About Malta

The Maltese islands offer a rich culture and abundant history, they’re also sprinkled with the right amount of sunshine, sandy beaches, and glistening seas!

Situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, the Maltese cluster is 93km south of Sicily and 288km north of Africa – Malta’s strategic geographic location makes the island an ideal spot for travel in and out of Europe too. Made up of 3 main islands, the Maltese archipelago provides living opportunities on Malta (316 km²) and Gozo (67 km²) while Comino (3.5 km²) is frequented by all for its tranquility and a blissful escape.

Malta is the mainland where the local business centres, universities, and larger hospitals are situated in the central areas of the island; Malta is also the main source of entertainment for locals and visitors alike with Michelin-starred restaurants, award-winning performances, high-tech conferences, and world-known heritage spots. Gozo is also rich in quality restaurants, cultural hotspots, and other entertainment options.

The Maltese islands are packed with great opportunities to enjoy the climate, the culture, the cuisine, and the beaches plus even more entertainment options!

The 440,000+ inhabitants of Malta and Gozo enjoy a great deal of their free time on the local beaches that cannot help but captivate the summer and serve as the perfect escape, Comino’s Blue Lagoon probably being the most awaited beach day of the year.
