10 Reasons To Pack Your Bags And Head To Malta Right Now
This month Jet2holidays invited MTV to the central Mediterranean paradise of Malta for the ULTIMATE adventure holiday. And yes, we had a major freak out with the endless bucket list experiences you can tick off there.
Cruising underneath 1000 colourful umbrellas, cliff-jumping into some of Europe’s clearest waters at The Coral Lagoon, admiring the jaw-dropping interior of St John’s Co-Cathedral, hiking through secret caves, eating carbonara pancakes in the capital and partying on the beach underneath the stars – we were basically in heaven upping our Instagram game up to a whole new level.
So calling all you bucket-list travellers out there, here’s 10 reasons why you need to pack your bags and head to Malta, like, RIGHT NOW…
1. Cliff-Jump Into Paradise Waters At The Coral Lagoon
Think of The Coral Lagoon (Gozo) like a gigantic naturally-formed plunge pool, ready-made for endless water adventures.
Aside from being impossibly blue, the height is perfect for squad jumps, backflips and deep drives IF you can pluck up the courage ;)
2. Feel Like Mary Poppins Underneath 1000 Umbrellas In Zabbar
Umbrella Street is an annual art installation where 1000s of different coloured umbrellas are suspended across a 1km stretch of land that weaves through the neighbourhood in Zabbar.
Grab some mates and take a walk, skate, drive and A LOT of pictures for the ‘gram.
3. Go On An Indiana Jones Quest To The Hermit Chapel
Nestled deep into the cliffside sits The Hermit Chapel, a mini-wonder of the world that is one of the most unique man-made sites you’ll ever discover.
The wild green foliage and soft rock chapel walls against the backdrop of a huge cliff makes this something you CAN’T miss!
4. Dip Your Toes Into Europe’s Clearest Water At The Crystal Lagoon
Crystal Lagoon located in Comino, the smallest of the Maltese Islands, is just a short boat ride away. With unbelievably clear water, it is the PERFECT spot for swimming, snorkelling and diving.
Bring friends, inflatables, sunblock and you’ll be all set.
5. Get Interior Design Ideas At St John’s Co-Cathedral
Based in Malta’s capital Valletta, St John’s Co-Cathedral is a stunning feat of rich ornamented Baroque architecture.
Get lost inside and take detailed notes for your future 16th century inspired flat obvs.
6. Pig Out On Carbonara Pancakes (yeah you read that right!)
Malta has claim to the freshest seafood and the TASTIEST traditional cuisine, but when there’s something on a menu that elevates a normal carbonara to something even more carborific, you can’t say no.
Shoreditch Malta do the best burgers in town if you’re not feeling that adventurous. Either way, go on, treat yo’self.
7. Feel Warm & Fuzzy Walking Through Valletta’s Back Streets
If you’re looking to aimlessly walk and soak up the vibe, Malta’s capital has endless honey-coloured back streets to get lost in.
Make friends with the local cats (and the locals obviously), grab one of Malta’s famous coffees and watch the world go by. HEAVEN.
8. Take A Peep Over The Whole City At The Look-Out Tower In Senglea
Senglea is one of the Three Cities in the east of Malta. An old watch tower sits amongst the town with stunning views over the ocean to get a unique vista across the horizon.
It’s the perfect opportunity to take sight-seeing to new heights.
9. Unleash Your Inner Thrill Seeker With Some Jet-Skis
Malta is unrivalled in the amount of water activities on offer (we did ALL of them).
From parasailing to scuba-driving, swimming to snorkelling, there’s so much to do to get your blood pumping. Oh, and it’s super cheap, so…BONUS.
10. Chase The Sunset Through The Caves At The Blue Grotto
The Blue Grotto in Malta is a complex cave system with fantastic light reflections inside and a beautiful large arch opposite the island of Filfla.
Grab a boat and map out your own journey through the winding areas, and hopefully you’ll be as lucky as us to find the PERFECT sunset moment.
With return flights, accommodation, free transfers, 22kg baggage allowance, all for just a £60pp deposit and ABTA and ATOL protected, Jet2holidays has you covered with the whole package.
