The best thing to do in summer is to go on holidays. And where else than at the Mediterranean! On the map of all-inclusive summer holiday deals there are not only Turkey with its Riviera or the Greek islands. The summer fun has much more in store than this! There is also Malta – one of the smallest nation states in the world, comprised of the main island Malta, Gozo, Comino and Cominotto.
Malta - A Mediterranean all-inclusive Heaven
Malta is by default one of the Mediterranean's jewels. Affordable all-inclusive deals mean that everyone can enjoy summer holidays in Malta...
Megalithic Temples of Malta
Malta counts as a universe in itself, as, throughout time, it gathered on its territory – tiny as it might seem on the world's map – a myriad of cultural influences that all add up to the charms of summer holidays spent on this golden island. Having in mind that Malta is one of the earliest inhabited lands on Earth, it also hosts some of the earliest traces of civilization. The temples of Hagar Qim or Mnajdraare definitely worth a look, as they date back to 3500 BC or so. Ever since then and up until nowadays, Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spanish, French, Brits, pirates, knights, gamblers or nobles, all left a mark on the small island bathing in the azure of the Mediterranean.
Malta - The Honey Island
It is being said that the island is called Malta due to its golden color that resembles that of honey, as the name stands for 'The Honey Island'. And for sure it is so! Similarly, all-inclusive summer holidays in Malta would feel just as sweet. The island has a lot to offer! Not only in terms of history and culture, but also in terms of natural beauty.
Blue Laggon of Comino
There is the Blue Lagoon, with the best crystal clear waters in the whole Mediterranean. It is for certain a must see must do in a lifetime if you haven't tried it so far. Plus, it is the location that you have dreamed of seeing with your own eyes, in case you like romantic movies, as scenes from Return to The Blue Lagoon have been shot there as well.
The Blue Window
You might think that better than the Blue Lagoon it could not get, but just wait and see! There is the Blue Window and The Sea Inside awaiting to be looked through, to be discovered! The Blue Window and The Sea Inside are wonders of nature that have been genuinely adopted by humans, as they express the harmony and beauty that we all like to be surrounded by. The Blue Window might be one of the most splendorous and spectacular views on the Mediterranean.
As for the Inland Sea, it stands for a place of great tranquility and peacefulness, as it is separated by the outer sea through a mountainous wall. There is a wall of wonders between the Inland Sea and that dazzling outer mediterranean space. You surely must go there and feel it for yourself – the intimate dripping silence of the inner sea in contrast to the roar and turmoil that are on the other side of the mountainous wall, as you ride the boat on the Mediterranean sea. Scenes for The Pirates of the Caribbean have been shot here and no wonder it stood for a block-buster! Part of the fascination cast on the viewers is also due to those wonderful landscapes that appear in the movies.
Related to pirates, they have also left their traces in Malta, as this used to be one of their cribs and hiding spots. Nowadays, one of the main attractions is to explore the depths of the surrounding waters of Malta. Diving is fun in Malta and it definitely resembles a treasure search. You will find sank ships to be explored and maybe you are lucky to find your treasure too!
