Whether you are a sun-seeker or a cultural vulture, Malta is packed with first class sites.

While pristine sandy beaches are found to the North West of the Island, there are many popular swimming spots in the harbour area, including Marsamxett side which is just 5 minutes down the road from Carafa.

For history lovers, the options are endless – Megalithic temples, underground catacombs, churches and forts are dotted all over the island. For more recent history, the war museum and Fort St. Elmo are a must.

For art afficionados, see the works of Caravaggio at St. John’s co-Cathedral in Valletta and visit medieval Palazzo Falson in Mdina with its collection of antiques.

Children will enjoy beaches and fun parks, which include the original movie set where Popeye was filmed.
