Land of Honey
Aside from the crystal azure waters and the soft sandy beaches in Malta, there is more ancient, medieval, and Baroque architecture here than most visitors have time for. Whether you are looking for a relaxing vacation spent people-watching and sun-bathing or a history lesson filled with fortified cities and catacombs, Malta lets you hop from island to island with a plethora of options. And with so much coastline wherever you are in Malta, opportunities for water sports abound, including snorkeling and diving. Despite the thriving tourism, many areas feel uncrowded due to lack of residency, leaving you space to enjoy the sun and sea at your own pace.

Isle of Calypso
The tiny island of Gozo, often called "Malta's little sister," sits in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea and lures visitors with its unspoiled natural scenery. Located less than 100 km (60 mi) south of Sicily, the rugged island remains one of Europe's most remote and least developed tourist destinations. Despite this, Gozo draws big crowds with its countryside filled with old churches, historical fortifications, and megalithic archaeological sites. Ideal for taking a relaxing break from the Mediterranean's overcrowded vacation destinations, Gozo allows you to explore its cultural heritage and natural charms at your own pace. Start at Victoria, the island's largest city, known for its ancient citadel, museums, and churches.
