Top 3 spots to relax on your holiday in Malta

When you consider the best European places to visit, Malta provides a scenic locale with plenty to see and do. However, if you are seeking a more mellow pace for your vacation, one of the best places to relax in Europe would be Malta. In this post, we take a peaceful meander through some of these lovely places to relax in Malta, perfect for a quiet exploration or just watching the world go by.

No visit to Malta would be complete without immersing yourself in the history and culture of Mdina, the old capital of Malta. Enclosed by ramparts that have stood the test of time, this ancient and enchanting city might not seem an obvious choice for a peaceful moment, and yet its charms are ideal for relaxing. 
The walled city seems to have been spared from the trappings of contemporary life, and its mediaeval magic is truly stunning. Mdina has another name that will thrill those seeking peace and quiet – the Silent City. Far from being a noisy tourist trap, there is a sense of peace within these walls, and you can experience it whether you are wandering the ancient streets or sipping a coffee while watching others experience Mdina.

Blue Grotto Malta

Journey to the west of Malta and experience the true serenity of Blue Grotto and Mnajdra & Ħaġar Qim, for some of the most beautiful and unique landscapes on the island of Malta where nature meets megalithic architecture! They’re made up of soft limestone, which has been eroded over time by wind and water. The result is a series of dramatic natural formations, including high cliffs, caves, and arches. Situated on the western coast of the island, they offer stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea. You can also see similar formations in the more famous Dingli Cliffs where many of the Dothraki scenes from the first season of Game of Thrones were shot. 
You can appreciate the magnificent view by enjoying a leisurely boat ride at Blue Grotte, and then make the trip to Mnajdra & Hagar Qim and appreciate the architecture of the megalithic temples and the peaceful splendor of the nature that surrounds you. The area is the perfect place for those who want to appreciate nature, with fields and the ocean laid out before you. Take a picnic and enjoy the sun setting as it sinks into the glimmering sea.

If you wish to venture a little further afield to find your little piece of Maltese island paradise, then you can hop on a ferry and be on the island of Gozo in less than half an hour. Gozo is smaller and less busy than Malta, which just means it feels like a hidden gem. The island boasts beautiful scenery such like Calypso’s Cave and so many secluded beaches that you will be spoiled for choice. Gozo is also the home to Ggantiji, one of the 6 Megalithic Temples in Malta listed together as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Malta. Simply walking down the coast can be a wonderful way to breathe in the salty air and feel rejuvenated.

Malta is one of the most luxurious and beautiful places to explore, whether you are seeking relaxation or amazing cultural experiences. It is easy to see why it is so popular – which of these tranquil top spots makes you want to make Malta your next holiday destination?
