Malta is a group of islands in the heart of the Mediterranean, just below Sicily (Italy). The three main islands are Malta, Gozo and Comino, which attract a large number of travellers each year, who often return to spend their holidays in Malta. Many toursists visit the island of Malta for its rich history and culture but the country is most famous for its sunny and warm weather. Malta holidays are popular among travellers from all over Europe who enjoy the beauty of the islands at very reasonable prices.
With the increasing number of cheap Malta flights being offered by low cost airlines, Malta is becoming an increasingly popular holiday destination and its accession to the EU in May 2004 has enabled Malta to step up the quality of holidays it can offer its guests. The Mediterranean’s best kept secret, as the country is often referred to, offers a completely refreshing view on island life, with plenty of resorts and beaches but moreover a welcoming and generally friendly population and an island literally stuffed with places of great cultural and historical value. Most Maltese speak English and getting around the islands is relatively easy, with public transport serving almost all parts of the islands and widely available car rentals.
