Malta Vacation Rentals
Make your Mediterranean vacation or holiday in Malta even better by renting a villa or home on one of the Maltese Islands. Not far south from Sicily, the Maltese Islands consist of Malta, Gozo and Comino. With about 300 days of sunshine each year, warm summers and mild winters, Malta is prime for sunbathing and other outdoor activities. When staying at a Malta vacation rental, you might consider going scuba diving, water skiing, wind surfing, parasailing, cycling or golfing. Relaxing by the beach is a main activity in Malta. Many of the beaches are sandy with no tide, which is great for swimming and snorkeling, and beaches commonly have bars and restaurants nearby. Some of the most popular beaches include those at Mellieha Bay, Birzebbugia and Ramla Bay in Gozo. Gozo, reached by a 20-minute ferry ride, is more rural than the Island of Malta, but it has some interesting attractions. There are megalithic temples dating to thousands of years BC; the Citadel in Rabat, which was built to defend the town against pirates; and the rural fishing villages of Marsalforn and Xlendi are good places for dining on fresh seafood. For more historical touring, visit Valletta and its Palace of the Grand Masters; the Mediterranean Conference Centre; the National Museum of Archeology; the National Museum of Fine Arts; and St. John’s Co-Cathedral, built in the 1570s. On the mostly undeveloped Island of Comino, the Blue Lagoon is a popular stop for day trips or yacht visits. Renting a villa in Malta is an affordable way to be able to explore all that Malta has to offer while allowing private time for rest and relaxation.
