Welcome to Malta

Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean located 60 miles south of the south-east tip of Sicily. The largest three islands Malta, Gozo and Comino are inhabited.

Much of the coastlines consist of steep cliffs indented by bays, inlets, and coves which provide good harbours. The landscape inland consists of low hills usually with terraced fields.

Northern Malta has a number of beach resorts and holiday areas. The capital Valletta is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Gozo and Comino, the country’s two smaller islands, are also popular for beach holidays, although the beaches tend to be rockier and better for snorkeling and diving.
