Malta has truly earned a reputation more as a great package holiday destination. The fantastic Mediterranean climate, considerable amounts of sunshine even during the winter months and the clear, warm sea are just some of the things that lend it to this market. There's an abundance of accommodation, especially in the resorts on the north east coast, the majority of which is reasonably priced. Over the past years, the government has made attempts to attract a higher class of tourist and the construction of four and five star hotels reflects this, but there's still plenty of inexpensive fare to be had. Add to the great climate and abundance of accommodation the lovely beaches, dramatic coastal scenery and variety of watersports and leisure activities, and it becomes clear why Malta is so popular with the package holidaymaker.

Malta is by no means only a place for the beach lover however. In fact, stick only to the sea and sand and you'd miss out on Malta's true highlights. Its fascinating and ancient past is evident all around you the minute you step off the beaches. Man's comprehensive temple building spree left the Ggantiji temples on Gozo, the oldest freestanding structures on earth and the labyrinthine Hypogeum containing 3600 year old bones amongst others. A few days off the beaches will give you time to explore the bustling street of Valletta, the elegant walled capital Mdina, the many attractive stone built towns and the wonderful villages that demonstrate the quieter side of Mediterranean life.

Malta has a lot to offer, so whether its sea and sand, or history that you're after, you'll find it more than satisfies.
