Malta has the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, a warm and sunny climate and a peaceful lifestyle all just waiting to be enjoyed. Anchored almost in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, around 130 kilometres from the Italian island of Sicily, Malta isn’t a mainstream destination for Australian tourists. But this little island has a lot to offer to discerning travellers with a love of culture, history and excellent weather.
First-World standards of service and infrastructure, a wealth of historical and architectural treasures (including nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites), world-class golf courses and the sparkling Mediterranean—all ensure that this tiny island will keep you occupied.
English-Speaking and Great Healthcare
Owing to its time as a British colony, locals speak fluent English—which, together with their warm and welcoming attitude, makes for easy integration. Malta enjoys plentiful sunshine year-round, world-class healthcare (consistently ranking among the top five in the world by the World Health Organisation) and tasty Mediterranean cuisine. The island also has one of the lowest crime rates to be found anywhere. Malta may be one of the more expensive locations on our list in terms of real estate, but bargains can be found if you’re willing to shop shrewdly.
