Hi!! Actually I am a bee coming from Malta!! My country is a sunny island with nice beaches and loads of culture. One can visit historical places such as Mdina and Valletta or go clubbing in Paceville. If you are visiting in summer, be prepared for the hot weather, however you will not miss the village feasts where you can enjoy spectacular firework shows. Enjoy!

As somebody who’s grown up in Europe, I’ve definitely heard of Malta and would definitely like to visit it myself one day. 

I’ve had quite a few friends visit, and one couple actually honeymooned there, and they had nothing but praise for it, so I think you’ll love it.

If you don’t mind my asking, how much did they whole thing cost for someone from the US?

p.s. Why did you say ‘Malta Island’ when Malta is its own country?

I spent 4 days in Malta last year, and I wish I had spent four months.  I love that island; I went in the dead of February and it was warm and beautiful. There was so much I could have seen, and I definitely want to go back.  I loved everything about my trip.

@slicey19: Oh, ok. I thought you were going to Malta the country, not just Malta the island that’s part of Malta the country.

I don’t know why I got the impression that you were from the US. Yes, I expect that going from within Europe shouldn’t be too expensive.

Anyway, I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time. Don’t forget to post pics 🙂

I was quite dissapointed in it.  Hope you like it more than I did.  The pretty photos from there are seriously photoshopped.

Malta consists of 2 islands. I assume you’ll be visiting both.  The history is on one and the nature is on the other, they are a very short ferry ride away from each other.

I spent a summer in Malta (Valetta) when I was 15. It’s very pretty, the local festivals are really fun. Paceville is CRAZY (I think that was my first “clubbing” experience). I don’t think we ever saw a traditional type sandy beach, mostly big rocks that people swam off and man, that water was COLD! But we were 15 and not exactly terribly mobile, so we didn’t get to travel on a whim. Everyone spoke English. The buses were old school 60s buses painted bright yellow which was SO adorable. We took a boat over to Gozo which was beautiful, I’d highly recommend a little tour where you can get off and jump in the water and swim around a bit 🙂 It’s been 15 years since I was there, so I’m sure the island has been developed more since we were there.

@slicey19: The weather here is already quite warm. If you like sandy beaches, then you cannot miss Mellieha bay and Golden Bay. If you like rocky beaches, then make sure to visit Wied iz Zurrieq, where you can take a boat trip in order to see some spectacular scenes.

Malta is the actual country and it is composed of three islands, Malta (being the main one), Gozo, and Comino (uninhabited other than a hotel last I heard).  It is definitely a picturesque country (I’m of Maltese descent and have visited many times).

 

@Atalanta:  the “pretty photos” that are surely photoshopped.. are not. 

Here are some from my last trip in 2008 (this was at the end of December).  Unfortunately it was a really short trip (less than 4 days) so I didn’t get too many photos!
