Ghadira Bay

Malta is the idyllic location for those who are looking for a relaxing holiday surrounded by the sun, the warm Mediterranean sea and a safe and friendly atmosphere. Due to Malta’s size, beaches are never too far away and can easily be reached from anywhere on the island.

Gozo

One of the small islands in the Maltese Archipelago is the small island Gozo, also known amongst the locals as Ghawdex, the 2nd largest island of this archipelago.  With a population of over 31,000 inhabitants, Gozo is only  67 km² in size and is more rural than the larger island of Malta.
