Situated in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, Malta is an archipelago of seven islands, offering picturesque coastlines, magnificent architecture, colourful fiestas and wealth of historical attractions.
The fusion of North African, Italian, British and Arabic influences with Sicilian inspired cuisine and Mediterranean climate ensures an eclectic and varied charter vacation. Crystal clear waters are home to a breathtaking array of fish and coral, perfect for anchoring up and diving into the underwater world or trying out some of the water sports on offer. Discover the spectacular baroque architecture, preserved waterfalls and picturesque harbour of Malta’s capital, Valletta before taking time out enjoy time out on the many bays and beautiful beaches around the coast.
Adrift in the channel between Malta and Gozo, with an area of less than two square kilometres, Comino is the smallest of the Maltese Islands. It has just a handful of permanent residents and one hotel, but what it lacks in humans it makes up for in wildlife. The island is almost one entire nature reserve, with a bird sanctuary and some stunning underwater life along the coastline. Once you have explored the island (on foot as there are no cars), and discovered the 14th-century chapel, you are left with the island’s main attraction – the crystal-clear sea. The cave-strewn coastline has some of the Mediterranean’s most appealing snorkelling and diving sites, and it’s where you will find the renowned Blue Lagoon – a protected inlet of unbelievably shimmering water.
