First 2 days in Malta and it's hot! Been to Popeye Village yesterday and Blue Lagoon, Comino today. It's the week of the Santa Maria Festival ? so its extremely busy and public transport is rammed but what an amazing and friendly place!

Unfortunately I can't post photos from my phone but I can see why people return to the
islands after their first trip!
Love the place already!

Glad to see you are liking it Chris.

Public transport in Malta is always rammed, no matter what time of year.

The Maltese seem to have a festival at just about any time so the chances of catching one is always high. When we last went in April there was a Festa in Rabat the old capital of Malta. That is one place you need to go as well is Mdina the silent city. Walk all the way to the dirty great wall at the far end of the village, and look out over most of Malta. From there you can see the dome at Mosta and Taqali airfield where the flying club is.

It is a lovely place but sadly I am not going to make a second trip this year. Family wedding got in the way of that one.

nice place there Chris and nice people, we're booked again for next year. Worth a visit to the aviation museum(not far from the main model flying site)make sure your in Valetta one day at 12.00 when they fire the large cannon. And don't have too many btle's of Cisk...or you'll fall over/not...

Been to Hagar Qim and Mdina today. Walked all the way through to the wall like Kev suggested. What a view! 😀

Cisk reminds me very much of Skoll but Kinnie is something else! I think I'm addicted to it now. Fortunately they sell it on Amazon...

You enjoy Ken.

We are going the other way this year but not until June. Yep first time staying in Sliema.

I think we will miss our regular hotel, but we will see. Last time we went there was a lot of work being done. You will have to report back.

I doubt we will get our normal two visits this year as we have splashed out on a September jaunt. Hong Kong Vietnam and Singapore. No EU worries there.

Enjoy.

Am presently holidaying in Malta. Talking of Rabat, I strongly recommend that on a sunny day you lunch on the large terrace of I'l Vedura, good polite friendly service, good food, lovely pizzas for example and reasonable prices. The view from the terrace is stunning.

Enjoy

looks like Malta has been spared our visit for the time been due to the CV pandemic...….I've been in touch with the hotel people and told them to look after Malta until this has been and gone....stay safe everyone in Malta.

Don't hold your breath and think yourself lucky if Ryan Air are still around in June.
