Malta is one of the best tourist destinations because of its sun. The sun and warm climate is not the only thing that draws crowds to Malta to enjoy Holidays. In Malta, you get to experience a one of a kind scenery and architecture. Malta is full of history and this is reflected in Malta Holidays.

Malta's climate is typical of the Mediterranean and is strongly influenced by the sea. The Maltese Islands have a pleasantly sunny climate with a daily average of around 12 hours sunshine in summer going down to 5 to 6 hours in mid-winter.

Summers are hot, dry and very sunny. Day-time temperatures in summer are often mitigated by cooling sea breezes. Spring and autumn are cooler, except when the occasional Scirocco wind from Africa brings unseasonally high temperatures and humidity. Winters are mild, with the occasional short cold spells brought about by the north and north-easterly winds from central Europe.

The Maltese Archipelago is made up of a number of Islands. Three of these are inhabited - Malta, the largest, which may be considered as being to some extent the ‘mainland', Gozo - number two in terms of size, and tiny Comino. There are other islands - Cominotto, Filfla, St. Paul's Islands and Manoel Island - which are even smaller and uninhabited.

There's the historic capital city of Valletta - the island's commercial and administrative centre - and the famous Three Cities across the Grand Harbour. There is the Sliema/St. Julian's/Paceville area, renowned for its cosmopolitan feel and lively nightlife. There are the coastal resorts of the north, the picturesque villages of the south and the rural centre. Every town and village has something special to offer Including its colourful annual ‘festa'.

Malta is packed with attractions and places of interest. The capital city of Valletta host to regular plays and concerts, as well as scores of exhibitions and street events. The Museum of Archaeology in Valletta houses an exceptionally rich collection of prehistoric artefacts. The War Museum at Fort St. Elmo is home to a Sunday military parade in period costumes re-enactment and the capital also possesses the impressive Grand Master's Palace and St. John's Co-cathedral.

Malta has beaches for everyone, from windsurfers to sunbathers. Choose from golden sand, red sand, rocks, blue lagoons and even inland seas. Some beaches and rocky shores are off the beaten track, but worth seeking out for their seclusion. Do not miss a boat trip to Comino's Blue Lagoon for the ultimate in azure water. Malta's most popular beaches are Mellieha Bay, Ghajn Tuffieha and Golden Bay.

In Malta, you'll find plenty of natural attractions to view or visit. The Azure Window, the Inland Sea and Fungus Rock - a trio of natural wonders located within a few meters from each other in Dwejra on Gozo - are absolute must-sees. There are also caves and grottos with interesting rock formations to discover.

The natural attractions on the Maltese Islands are not found only above ground but also continue underwater. So snorkelers and divers can find some of the most bizarre landscapes of the Mediterranean in the sea surrounding Malta, Gozo and Comino.
