Malta

Malta boasts of over 300 days of sun per year, it’s easy to understand why people just keep coming back.

I went to Malta as it was one of the destinations that had minimal restrictions for double-vaxxed travellers. Now, Malta may be small, but it isn’t short on things to do and places to go. 

Keep reading to find out more…

Things to do:

  • Go to Bugibba and enjoy the sunshine on the beach
  • Take a stroll through the sleepy harbour town of Valletta 
  • OR if you’re tying to turn up – Sliema and St Paul’s Bay are top choices. I was pleasantly surprised by all the options of things to do. 

With so much to do in Malta, I understand why people keep coming back for more, year after year.

Food: I’m never expecting to be impressed by food in European countries (sorry) but Malta has changed that. Malta is a whole island of cuisine, and being an island, it’s no surprise that fish is at the centre of its culinary delights. 

Trippin Tip: Rabbit is also considered a delicacy in Malta, so expect to find pie, stews and rabbit steak on most menus.

Some history: Malta is known for its military history predominantly and has several war museums depicting its part in both World Wars. The history of Malta goes back far further than that though. There are prehistoric temples that date back thousands of years, or simply wander around Valletta and immerse yourself in wall to wall history mixed with shopping and culture; a perfect example of Malta embracing past meeting present.

If you’re looking to explore Malta’s own corner of paradise, take a boat trip to Gozo, where you’ll find blue waters, lagoons and beaches as far as the eye can see. Gozo is perhaps most famous for being the location where much of Game of Thrones was filmed. A great fact to boast to friends and family on your return!

The boring stuff: I took my C**** test at Browns pharmacy. It was €35 (at time of print).

Getting around: 

  • hire car (fair bit of traffic and difficult to find parking)
  • Bus (tallinja) 
  • Bolt (heymalta dc)
  • Bolt scooter 🛴 

Eat: 

  • Ocean basket 
  • Cafe del mar 
  • Leglin 
  • Great wall restaurant 
  • MedAsia
  • Hugo’s
