Discover the Maltese Islands with our series of themed trails

The Malta Tourism Authority has created a series of themed trails showcasing the Maltese Islands’ diverse offering. Set in the sparkling blue Mediterranean Sea and boasting over 300 days of sunshine a year; the Maltese Islands are perfect for a beach holiday or a city break.

Valletta, the European Capital of Culture 2018, is home to over 320 historical sites, waterfront dining options and quirky boutique hotels. Malta’s capital can be explored completely on foot as the city is perfectly sized for a weekend’s exploration. Download the Valletta Trail here.

A tantalising melting-pot of cultures including the Sicilians, Romans, Spanish and French have influenced the unique blend of Maltese cooking. Download the Gastronomy Trail here.


Malta has become a popular destination for the bar and clubbing scene, allowing travellers to party all night and spend the following day relaxing on picturesque beaches in the warm Maltese sun. Download the Bar Trail here.


The enticing Mediterranean Sea – boasting warm water and excellent visibility all year round – calls to scuba-divers. The Maltese Islands consistently rank as one of the top three in the ‘Best Diving Destination in the World’ category at the Diver Magazine Awards, offering an array of unique dive experiences with an abundance of reefs, caves and wrecks to explore.

The Mediterranean islands have welcomed hundreds of productions and remain a perennial favourite with film producers, for whom the turquoise lagoons, concealed coves, historic temples and unscathed cliffs make it an ideal filming location. Malta has welcomed big budget blockbusters including Gladiator, Troy, World War Z, The Da Vinci Code and The Spy Who Loved Me as well as the popular Game of Thrones series.
