Malta tour holidays
Merhba - or welcome - to Malta, the island of enchantment. Echoes of a long and glorious history abound in this sun-soaked Mediterranean gem, from the medieval walled city of Mdina to the splendid capital city, Valletta. Boats bob in picturesque fishing harbours, ‘protected’ from evil spirits by eyes painted on the bow (as they have been for more than two millennia), while locals sip Cisk (a local lager) or Kinnie (a bitter orange soft drink) at pavement cafés and rooftop bars.
Our Malta holidays will help you uncover the secrets of this magical island. We’ll explore hilltop watchtowers and megalithic temples, wander along sun-dappled baroque streets, and catch the ferry over to neighbouring Gozo.

EHIC/GHIC - Following the UK’s exit from the EU, the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is being replaced by the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). UK-issued EHICs are still valid and offer the same cover as GHICs in the EU. Once your EHIC has expired, you’ll be able to replace it with a GHIC and you can apply online. You should beware of unofficial websites that may charge if you apply through them. An EHIC or GHIC is free of charge.
Either card lets you get medically necessary state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes free of charge, however it isn’t a replacement for travel insurance, you should have both before you travel. Some European countries don’t accept either card (including the Channel Islands of Guernsey, Alderney and Sark, Norway, Iceland, and Switzerland). To access up-to-date details for the country you’re visiting, please refer to this information
No visa is needed for British citizens to enter Malta. A standard 10 year British passport is required for all holidays, which must be valid for at least 6 months beyond your planned date of return travel

Highlights of Malta holidays
Although it's less than a square kilometre in size, Malta's walled capital squeezes a lot into its compact space. The old town was built by the Knights of St John, both as a fortress and a spectacular architectural celebration of their defeat of the besieging Ottoman Turks in 1565. Spending time here is a highlight of trips to Malta - wander the narrow streets to see bustling shops and markets, historic buildings and fountain-studded squares.
Top attractions include St John's Cathedral, completed in 1578 as the headquarters for the Order of the Knights Hospitaller. Its lavish interior features beautiful paintings, sculptures and woodwork, as well as ornate tiling and sweeping arched ceilings.
If you travel south-east from Valletta, you'll find the remains of the Tarxien Temples. This complex of four megalithic structures was built around 3000 BC and provides a glimpse into what Bronze Age life was like on the islands.
Across the island from Valletta, you’ll find Mdina, a medieval hilltop town and settlement that has been inhabited since 700 BC.
Today, this walled city is a delight to visit, especially for those with an interest in historic architecture. The Vilhena Palace, for example, is an exquisite structure dating from around 1730 and it is now home to the Museum of Natural History. There's also the stunning St Paul's Cathedral, Palazzo Falzon and Mdina Gate. We usually visit Mdina on the last full day of our holidays to Malta.
This small island, floating to the north of the main Maltese island, is a rural gem, full of stunning coastlines, unspoilt countryside and quaint villages. There’s a medieval citadel and baroque cathedral to discover, plus temples that pre-date the Egyptian pyramids. It's easy to get to from Malta - travel takes around 25 minutes by boat.
