Malta, an island country located in Southern Europe and situated in the Mediterranean Sea, is officially called the Republic of Malta. The country is actually an archipelago where only the three largest islands are inhabited – Malta, Gozo and Comino.
Malta is popular among travellers for its rich history, beautiful scenery and unique architecture. It has a number of historical sites that would pique the interest of any travellers. Spend a day visiting the Tarxien Temples or the fortified city of Mdina, also known as Città Vecchia or Città Notabile. Malta’s terrain is low, rocky and has a coastline with numerous bays and seaside cliffs. This allows for many leisure activities and adventure sports such as scuba diving, paragliding, wind surfing and hiking up to the highest point in Malta, the Ta’Dmejrek, which is just 253 metres above sea level.
When you’re thinking of flying to Malta, there are many places of interest to visit and gorgeous sights to see that should not be missed. Make sure to visit Mdina, a medieval walled city that seems to have escaped from the inevitability of modern living. Mdina, a UNESCO World Heritage site, has been described as a picturesque and magical place with narrow and labyrinth-like streets among sandstone buildings that turn into a gorgeous colour in sunlight.
Malta’s capital city, Valletta, is also a must-visit destination in the country. It is known for its unique Baroque architecture, vibrant nightlife and delightful cuisine. Another UNESCO World Heritage site, Valletta’s graceful church domes, striking military forts and Baroque buildings, which is surrounded by deep moats, provides a magnificent backdrop for the city.
Malta enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean climate that attracts many tourists to the country all year round. The peak summer months of July to September are the perfect time to visit Malta if you are planning to spend most of your days at the beautiful beaches. If you plan to spend your holiday both on sightseeing across the country and sunbathing by the beach, then the best time to book a flight to Malta would be between the months April to June as well as October. This is when the weather is still warm enough for trips to the beach and when the top tourists spots are less crowded with travellers. The months of November to March are considered the rainy months but it should not be a deterrent for visitors since it will be mostly rain showers with plenty of warm and sunny days.
Malta has one airport, Malta International Airport (MLA), which serves all the islands in the country. Located between Luqa and Gudja, it is locally known as Luqa Airport or Valletta Airport internationally. Airlines that operate flights to Luqa Airport include Air Berlin, Alitalia, British Airways, Emirates, Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines.
