Located in the middle of the Mediterranean between Italy and Tunisia,Malta will make the perfect weekend break or a longer one if you are lucky enough!
We picked our accommodation in Sliema,strategically connected by bus and ferry with the rest of the island.
Enjoy a croissant and a cappuccino in one of tasteful Sicilian coffe in Sliema and then head to the seaside. There are no beaches in this area,just docks with sunbed.
In the afternoon catch a bus to Rabat,the old city.
Explore the cobbled streets with colourful doors.
Book a minicruise to the Blue Lagoon.
There are usually many throughout the day but the soonest you get there,the highest is the chance to find a free spot on the beach.
Be prepared to be surrounded on your minicruise by noisy teenagers,loud music and a general mess.
You will also have to queue up a while to take advantage of the free buffet.
However,what it’s waiting for you on the other side of the island it’s so shockingly beautiful that you will hope to miss the cruise to go back!
You can’t possibly leave this great island without visiting its capital, La Valletta.
Jump on a ferry from Sliema and you will be there in 5-10 minutes.
Explore the main square and have lunch in one of the alfresco restaurants and bistros in the side streets.
Rabbit alla Maltese is one of their specialities!
Later, head for a stroll and admire the beauty of the island from the Upper Barakka gardens.
Bye Malta!It has been short but sweet 😛
