Cheap flights to Malta
History in abundance, stylish resorts, and some of the best diving sites in the world – it can only be Malta. Few places pack as much into such a small space as Malta.
It might only be a mere 246 square kilometres in size, but you’ll find whatever it is you’re after from a holiday in this diverse little island. Secluded beaches for you sun worshippers, 7,000 years of history for culture buffs and action-packed resorts full of watersports by day and pumping nightlife after dark – it’s all here.
The Valletta International Baroque Festival comes to Malta in January, in celebration of the Baroque identity of the island's historic capital. Performance venues for this musical extravaganza include the President's Palace and the Manoel Theatre, while performers will fly in from across the globe. vallettabaroquefestival.com.mt
No trip to Malta at this time of year is complete without a visit to a "festa", a village feast celebrating the local patron saint. Expect a party-themed atmosphere (with very religious undertones), live music and fireworks. visitmalta.com
Fancy a day off from the world? Head straight to the Atheneum Spa, at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa in Attard. Here, some of the island's best therapists make good use of local ingredients in innovative treatments. We love their speciality body scrub, made from local rosemary, honey and sea salt (De Paule Avenue, San Anton, corinthia.com/Palace-Hotel-Spa).
