Hi, friends! I hope you are feeling love today!
One of my followers recently asked me to name my favourite place for a short break. I chose one of the nicest places I know, Malta; a small country with a big heart!
One of the 359 Churches of Malta & Gozo!
Boats, boats and more boats!
There are mysterious stone age temples, exciting catacombs and beautiful vistas to explore all within a short walk or ride from any hotel. There are remnants and artefacts from the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spanish, French and the Knights of St. John in and around the many museums that document the turbulent history of the island. Malta has been a crossroads of cultures since time immemorial.
Such treasures, however, do not detract from having fun. Malta is alive with sun, water sports and nightlife. My perfect relaxation day on Malta includes arising late to the sound of waves breaking outside my hotel balcony. After a quick breakfast, I put on a bikini and head for one of the many seaside beach clubs for sun, the occasional cooling pool dip and some chilled Prosecco sipped from my sunbed.
You must try a traditional water taxi!
Malta is an easy place to love and also to reach. Being centrally located, it is a short flight for my friends in Europe and offers excellent connections for friends from further away. The airport is small and efficient with short lines and quick baggage delivery.
Food and entertainment are a good value. The Maltese are friendly, helpful and usually speak three languages fluently (English, Maltese and Italian) plus enough words of almost all other languages to make their visitors feel welcome. The Maltese smile a lot because they know how to enjoy life!
Food is life! Try the Gbejna Cheese
So, the next time you want a break from the ordinary, catch a warm breeze and fly into Malta. Tell them that Isabella sent you and have a Prosecco for me!

It’s got beaches with clear blue waters that shimmer with the best of the Mediterranean; there are enough mountains and rivers for endless days of hiking and rafting; and to the south sit UNESCO World Heritage sites and castles that have seen the rise and fall of great empires like the Byzantine and Ottoman. But there’s one thing you won’t find: tourists .
If you’re speaking about Sicily, I agree with you completely. Malta is full of tourists during the tourist season but Sicily is remarkably free of them. Sicily is just beautiful and so close to Malta! Thanks for your comment!
That’s the trip I have planned for March, can’t wait to take in that beautiful architecture and some southern sun! Thanks for the tips!
Thanks for your comment in our post dedicated to lovely and relaxing Malta. It is such a great island where you can relax one day and explore the next. Malta is an easy place to reach. A short flight from Europe and there you are ready to enjoy all these amazing views and places to visit.
