There’s no tip toeing around it, Malta is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

I mean, seriously.

This tiny Mediterranean marvel, over 30,000x smaller than the US, floats happily halfway between Europe and Africa, and is quickly becoming a bucket list destination evoking drool from wanderlusters across the globe.

… And even if you’re one of the few who haven’t heard of Malta, it’s likely you’ve seen it countless times. After all, for decades, its crystal clear waters and honey-washed limestone buildings have made it a top contender to represent historic and faraway lands on screen.

But make no mistake: Malta is far more than a scenic backdrop for Blockbuster films like Troy and Gladiator, it’s a historical powerhouse packed with prehistoric temples, churches, museums and most of all, a proud population keen to share their 7000 year history.
