Malta

Malta

Malta boasts 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, and who are we to doubt that. It’s not just the sun which attracts people year after year, but it’s interesting a varied history, on a small island in the middle of the Med.

In fact, Malta has over 7,000 years of history and is completely unique having been home to the Phoenicians, Romans, Knights of St John, Napoleon and the British Empire. There are hallmarks from all those eras stamped in modern-day Malta – noticeable on the public transport with the country adopting our unloved London bendy-busses.

It’s no surprise then, when it claims three UNESCO World Heritage sites on the island, the city of Valletta, the Hal-Saflieni Hypogeum and the seven magnificent Megalithic Temples. There’s great food, some lovely beaches and some fantastic hotels as well!
