Malta is an island in the center of the Mediterranean filled with fortresses, temples and an iconic history with a fascinating story.
With English being the second official language its makes Malta a very easy country to navigate around and for the naive among us who don’t speak another language it can be a great place for a holiday.
Because of Malta’s location there is no surprise that it is an all year round destination. Of course the summer months are hotter than the winter months but it is still pleasant to visit all year round.
The accommodation options are also vast and inexpensive as the island is so small it is easy to get around on public transport and so you can book a hotel almost anywhere. You can stay in a big resort for a budget price.
Being an island the coast line has many beautiful beaches and dramatic cliff sides that are beautiful to explore.
