The island with endless opportunities
We know it's hard to visualise a place you haven't been to before, but we're about to make it easier. Here are 10 reasons you don't want to look past Malta on your next visit.
Old meets new
The history of the Islands of Malta spans over 7000 years to the Neolithic age. Given its strategic position in the heart of the Mediterranean, Malta has fallen to the rise of the Roman Empire and to imperial British forces, and has bravely resisted invasion by the Ottoman fleets in the 15th century. It’s rich history can still be revisited throughout the islands amongst which a modern side has developed to the Republic we know today.
300 days of sun
Looking to escape the cold? Malta is the perfect destination where you can benefit from over 300 days of sun per annum, so rest assured we know how to bring on the weather to make you feel better.
Surrounded by the Mediterranean sea, Malta is compassed by beaches, from the shallow, crystal blue waters of Paradise Bay, to the rocky, tranquil waters of Exiles, thus we have beaches to suit every desire.
Modern Hotels and Convention Centres
Given its prime location and its attractions, Malta boasts an array of international chain hotels such as Westin, Hilton, Intercontinental, Le Meridien, blended with local groups such as Corinthia, and Dolmen. These offer modern conferencing and event facilities to suit groups of all sizes and tastes. And if space is a concern, then look no further than the Mediterranean Conference Centre, Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre as well as the Intercontinental Hotel.
Although Maltese and English are the official languages of Malta, a myriad of languages are spoken on the islands due to the influx of international employees, so whether speak Italian or Spanish, French or German, Swedish or Finnish, etc.. you are bound to have access to native speakers of your nationality to assist with conferences and events.
It is important to know that you will always feel safe in Malta, whether you are alone, roaming the streets at all hours of the day or night, or in groups. And if you ever need assistance, just ask one of the friendly locals who would be more than happy to help.
Value for money
Malta offers a real bang for your buck. Eating out, accommodation rates, tours, etc… are still relatively economical compared to average European prices, so your euro will go further.
Tourism in Malta has exploded in recent times, namely due the increase of flight connections with the islands, which now boasts over 100 routes in operation during peak season, so you are bound to be closer than you think.
Linked inextricably to its history, the Maltese culture has evolved over time according to the occupation of numerous rulers from across the Mediterranean , while its language spans back to the age of the Phoenician empire, thus Semitic by foundation with a blend of Italian and French. The local population are known to be friendly and hospitable.
Whether it is a home cooked, traditional meal, or eating out at one of Malta’s many local and international cuisine restaurants, the islands boast a plethora of options to satisfy the fussiest of eaters. We recommend the traditional Maltese stewed rabbit (fenek), which is often identified as the national dish, or the imqaret for a sweet palate, which is a date filled pastry, fried to golden perfection.
