Malta Holidays 

At the heart of the Mediterranean are the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino. Malta is the largest island while Gozo and Comino are both smaller and a lot quieter. With lots of beaches, the Maltese islands are perfect if you’re after a sunny holiday that won’t cost the earth. You’ll be able to explore prehistoric sites and medieval forts, do some diving and other water sports and visit the lovely Blue Lagoon with the family. For great nightlife as well as all these things, Malta holidays ticks all the right boxes. 

27 °C

Malta has a typical Mediterranean climate and the cool sea breezes are a welcome relief when the temperature rises to around 27°C in July. Winters are mild at around 13°C.

3 hours

There are several great places to stay on your Malta holiday. With a large selection of hotels and resorts, there really is something for everyone, whether you’re travelling alone, as a couple, with family or friends. Most visitors head for the coastal resorts to chill out on the lovely beaches, however, there are also hotels inland if you like to explore the city.  

At Airtours, our cheap deals mean that whether you want to relax at the seaside, explore the historical sites or enjoy some adrenaline-fuelled activities, we can help you find the perfect base. All Inclusive packages are particularly good value for money as they mean you don’t have to worry about paying for meals, drinks and other perks whilst you’re there. The bays along the coast are especially beautiful for an All Inclusive beach stay; check out our range of offers to put you within easy reach of all the things you want to see and do.

Unwind on the sunny beaches, explore the archaeological sites, try the waters ports and visit the lovely Blue Lagoon on Comino. Top this off with a bit of nightlife and your ideal holiday in Malta may very well create itself. 

Taking a leisurely cruise is a great way to view the island from the sea and spot its historic sites. The Knights of St. John in Malta created the emblem of the Maltese Cross, which has eight points and is now a familiar symbol worldwide. You can find out all about the Knights in the museums and visit the places they lived in by taking a stroll through the palaces and gardens.

The knights built many of the forts and watchtowers and they also created works of art, including silverware and furniture. What’s special about Malta is that so much of the past is still there for you to see today, so for a lovely beach break with plenty to see and do, why not book your next holiday to this beautiful destination?
