Malta's dramatic capital city is small but stunning. It's brimming with historical sites, such as St. John’s Co-Cathedral and the awe-inspiring Grand Master’s Palace. Its compact size makes it ideal for explorational walks, whilst the bustling nightlife caters to those looking for some evening energy.

Known for its shopping, dining, and seaside promenade, Sliema is popular for its urban appeal and ferry link to Valletta.

Where to Stay

For a holiday with friends: St. Julian's

Busy St. Julian's buzzes with nightclubs and bars, making it the go-to spot for those seeking a lively holiday. By day, your group can soak up the sun at St. George's Bay beach.

When to Visit

Malta boasts warm temperatures year-round, making it a wonderful escape any season you wish. For sun-drenched beach holidays, the summer months of June to August are popular, however, the island can be quite crowded. To enjoy pleasant weather with fewer tourists, consider visiting during late spring (April to June) or early autumn (September to November). These periods offer the perfect balance of sunshine and serenity. Winter months can be mild and a bit wet, though it's an excellent period for budget travellers and those wishing to explore Malta’s historic sites and landscapes minus the tourist throngs.
