Malta is made up of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. Although you may not have time to visit them all, it is highly recommended (if not mandatory) to visit at least the two main ones. Therefore, spending at least one day in Gozo is necessary to complete your stay.

Do not miss the city of Victoria not even the beautiful landscapes that the island can offer you. One of those who cut their breath are those of the Blue Window. Although the stone arch collapsed in 2017, the area is still impressive. Also, if you are a fan of Game of Thrones it will sound to you, because there the Khaleesi and Khal Drogo got married.

5. Enjoy the sun and water

Although it is one of the best known islands in the Mediterranean, the truth is that Malta has few sandy beaches. Those of rocks or even natural pools carved by the sea itself are much more common.

One of the best areas is the Sliema, where you can bathe, relax and enjoy the atmosphere, especially at sunset. Another good option is that of St. Julian's or Spinola Bay. All highly recommended.

If you still want to know some beach, the best beach is that of Mellieha Bay, of fine sand, bars and tourists. In addition, you can practice some water sport or rent a motorized mat (it is quite curious). You can even visit Popeye Village on the same day, a kind of very cinematic theme park.

This is just a small list of all the things you can do in Malta. This is an archipelago where surprises await you almost in every corner. Do you write it on your list of destinations?
