Malta ... island nation comprising an archipelago of seven islands in the Mediterranean Sea. A country of Southern Europe, Malta lies south of Sicily, east of Tunisia, and north of Libya. The country's official languages are Maltese and English. Roman Catholicism is the most practised religion. The islands constituting the Maltese nation have been ruled by various powers and fought over for centuries. Malta has been a member state of the European Union (EU) since 2004 and it is currently the smallest EU country both in population and in area. Malta is the only nation in the world that has collectively been awarded the George Cross for conspicuous gallantry in World War II as a part of the British Empire, and its flag bears a replica of that award.
Newest Review: ... neither offer much of a choice in getting there later than 7.30am. We chose Malta for our wedding as you can't get married in Spain and the only other option was Cyprus. Cyprus was deemed to be too hot for my 2 year old (1 at the time) and the other kids that were coming, so we went for Malta. Ironically enough, we ended up there in what the locals were calling a heat wave. It was 34C in the ... more

Malta is changing big time - the Young genteration have forgotten how we brits helped them in the war. The Maltese think that everyone from outside Malta live like lords and have buckets full of money. Try to explain that people have saved for 50 weeks of the year to live like lords for 2 weeks while on holiday - they just don't believe it. Maltese people think they are badly done by. But they are all on get rich quick schemes from holiday people. There are always two rates - one for Maltese and one for visitors. Malteses people in general are only friendly because they are trying to empty your pockets and bank! Cunning methods they use to extract money from visitors. Never trust flesh while it's still warm!! especially Maltese.

I can reccommend The Overflow Restaurant in Qawra. Very nice and welcoming staff and food very pleasant especially the fresh fish which was very impressionative. Also the fillet was very nice. I liked it and will go back there soon

Firstly let me explain why I went to Malta, well if you look at my profile picture, that is me on my wedding day in, yep you've guessed it, Malta. The wedding in Malta experience was absolutely fantastic and for the most part the whole two weeks away were, but there were some huge negatives too. The Island is absolutely beautiful, there can be no doubt about that, and the see is lovely and clean, but there are only 2 beaches on the entire island and neither offer much of a choice in getting there later than 7.30am. We chose Malta for our wedding as you can't get married in Spain and the only other option was Cyprus. Cyprus was deemed to be too hot ... Read the complete review
