The Maltese Islands offer an exhilarating contrast of colours: the azure of the Mediterranean, the mellow honey-coloured limestone which characterises the architecture, and clear skies. The Islands are a feast for the senses.
Holiday Attractions MdinaEverywhere you go, a unique historic sight awaits. Temples, palaces, cathedrals, and forts provide a living history you can almost touch. Sound plays an important part in the life of the Islands. The mix of fireworks and village band marches transforms a summer night into a special memory. The advantage of a stay on the Maltese Islands is that you can experience several holidays in one.
Cuisine here is a taste of the Islands’ multicultural heritage. Local restaurants offer a creative selection of tempting fare. After dinner, night clubs, wine bars and casinos beckon with their own brand of excitement.
To experience all this, you won’t have to travel far. Just a few hours flying time away from most European cities, the Islands are serviced by direct scheduled flights operated by the national carrier Air Malta, international airlines and various low-cost carriers.
With an agreeable year-round climate and a variety of facilities to choose from, it will not be difficult to engage in a sport activity whilst on holiday in Malta and Gozo.
The Marsa Sports Club – Malta’s largest sports centre, is about 4km south of Valletta and lists among its numerous features an 18-hole golf course, miniature golf, tennis courts, squash courts, cricket grounds and a swimming pool. Visitors can join the club on a weekly basis. Non-members are welcome on the golf course and clubs can be rented at a small charge.
Marsa Golf Course in MaltaMost hotels offer facilities including tennis courts, squash courts, gym, swimming pools and saunas. Many of them also offer watersport facilities, including scuba diving, water skiing, windsurfing and sailing.
Football is Malta’s national sport, with matches played at various pitches around the islands, including the National Stadium in Ta’ Qali, limits of Ħ’Attard
Horseback riding is another popular activity with locals and visitors alike. Horse racing is one of Malta’s prime spectator sports, with races held every Sunday, between October and May.
Maltese lawn bowling called boċċi, and tenpin bowling are also very popular at a local level. Clay pigeon/skeet shooting is common, with competitive/practice shootings taking place on Sunday mornings.
The Malta Marathon is held at the end of February and attracts several long distance runners from around the world and the Malta Amateur Athletics Association also organises a great number of events such as road races, cross country races and track and field events.
Not surprisingly, watersports play a big role in the activity range on the Islands and equipment is available to rent at almost every major sandy beach or beach club.
Paragliding, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing and scuba diving are all enjoyed by locals and tourists. Sailing regattas are held regularly between April and November.
Other sporting events held locally include basketball, cycling, rugby, waterpolo, climbing and abseiling, hockey, judo, wrestling, table tennis, fencing and many more.read more
