Malta travel guide

3.9
Historic Walking Areas · Architectural Buildings · Gardens
Land of Honey
Aside from the crystal azure waters and the soft sandy beaches in Malta, there is more ancient, medieval, and Baroque architecture here than most visitors have time for. Whether you are looking for a relaxing vacation spent people-watching and sun-bathing or a history lesson filled with fortified cities and catacombs, Malta lets you hop from island to island with a plethora of options. And with so much coastline wherever you are in Malta, opportunities for water sports abound, including snorkeling and diving. Despite the thriving tourism, many areas feel uncrowded due to lack of residency, leaving you space to enjoy the sun and sea at your own pace.

Majorca travel guide

Majorca offers much more than 550 km (342 mi) of shoreline, with its golden beaches and tranquil waters ideal for leisurely sailing trips. Although the island’s coastline attracts nearly 8 million tourists each year, away from the most popular beach resorts, chances for an enjoyable and authentic Majorca vacation abound, including exploring its signature limestone cliffs, now popular for cliff jumping. Deeper inland, you'll find rugged mountains and sprawling plains covered with vineyards. In the island’s interior, numerous small restaurants serve delicious and affordable authentic Mediterranean food.
