Malta | Travel with Hempnath

Malta - a swimmer's paradise situated in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast is a nation known for historic sites related to a succession of rulers including the Romans, Moors, Knights of Saint John, French and British. No wonder it's culturally so rich and diverse.   

We made a quick trip to Malta couple of months ago and had the time of our life. We divided our time between Malta and Gozo. Here, we would like to share with you all some of our favourite spots in no particular order.


1. Nadur, Gozo

Nadur is one of the quietest villages in Gozo. This place defines the beauty of simplicity. With its narrow streets, sandy stone houses and aesthetic doors and decors, it truly stands the test of time. We loved our downtime on this side of the country. If you're looking for some peace and quiet, Nadur is the place to stay in while you visit Gozo.

2. Blue Lagoon, Comino island

Blue Lagoon is just twenty minutes boat ride from either Malta or Gozo. If you can, make sure to go further from the entrance area to really absorb and enjoy the beauty of Blue Lagoon without too many tourists flocking the sea. 

3. Azure Windows and Weid il Ghasri, Gozo

Azure window also know as Dwerja windowd although doesn't contain its original arch structure anymore ( collapsed in storm in 2017), it still makes up for a great sight along the coastal walk. You can also hike to ( or drive to) next destination in Ghasri for a refreshing swim. Wied il-Ghasri is a secluded inlet with a tiny pebbly beach wedged between high cliffs. 

4. Mdina, Malta

Mdina is a fortified city in the Northern Region of Malta, which served as the island's capital from antiquity to the medieval period. Protected under UNESCO world heritage site, it is rich in history and surrounded by tall bastion fortifications. It’s filled with centuries-old buildings that have been well maintained throughout the ages.

5. St peter's pool, Marsaxlokk

From the popular St Peter's pool for a dive to remains of salt pans to chill at, this area in Marsaxlokk is a beautiful landscape. Catch the sunset here for slightly cooler dip and to avoid the crowd.
