Feeling antsy? Escape the daily grind and have some fun in Malta, an island with 7,000 years of history packed into an area of just 316 square km. Cheap packages to Malta can deposit you among prehistoric temples, medieval towns and the extraordinary architectural legacy of the Knights Malta, and because the island is so small, you won't have to travel far to reach any of the sights. The British left their language and their bright red letter boxes, but the rest of the culture is thoroughly Maltese. From beaches to catacombs, your cheap holiday in Malta will surely be one to remember. Things to do in Malta
Malta is as best known as a beach destination. While there is certainly no shortage of sun, sea and sand, there's more to do in Malta than swimming, snorkelling and relaxing. Start your visit at Hal Saflieni Hypogeum in Paloa. This underground burial complex was cut into solid rock around 3000 B.C. At one time, these caves housed around 7,000 bodies deposited over a period of 1,000 years. The burial chambers get busy during visitation hours, so book your slot at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Valletta, the capital city, the day before.
Above-ground, Mnajdra and Hagar Qim in Qrendi are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Older than Stonehenge and significantly more elaborate, these prehistoric temples are amongst the oldest stone buildings in the world. If diving is your thing, you'll be pleased to hear that Malta is famous for its unusual underwater landscapes and wrecks. Bugibba on the northeast coast is jam-packed with dive centres offering everything from beginner's courses to equipment hire for advanced divers. To get the most out of this small and history-rich island, check out one of Wotif’s Malta car hire options. Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
Open-air markets are at the heart of Maltese life, and almost every town has its version. Ask at the local tourist office for market days. For traditional stores, souvenir and craft shops that can satisfy the most dedicated shopper, take a walk through Valletta's busy retail centre, which is built around Republic Street and Merchants Street.
Malta has branched out from its British culinary heritage—you’ll find loads of scrumptious eats! Stop for coffee and order a pastizz, a traditional pasty filled with cheese or peas, in one of Valletta's many courtyard cafes. In the evening, head for Mdina, Malta's first capital. This medieval-style citadel city is where you'll find tiny atmospheric restaurants hidden among the labyrinth of alleys ideal for romance and a view of history.
Nightlife on this tourist island is always bustling. Malta has become a main destination for clubbers, with internationally renowned DJs headlining during the busy summer months. The main clubbing action is at St. Julians, 9 km north of Valletta. What's Next?
