MALTA – THE IBIZA ALTERNATIVE
A paradise hidden in plain sight, Malta is the central Med’s lesser-known answer to Ibiza. A small archipelago just off the coast of Sicily, don’t let its diminutive size fool you – it packs a punch. Best known for sun, sea and snorkelling, it’s also a treasure-trove of cultural gems and Instagram-worthy coastal towns, thanks in large part to its 7,000 year history. You know, the kind of sun-drenched scenes of tumble-down streets, shaded courtyards and azure-blue harbours that bloggers get their kicks from. Better still, the island is famed for its boutique night-spots. It attracts world-class DJs, so you can flex your hedonistic muscles and party ‘til dawn to a different beat. Alternatively, escape to the hills and dive sites of Gozo Island for a tranquil change in tempo, or go on a culinary tour of Valetta, the island’s majestic capital. A jewel in the Mediterranean crown.
