Visit Malta

The tiny nation of Malta, the world’s ninth smallest country, is one of those places we’ve all heard of, we all know someone who’s been – and yet, it’s rarely at the top of anyone’s holiday list. But it should be, and here’s why.

As a country, Malta is comprised of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. All are beautiful, with their own unique charm.

Comino’s the smallest of the three. At only 3.5km2, it’s bijou enough to see without the aid of four-wheeled transport, which is just as well, as there are no cars on the island. There’s only one hotel here – the creatively-named Comino Hotel – but as the island’s only a 30-minute boat ride from Malta, and less from Gozo, there are plenty of accommodation options to consider.
