2. It is an exotic island in the Mediterranean
Malta is a prime tourist destination and visitors soon discover why. The tiny exotic island in the Mediterranean deceivingly hides a wealth of interest and enjoyment for the visitor. The sea is sparkling (and perfect for diving), the coast is picturesque, the beaches are cosy and the weather is sweet. Historic walled cities and quaint village cores are still vibrant with tradition, while locals and visitors alike enjoy the easy good life that beautiful Malta and Gozo offer.
3. It is a cultural melting pot
Malta has been inhabited for at least 7,000 years and its location, less than 100 km south of Sicily, has often made it target of conquest. Malta may be an exciting new option for gay vacations, but visitors have been coming to these shores ever since transportation has existed. This melting pot of cultures has lead Malta to develop a rich and unique culture and language, and a history which is still evident to this day. Traditional local culture survives alongside contemporary cosmopolitan lifestyle in a harmonious diversity, making room also for the local gay scene. Discover the Top 10 Things to Do in Malta.
4. It prides itself of 7,000 years of history
From Megalithic temples older than Stonehenge to underground labyrinths of tombs, Malta’s prehistoric remains certainly deserve mention. Seven of these are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as is the entire 16th century capital city, Valletta, which is considered an open air museum. Actually, most of Malta’s towns and villages somehow contribute to its historic evidence, offering a tangible journey through time. The Grand Harbour, several museums and reenactment events are a delight even for those who are not usually turned on by history.
5. There is plenty of opportunity to have fun
