The Islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino Tourist Experience

malta diving holidaysIn Malta you'll explore 7000 years of history yet live passionately in the present. You'll span the millennia with an astonishing array of things to discover. Also wherever you go the Islands' scenery and architecture provide a spectacular backdrop. The colours are striking. Honey-coloured stone against the deepest of Mediterranean blues.

The Maltese Islands have been described as one big open-air museum. What makes them unique is that so much of their past is visible today. Delve into the Islands' mysterious prehistory, retrace the footsteps of St. Paul or see where the Knights of St. John defended Christendom.

Malta is holidaying as the mood takes you. Plus with near year-round sun, you can indulge in outdoor living at its best.

Gozo is known to provide a tranquil haven for a tempo and scene change. The charm of Malta's sister Island is immediately apparent; it's greener, more rural and smaller with life's rhythms dictated by the seasons, fishing and agriculture.
Steeped in myth, Gozo is thought to be the legendary Calypso's isle of Homer's Odyssey - a peaceful, mystical backwater. Baroque churches and old stone farmhouses dot the countryside.

The island also comes complete with many historical sites, forts and amazing panoramas as well as one of the archipelago's best-preserved prehistoric temples, the amazing Ggantija.

tourist information for malta Situated between Malta and Gozo, the smaller island of Comino is a paradise for snorkelers, divers, windsurfers and ramblers. Only 3.5 kilometers square, Comino is car-free and apart from one hotel virtually uninhabited.

The island's main attraction is the Blue Lagoon. In summer this sheltered inlet of shimmering aquamarine water over white sand is very popular with day-trippers.

Comino is also worth a visit in winter being ideal for walkers and photographers. With no urban areas or cars on the island, one can easily smell the scent of wild thyme and other herbs.
