So I had the opportunity to visit Malta a few years ago, prior to covid of course. It was incredibly lovely, and I wanted to share some photos and tidbits.
For the official scoop on Malta, you can certainly check-out its Wikipedia page here. Otherwise, my casual interpretation of its info will be scattered throughout this post.
Malta is an island nation in the Mediterranean Sea, very close in proximity to Sicily and Italy. I had a great view of the sea from my hotel. There are small pockets of sandy beach to be found if you are determined, but most of the oceanside is rocky. It is still beautiful however. Some photos from the balcony of my hotel:
Since it is an island, there were impressive marinas as well as some navy ships to see…. Historically, it was considered a critical naval base for many ruling powers such as the Greeks, Romans, and now Europeans – so there is alot of nautical activity almost everywhere you go.
And as you can tell from the buildings in the background, there is historical significance here in Malta worth preserving. And one thing I’ve noticed of this city, is that they’ve kept their historical buildings very well-maintained which adds greatly to the impressiveness.
Malta has been inhabited since 5900 BC so there are many older sites, monuments, and buildings to view. There definitely is not a shortage of site-seeing here. You’ll be very busy.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my quick description of my Malta trip. I would love to go back sometime soon with my daughter. And I would highly recommend it to others as well. Let me know if you’d like to visit too!
