If you plan to spend your vacation on an island, and you prefer the Mediterranean Sea, Malta may be the right choice for you. Among beautiful beaches, there is a lot more to discover. Some of them are diving tours, cruise tours, but also interesting architecture. If you have a hard time choosing what to do and what to visit, here is a list of three very popular places where you can go and have great memories to bring back home.

Mdina

Mdina is the former capital of Malta. It is a fortified city in the northern part of Malta. Its history started in the 8th century when it was founded by Phoenician settlers under the name Maleth. It served as the island’s capital from antiquity to the medieval period. That fact tells a lot regarding the architecture that you can see there. Its beauty relies on many medieval buildings and baroque-styled architecture dating from the 17th century. The interesting thing to visit nearby is also St Paul’s Catacombs.

Blue Lagoon and Comino Island

This is one of the most popular places in Malta. Crystal clear water, sandy beach, and beautiful landscape of rocks that surround it is not something that you want to miss out on. Interesting thing is that its official name is Salt Cay and is also known as “real” Bahamas. If you feel curious, Comino Island is nearby with a lot fewer people, cars, and very rich nature.

Gozo

Another very interesting island in the Maltese archipelago is Gozo. If you don’t like crowded places Gozo is the right place to go. Some of the interesting sights that you can see there are Ggantija Neolithic temples and its old villages. If you want to see most of it, you should stay at least two days.
