The Best of Luxurious Malta

There is no holiday quite like one spent sailing your yacht in the Mediterranean. The islands of Greece and Italy are often packed in the summer months, yet Malta is often overlooked. A hidden gem that takes influence from Europe and North Africa, its unique heritage is waiting to be explored in style and grandeur. Below, we take a look at luxury Malta.

What To Do in Malta

The most alluring prospect in Malta is its architecture. Its influences garnered from its location between two continents have made it extremely unique. The Hagar Qim temples predate even European settlements and were in place before the Pyramids of Giza. The museum attached can be a little dry, so be sure to hire a guide who will tell you all about the excavation and unearthing of the temples. However, for the most opulent architecture, St John's Cathedral is one of the most grand in Europe. Built in the 16th century, it is filled with gold and marble ornamentation from floor to ceiling. It also houses one of Caravaggio's most famous works, The Beheading of St John the Baptist.

If you want to unwind after all that culture, then no trip to Malta would be complete without a visit to a casino. The island has become a business hub for the international iGaming community. Many of its major operators have bases here and have played a massive part in the development of popular franchises like the Fishing Frenzy slot game, as well as the expansion of the industry's innovations like live slot gaming. Thus, its physical casinos have risen to become some of the greatest in the world. The most famous of these is the Dragonara, due to its perfectly preserved 1870s architecture and location on the Tad-Dragun peninsula.

Explore the Sea

If you do arrive by boat, then you are in for a treat. The sea is an integral part of Malta and its culture, and many of its great attractions are found in its oceans. It is one of the most sought-after diving locations in the world. This is mainly due to it being a haven for shipwrecks that have attracted all types of flora and fauna. The Grand Harbour is a spectacular sight, with its limestone fortifications and tiered gardens. If you do decide to trek inland, then a visit Mdina is an absolute must. While Valletta is the current capital, it was previously this inland city. It sits on a high plateau and at various points has been occupied by the Romans, Arabs, and Christians. When the capital moved, its narrow alleyways, churches, and squares were left behind. It is now known as the silent city, due to its quiet, hushed nature.

The beauty of Malta is that you can spend three days here, or a month. It is small enough for a fleeting visit, yet encapsulating enough to make you want to stay forever. Not too busy, yet never empty, it has something for everyone. Make sure you book accommodation in advance for certain times of the year, particularly in the summer, as it can get busy.
