Valletta holidays 2020

Basking in the perpetual warm glow of receiving the highly prized accolade of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the island of Malta’s number one city, Valletta is richly deserving of the title on many fronts. Chief among those is the fact that the Maltese capital is widely revered as being one of the most historically dense areas in the world, characterised by a seemingly never-ending blanket coverage of sublime architectural landmarks, one time geographically-strategic fortifications and an array of ancient era ruins to feast the eyes on.

The harbour city offers various points of interest for all visitors enjoying their Valletta holiday, whether they consider themselves history buffs or if instead it’s a plethora of other elements that the Maltese city is famous for which has attracted them in the first place. Other alternative theories as to why holidays in Valletta are soaring in popularity include the choice of sun, sea and sand worship-magnetising beach resorts which pretty much circle the city, while retail therapists might well suggest it has more to do with the much-hyped shopping destination of nearby Sliema.

Either way, this perfect Mediterranean marriage of historical/architectural intrigue, retail opportunities and of course, stunning beaches make Valletta the perfect 2020 holiday match for those looking to get away from it all.

There’s a wealth of ways to spend your precious holiday time in Valletta, with destinations and pursuits of interest to both couples and families intent on discovering just what the Maltese capital has to offer the traveller.

Frequently flagged up among the ultimate compendiums of ‘Things to Do while in Valletta’-type lists you’ll find the varied likes of the following routinely mentioned; St John’s Co-Cathedral, the National Museum of Archaeology, the National War Museum, Grandmasters Palace, the National Museum of Fine Arts, Malta Postal Museum, the Lower and Upper Barrakka Gardens, City Gate, Triton Fountain and Hastings Gardens.

A number of these are explained in a little more detail below for those intrepid individuals and groups who wish to strike out when immersing themselves in the complete Valletta holiday package. 

Beaches

Beaches

Given that it’s situated on a peninsula, it’s safe to assume that any Valletta holiday will see much coast activity, be it taking in the ocean breeze while sauntering along the city’s picturesque waterfront or feeling the sand between your toes on one of the Mediterranean-fringing beach resorts, such as St Paul’s Bay, home to the ever-popular resorts of Qawra and Bugibba

Showcasing some pretty darn, well, pretty beaches, those holidaymakers on the mooch for sun, sea, and other words beginning with the letter ‘S’ which isn’t sangria, are in for something of a treat this summer, as the island of Malta provides the setting for some memorable ocean-meets-land moments.

Like for instance St Julian’s resort; which for all intents and purposes, is a beachside town which serves up a constant dish of fine dining experiences and a variety of nightlife. More of that later, but back to the beaches right now, and the aptly-named Golden Bay is falling over itself with an abundance of them. Only visitors won’t be, as there’s more than enough space to accommodate everyone.

And if that’s not enough sand for you, then you can always jump on a boat and plot the coordinates for the neighbouring island of Gozo; which provides yet more sandy alternatives.
