General Information
The Republic of Malta is an archipelago in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, nestled between Sicily and Tunisia, consisting of three main islands: Malta, Gozo, and Comino.
Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre. Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural, characterised by fishing, tourism, crafts and agriculture while Comino is largely uninhabited. All three stun with their crystal-clear waters that lap dramatic rocky beaches. With some of the most beautiful seascapes you can imagine, Malta makes for the perfect country to rent a boat in and enjoy a day at sea.


Malta has managed to strike the right balance between traditional hospitality and a cosmopolitan spirit born of our millennial history of welcoming people from all around the region and beyond. Moreover, Malta has developed into a highly sought-after location for international movie production, while Valletta’s majestic Grand Harbour welcomes cruise liner passengers from all over the world.

The island’s architectural heritage, spanning over seven millennia, will present an impressive backdrop to all your activities. Malta and its sister islands of Gozo and Comino offer far more than the traditional Mediterranean sun and sea.

They present a veritable treasure trove of heritage and culture, both ancient and modern – a living testimony to 7,000 years of civilisation. Having three UNESCO World Heritage Sites and more monuments per square kilometre than any other country, our islands have an astonishing concentration of unique cultural and historical attractions. A stroll through our towns and villages is bound to give you that particular ‘lost in time’ feeling.

Through the passage of time, Malta and Gozo have attracted the attention of the great powers that dominated the period. The varying extents of all of them, from the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Castilians, to the Knights of St John, the French and the British, have all left traces of their influence and have woven a rich tapestry of cultures for you to discover. The majority of the Maltese population is Roman Catholic, but many other religious denominations are also represented on the islands with small but well established and active communities.

The Maltese islands are just a few hours away from major European airports, and with the many scheduled, low-cost and charter flights linking Malta to a host of European and others Mediterranean countries, not to mention the excellent sea connections to Europe, getting here couldn’t be easier!
