Family treasure are revealed on Malta’s latest family trail

Families love exploring the Maltese islands, comprised of Malta, Gozo and Comino, as they offer a treasure trove of activities, sites and experiences. With an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, parents and children can discover the islands’ history, natural landscapes, marine habitats, and a 1980’s Popeye Village movie set with the help of the Malta Tourism Authority’s new Family Trail which you can download here.


The map highlights kid-tastic experiences from adventures on quad bikes in Gozo, a Segway tour around Valletta, to pirate, fairy tale and Maltese Knights fancy dress opportunities for children at the Playmobil Funpark. Additional tourist attractions include:

  • Esplora Interactive Science Centre – overlooking the Grand Harbour, the centre brings science to life through hands-on activities, workshops and performances. A planetarium, outdoor adventure experience, activity centre and exhibition hall cater to all ages and interests.
  • Malta 5D – families will discover more about Malta’s extensive history in this multi-sensory 3D film with moving seats, air and water blasts.
  • Malta National Aquarium – the archipelago is the number one destination for diving in Europe, but for families who’d like to stay dry whilst exploring what lies beneath the Maltese waters, the aquarium showcases Malta’s western shoreline and Valletta’s Harbour.
  • Mellieha Bay, Malta and Ramla Bay, Gozo – the longest sandy beaches on Malta and Gozo, stretching 800m across each, are perfect for sandcastle building.
