Singles Holidays in Malta - crossroads of the Mediterranean
The tiny island of Malta is a fascinating melting pot of contrasts, a Mediterranean escape full of fun and cultural distractions. From the heavy North African and Arabic influences that can be heard in the local language, to the more Italian and Sicilian style cuisine, Malta boasts a varied history, ranging from pre-historic temples to baroque-style architecture. Malta packs glorious variety into its small archipelago. You'll find prehistoric temples, fossil-studded cliffs, hidden coves, thrilling scuba diving and a history of remarkable intensity.
Malta's geographical location in the centre of the Mediterranean makes it an alluring destination to visitors. Malta's landscape contrasts rocky stretches of coast that end in dizzying limestone cliffs with sheltered bays that hide gin-clear water and red-gold beaches. The islands' many marinas jostle with boats, and you can take to the water in sky-blue traditional craft, stately yachts or speedboats.
Malta is also the perfect destination to explore on foot, combining inland and coastal walks, offering us the opportunity to visit picturesque villages and enjoy rural vistas over its stunning coastline. Another of the many benefits of this small island is the chance to get around with ease, from visiting Valetta, with its colourful museums and theatres, to many beautiful coastal towns, such as Qawra.
Traditional Maltese food mixes Sicilian and Middle Eastern flavours, whilst making use of local ingredients such as rabbit and honey. The Maltese people are warm and welcoming: if you ask for directions, it's likely a local will walk with you to help you find the way. Plenty of 21st-century sophistication can be found, but there are also pockets where you feel you’ve gone back in time, especially on Gozo, where mammoth churches tower over quiet villages.
