Malta consists of three small islands located in Mediterranean to the south of Sicily. Despite being just 3 hours away, it remains largely undiscovered by mass travel and offers interesting options for short breaks and longer holidays.
- Weather! The British climate often leaves us longing for a little more sunshine particularly during our autumn and winter. In summer Malta is very hot, but in spring, autumn, and winter temperatures are cooler and Malta offers an ideal climate for relaxing and exploring.
- Culture – for a tiny Island Malta has an amazing supply history that is easily accessible by foot and local transport. Valletta, is almost like an open museum with its magnificent fortress build by the Knights of St John in the 16th Century. 2018 is a great time to visit as Valletta is the European Capital of Culture.
- Food – the Maltese cuisine is greatly influenced by the islands history and offers an exotic mix of Italian, French, British and Arabic with excellent restaurants and local specialities.
- Activities – there are a good range of walking and biking trails plus a beautiful coast for swimming and scuba diving.
Valletta is a true cultural capital and perfect for a weekend break. Built on a peninsula just 1km by 600m it is enclosed by towering bastion walls and surrounded by clear blue. The Knights of St John laid the foundation stones in 1566 and created an eloquent baroque city.
There is always something going on, from the Baroque Music Festival in January to February’s carnival, an opera week in spring and the summer Jazz festival on the banks of the Grand Harbour. A great way to see its dramatic architecture, bastion walls and sea forts is on one of the harbour cruises that leave daily from the Sliema Waterfront.

Gozo is a 25 minute ferry trip from Malta and to experience its rural beauty I recommend a stay in one of the uniquely restored farmhouses.
Comino is tiny, just 3.5sq km, traffic free and boasting some of the best swimming in the Med. It can be accessed by ferry from Malta or Gozo and the ‘Blue Lagoon’ is a popular day trip. For those who want to really get away from it all we can arrange a stay in one of the island’s two hotels.
What our customers say:
"As we have planned many holidays with Adeona Travel, they understand our needs and really appreciate what makes a good holiday for us - whether it be sand, sea, and sun or an adventurous, multi-centre holiday. Nothing is too much trouble, and we only have to give them a brief outline and they will fill in the details. We have always found their pricing to be very competitive. We wish them every success for the future - they really deserve it."Brian & Carol Greene, Gatley, Cheadle, Cheshire
"Your meticulous organisation of our antarctic trip made it an absolutely wonderful experience - thrilled with the deep blue of the icebergs and the friendly antics of the local penguins! Your suggestion of an initial stay on the horse riding estancia provided a perfect introduction to South America - the gauchos were amazing. Thank you all so much for making this one of our best holidays ever."Gail and Richard Nakielny, Sheffield
