furnished in the neo-classical style. Much of the inside of the church is decorated in gilt and the floors are paved with marble. Within this church, you can also find an impressive pipe organ within the dome with over 2,000 pipes. This building was designed and modeled after the Pantheon in Rome itself. It is the third largest unsupported dome in the whole world and well worth seeing in person.
5) Blue Grotto (Sea cave)
Located in the southern end of Malta and easily reached by boat, the Blue Grotto is one of the most beautiful natural caves on the island with clear blue water and plenty of marine life can be spotted. You can visit the cave for free from the fishing harbor called Wied iż-Żurrieq but the best way to experience the Blue Grotto is on a traditional colorful ‘Luzzu’ fishing boat, which departs from Wied iż-Żurrieq village and goes all the way through the Blue Grotto cave.
6) Upper and Lower Barrakka Gardens, Valletta
Close to Valletta, these gardens, not far from one another are known for their beautiful viewpoints where you can look out across the famous ‘Three Cities’ of Malta. The Lower Barrakka Gardens house is a picturesque temple that looks almost Roman in its design that features the Siege Bell Memorial that commemorates the Maltese army who fought in the Second World War. Within the Upper Gardens, you can find a collection of busts, statues, and plaques that denote various personalities and that recall s events in Maltese history.
7) St. John’s Co-Cathedral
This Baroque church is said to be one the prettiest churches in all of Europe with high praise. This church was built by the Knights of St. John in 1577 and its most significant feature is the marble tombstone floor which has 400 monuments that honor the knights. Within this Cathedral consisting of nine chapels, there are three-dimensional statues, carved stone walls, and an incredible vaulted ceiling decorated by the well-known Italian Baroque artist, Mattia Preti. It is also home to the most internationally recognized work by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, ‘The Beheading of St. John the Baptist (1608).
8) Popeye Village, Mellieħa
The Popeye Village, also known as ‘Sweethaven Village’ is in Anchor Bay. It is famous for being the film set of the famous 1980 musical ‘Popeye’ starring Robin Williams.

9) Grand Harbour, The Port of Valletta
The Grand Harbour is at the heart of Malta’s history, playing a crucial role during the Great Siege of 1565 and in the Second World War. These protected waters provide the chance to Hop into tiny striped Dghajsa (traditional water taxis) at Customs House, which allows you to explore the marvels of this historic harbor.

Inside this Palace, you can see the art and Renaissance architecture throughout the building as well as visit the Palace Armoury which exhibits weapons from the period of the Knights.
11) Ghar Dalam Cave and Museum, Birżebbuġa
One of the most prehistoric sites in Malta yet one of the lesser-known sites. The cave is made up of massive underground tunnels that contain the fossils of a range of extinct animals that date all the way back to the Ice Age. Evidence of human life in the caves stretches back 8000 years ago but even more surprisingly people still lived within these caves up until 1911.
