Malta Holiday Photography - Top things to do in Malta

A Weekend in Malta and my top 5 things to do.

After a very busy wedding season this weekend I managed to grab myself a break in Malta for a weekend's holiday to recharge the batteries. We had a fantastic time enjoying the food and seeing the sights and relaxing in what is the low season ( but with still very pleasant weather). Here are a few of my favourite holiday snaps and my top 5 things to do in Malta. This trip inspired me to pursue Malta as a future wedding photography destination so fingers crossed ill be back here next year to shoot a wedding!

Drive around Gozo

Just above the main Island of Malta you can drive on to a ferry that will take you to the smaller Island of Gozo, this place is tiny but has heaps of natural and architectural wonders to get lost in. Lonely Planet  has a great one day drive through the northern part of the island and although we got lost numerous times ( Malta isn't the best at signposting!) we saw plenty of things in about a 4 hour period. The Azure Window is a must see and their are plenty of great beaches to dip your feet.

Get lost around Malta's narrow streets

In each of Malta's cities it is very easy ( and satisfying) to get lost in all the the little alleyways. You never know what you might come across whether it be a peaceful cafe or another beautiful church.

Valetta and Saint John's Co-Cathedral.

No trip to Malta would be complete without a trip the beautiful city of Valetta. This place is bustling with history and I found I got a neck ache from the amount of time I spent looking up! I actually came here to find the old bar my Grandma ran when she met my Grandfather here, unfortunately it had been turned into a Karen Millen shop! Saint John's Co-Cathedral was magnificent to wonder around and held a fantastic collection of old tapestries which are worth checking out.

Explore Malta's Countryside

Ok so to the naked eye Malta can look rather dry and that the countryside doesn't have to much to offer but we got so much enjoyment from just picking a destination and driving, we found awesome forts an cliff faces and great places to relax.

The silent city, very accurately named. This place is so peaceful and the place to be during sunset.
