The collected islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino located in the centre of the Mediterranean have been voted best climate in the world by International Living Magazine. Its 300 days of sunshine a year makes it a superb location for a beach based trip. Malta’s mainland has fast become a cosmopolitan destination playing host to numerous restaurant, bar and club options whilst its rich cultural heritage houses temples dating back to 6000 BC.

This destination offers fantastic value for money with luxurious accommodation offered at reduced rates. In contrast, Malta’s little sister, Gozo, boasts sleepy villages and tranquil countryside with rolling hills and terraced fields the perfect option for a more laid back trip. Spectacular cliffs and picturesque bays compete with remains of millennia-old history and culture provide ample opportunities for the intrepid explorer and amateur photographer.
