Malta

Malta: periwinkle water, stunning red-gold beaches and four islands (including Gozo) to explore, not to mention a balmy climate and very little rainfall throughout the year. That all equates to the ultimate fly-and-flop destination, with bright sunshine likely even in winter.

It’s not all about sun, sea and sand though. The archipelago is packed with significant attractions that tell the story of its 7,000-year history, alongside a varied and exciting calendar of events and local festivals. It’s home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, one of which is a temple that’s 1,000 years older than the Egyptian Pyramids. And its Lilliputian capital Valletta has been named European Capital of Culture 2018, in recognition of the sheer number of historic sites within its formidable city walls.

We’ve hand-picked a collection of the best deals for this diverse destination, including an all-inclusive escape, a luxurious Radisson holiday and a short break on Malta’s north coast.
