Why should you visit Malta?
Malta is the most unusual island of the Mediterranean. Malta’s true cultural diversity is what makes it charming and proves its authenticity which is not found anywhere else. Malta has a different lifestyle, a unique culture and a cosy local atmosphere!
Here are 5 reasons to choose Malta as your travel destination:
Malta is the paradise of old stones. This is of course what is most immediately visible and what adds to the grandeur of Malta. At the heart of the capital Valletta, every stone tells us where it comes from. This heritage comes mainly from prehistory and the time of the Order of the Knights of St. John. Within the archipelago there are 365 churches and chapels, so you can visit one a day for a year! On the island of Gozo (the northernmost island of the Maltese archipelago) are the Ġantija Temples which are the oldest monuments erected in the world. They are real architectural treasures to discover!
Malta is also the ideal place to learn to speak English, although the Maltese language is still present. You can enjoy an inexpensive summer school and sun. Learn English in Malta to ensure quality learning without being on the other side of the world!
Its culinary culture
The Maltese and Mediterranean cuisine is mainly influenced by the nearby Sicily. The typical island cuisine will delight you with its fresh products. In restaurants, they serve a lot of pasta, pizza and pastries with sugar and almonds. The British influence is also felt in roast meats, grilled and sauces. And, of course, the sea brings a lot of fish and seafood. Finally, do not leave the island without tasting rabbit sauce (fenkata), the ultra-typical dish of Malta.
Malta is also a paradise for water sports. Embark on a boat, and navigate to the turquoise lagoons that litter the coast. The island of Comino and the Blue Lagoon, is an idyllic place to snorkel. To enjoy the beaches, go to the North of Malta and for those who do not feel in the mood to stay on a sunbed, it will also be nice to go for a ride along the creeks, do windsurfing or water-skiing.
