The Maltese Archipelago consists of 3 main islands – Malta (247 km2), Gozo (66 km2) and Comino (3 km2). Although seemingly small-sized, the islands offer an enviably mild climate, in fact, the best one amongst the developed countries. Could 300 days of sunshine and a temperature range of 15°C to 31°C be underestimated? Certainly not.
A colourful history to unveil.
As the saying goes, ‘Don’t judge the book by its cover’, the Maltese islands have a colourful history to unveil, despite their size. From the oldest Neolithic free standing temples to the compelling stories for the Knights of St. John – one cannot suspect how much there is to discover. Valletta, the capital city of Malta, is even believed to become the European Capital of Culture for 2018.
Malta has a vibrant entertainment sector. During summer, a number of events, including Maltese traditional feasts (festas) and unique open air parties are held.
U-Dive courses Malta – a highly diversified underwater ecosystem.
To all sea-lovers, there is great news. In 2013, EU has classified 97% of Maltese bathing water to be absolutely pristine. The water surrounding the archipelago is crystal clear, azure blue and nourishes a highly diversified underwater ecosystem. The Maltese climate makes it possible for all those who have a passion for maritime and adventurous sports, such as diving, sailing, wind surfing, kite-surfing and waterskiing, to practise those activities all year round, while benefiting from the islands’ idyllic splendour.
