Discover the most beautiful locations in Malta!
- Visit Valetta
The Republic of Malta’s chic capital city is Valletta. The entire city bears witness to the splendor of the European aristocrats known as the Knights of Malta, who were awarded the Maltese Islands by the Spanish King in 1530.
The capital that the Knights built was comparable to other great European capitals and befitting of their noble status. Valletta’s well-organized public squares and consistent grid layout from the 16th century demonstrate the Knights’ thoughtful urban design.
This little city, which is surrounded by the Grand Harbor and Marsamxett Harbor, is very easy to travel- the entire city may be explored on foot in less than an hour.

- St. Paul’s Bay
Situated in the Northern Region of Malta, St. Paul’s Bay is the largest hamlet and includes the settlements of Wardija, Bugibba, Qawra, Xemxija, Bidnija and Mistra. St. Paul’s Bay, named for a shipwrecked saint who brought Christianity to the Maltese, is steeped in history.
The most populous town in Malta, St. Paul’s Bay dates back to 4,000 BC. However, the town is home to many megalithic temples, ancient cart ruts, Roman ruins, 17th-century forts and Punic graves. During the Order of Saint John’s control, numerous castles were constructed, notably the oldest watchtower in Malta, Wignacourt Tower and the island’s only remaining battery, Arrias Battery.
In addition, St. Paul’s Bay was used as a landing zone for the French invasion of 1798 and as a camp for rest during World War II.
- Hagar Qim and Mnajdra
You should definitely put Malta’s amazing megalithic temples, Hagar Qim and Mnajdra, on your bucket list. These are some of the world’s oldest religious sites, spaced roughly 500 meters apart!
Hagar Qim, which translates to “worshipping stones,” is made up of three more megalithic buildings that are much older and the main temple, which is constructed from Globigerina limestone and dates back to 3,200 BC.
In contrast, Mnajdra dates from the fourth millennium BCE. It is composed of three temples: the upper, middle, and lower, all made of coralline limestone. Reportedly utilized for astronomy, the lower temple is among the most striking specimens of Maltese megalithic construction.
