If you're looking for a fantastic Mediterranean vacation, then Malta should be included in your choices. Unfortunately though, its famous Azure Sea Arch collapsed days ago after being visited for many years.
But cheer up! There are tons of other reasons why you should definitely include Malta in your travel bucket list. Here are some of them.
Language barrier is not a problem. Although Maltese is the primary language of Malta, almost everyone speaks English, unlike other European destinations. The stress of communication problem is one of the hassles of traveling abroad, but you won't encounter that problem here. It used to be part of a British Empire until 1964, hence the reason why the populace can converse English well.
Malta's prehistoric temples. How often can you say that you've visited temples that are thousands of years in age? In Malta, you can visit Mnajdr, Hagar Qim, and Tarxien-they are built between 3600BC and 2500 BC, and are all UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Tours to these sites are fascinating because of an elaborate audio guide as well as an introductory exhibition in the visitor center that will surely pique your curiosity.
Plenty of accommodation choices. Although located in Europe, you can forget about the stigma of overspending in a European vacation here in Malta as there is always something for everyone. The accommodation choices, for example, range from backpacker hostels to 5-star resorts. If you want a lively crowd at night, you could find lodging along St. Julian's; but if you prefer peace and quiet there are tons of other choices in Mellieha and St. Paul's Bay.
Malta's diving scene. Malta's diving spots are world-famous, and many diving enthusiasts frequent Malta every year for this reason--his place is home to interesting shipwrecks and underwater landscapes. Don't worry if you're a beginner, there are lots of diving agencies that can help you teach the basics.
The Maltese Hospitality. Seriously, it's worth going to Malta even just for the locals. Most people are friendly, and oftentimes, they go out of their way to make tourists feel welcome and comfortable. Ask any tourist, they'll surely say the same thing.
