Malta

Malta's strategic position between the European mainland and Africa has resulted in a rich history. It combines beautiful old forts and castles with rocky headlands, beautiful beaches and great nightlife. M'dina is the superbly-preserved former capital. Just beyond it, the south coast offers some great coastal cliff walks and the area is perfect for exploring on foot or by bike.

The nearby island of Gozo is quieter than the main island and sees few tourists, making it the perfect place to go and relax. Malta enjoys very mild winters. The capital city, Valletta, has wonderful 16th Century architecture, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is easily walkable.
