Malta – ‘Unmissable’ Places to Visit

Malta might be small in size  but it has an amazing variety of places to visit so deciding on a shortlist of five was difficult.

Here are the LSI top 5 ‘unmissable’ places to visit in Malta

June2014Valetta 1. Valetta. Packed into just one square mile, Malta’s capital city has been described by UNESCO as “one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world”. Brimming with cultural influences and architectural styles from the many different settlers and traders to the island, Valetta is a harmonious melting pot. Definitely one for culture vultures.
June201Gozo 2. Gozo. With its slower pace of life, welcoming locals, open countryside, raw rugged coastlines, sleepy unconverted villages and traditional crafts, Gozo show a glimpse of what it’s larger sister Malta was like a few decades ago. A slice of old world charm.
June2014MaltaBlueLagoon 3. The Blue Lagoon. Situated on the sparsely inhabited island of Comino, the blue lagoon, renowned for it’s clear, turquoise coloured water, is the perfect spot for diving and snorkeling. Don’t forget to pack your own lunch though.
June2014Club 4. Paceville. The liveliest, hippest place to hang out in for those who love to party. St Julian’s nightlife district is second to none with its multitude of clubs, music venues, bars, restaurants and cafes. Learn what it really means to party hard!
June2014Hypogeum 5. The Hal Saflieni Hypogeum.  A fascinating underground necropolis discovered as recently as 1902, this UNESCO World Heritage site is packed with tombs, paintings, statues and rock carvings. Worth visiting just for the  spooky Oracle Room where a woman’s voice will not echo, but a man’s will.
