A glorious variety is packed into its 316 square kilometres. Not only will the deep blue seas, dizzying limestone cliffs and red-gold beaches excite you, but you will also be intrigued by the islands’ rocky landscapes that are steeped in a 7,000-year-old history of remarkable intensity.


The archipelago is made of three main islands, namely, Malta, Gozo and Camino, along with many smaller uninhabited islands. Collectively, they have the epitome of all Mediterranean climates.
