Malta is a beautiful island on the Mediterranean, positioned between Sicily and North Africa.
We've had the chance to visit a couple of times and now promote this destination as one of our travel hot-spots, perfect all year.
Travel in Malta
Start your day at the Blue Grotto. You'll get the best light for taking photos, and can be first in line for an unmissable speedboat ride around the coastline.
At just €8 this is one of the best value experiences in Europe over the summer.
Alternatively the the City Sightseeing hop-on-hop-off tour has two routes that explore Malta, and this will give you a good idea of the key attractions - both new and old - that you might like to investigate further.
It's easy to assume Malta is only history, surrounded by a few sun drenched beaches, however, we found evidence of the best of contemporary experiences too.
Moving into the afternoon, you might like to visit Marsaxlokk, a picturesque fishing village that features a range of fresh seafood and pasta dining options along the waterfront.
For something livelier, head towards the seafront in Sliema and try one of the ocean-side bars for post-lunch discounts on delicious cocktails.
We loved The Compass Lounge for the service, view and chilled lounge beats playing all afternoon.
