Overlooking Malta’s picturesque sister islands of Gozo and Comino, and surrounded by the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea, this welcoming 4-star waterfront Paradise Bay Resort is the ideal holiday destination for those looking for peace and quiet in a tranquil setting. Situated by the water’s edge, the Paradise Bay Resort in Malta is a sea view hotel in an amazing location, close to some of the island’s best beaches. Spacious, comfortable rooms, great restaurants and bars, a wide range of leisure facilities, and warm, friendly service make it simply one of the best places to stay in Malta.
With four seawater pools, one of them a dedicated children’s pool, a private sandy beach, tennis courts, water sports, and scuba diving available, guests are free to be as relaxed or active as they choose when they stay at the Paradise Bay Resort. Maltese cuisine is an exciting blend of European and North African tastes and flavours and you’ll enjoy it at the Paradise Beach’s Il-Merrill and K-Lounge restaurants. The Island’s Edge Bistro is located conveniently by the pool and the private beach and serves great breakfasts and a burger/pizza style menu throughout the day.
Malta has always been strategically important in the Mediterranean and was part of the British Empire for over 150 years. With over 7,000 years of history, the list of places to visit is endless. Start in the island’s capital, Valletta, with its superb natural harbour where you’ll come across shops and cafes with British names.
Visitors are always delighted to see red-painted British letter and telephone boxes not to mention old British cars like the Morris Minor, Ford Prefect and Triumph Herald some of which are still in daily use! We’d recommend though that you hire something a little more up to date to explore the island – driving here is still on the left! The 16th century Grandmasters’ Palace, the “Sacra Infermeria”, must be high on your list followed by the megalithic temples which were built around 4,000 BC, beating Stonehenge by almost a thousand years.
The ‘silent city’ of Mdina is a must see and although its history goes back thousands of years, these days it’s a popular stop on the Game of Thrones tour where some of the places you can stop by include Maegor’s Holdfast, a fortress used during the filming of the Battle of the Blackwater and Shadow Cliffs, and the desert-like terrain of Red Waste. You must allow one day to visit Malta’s sister island, Gozo, which is easily reached by ferry. If you enjoy a local festival, barely a week goes by in summer without one being held somewhere on both Malta and Gozo, usually accompanied by an impressive firework display.
