A bloggers guide to Malta..

For Nightlife…
Head to Paceville and St Julians, the main areas well known for bustling nightlife.
It is dotted with clubs, bars, restaurants, casinos and lounge bars.
Head to Havana to party till the wee hours! With a choice of six bars and two dance floors as well as having some of the world’s most famous DJ’s perform live.
Twenty-two is certainly worth a visit for the best nightlife and panoramic views, it doesn’t come much better than this chic venue.

For Heavenly Beaches…
One of the most stunning beaches in Malta is the Blue Lagoon. Situated on Comino Island, this beautiful beach is definitely worth a visit! You can take a short boat ride over to see for yourself the crystal clear blue water of the sea, the real famous jewel of the Maltese islands.

Head to the beautiful sandy beach known as Golden Bay. This is by far one of the best beach on the island for sand and sun. The water is blue and the scenery to the north and south is gorgeous.


TIPS AND ADVICE: How to get there?
Public transport to Golden Bay is very easily accessible with the bus stop only being a 5-minute walk away from the beach.
From Valletta: Buses 44 – every 30 minutes from 05:45 to 21:15
From Bugibba: Buses 223 – every 60 minutes from 07:30 to 20:30
From Sliema: Buses 225 – every 60 minutes from 05:50 till 20:50

For Daytime Exploring…
A visit to the capital city of Valletta is a must-see whilst visiting Malta. From the little narrow streets, gorgeous architecture and buildings, the city offers a wide range of sights attractions, palaces and grand churches.
Visit the Upper Baarakka Gardens, one of the best places for scenery and picturesque views. If you’re a popular picture shooter like myself then make sure you are camera ready for some perfect snaps!
Visit the little medieval town known as Mdina better known as the silent city! Step back in time to over 500 years ago and every element is still century-old buildings, fortified walls and quaint cobbled streets. If you are a game of thrones fan or a history fanatic then this is the perfect spot for you!

For Delicious Cuisine…
Tal-Ingliz Restaurant (Mgarr)
Traditional Maltese food. Out of everywhere we went, this was the best restaurant in Malta to find local favourites such as the traditional dish rabbit.
Himu Restaurant
HiMù is a restaurant, a cheese factory and a mozzarella bar standing for ‘High-quality Italian Mozzarella” The pizzas are traditionally wood-fired and the fresh mozzarella on top is delicious!
Fontanella Café
Exquisite cake and a marvellous view of the Maltese countryside, located in Mdina.

Where I stayed
Western Dragonara
I stayed at the stunning 5-star Western Dragonara. If you are seeking luxury and 5-star service then this is the hotel to be! The Westin Dragonara Resort offers 29 luxury suites which are located in their own private annex, separate to the main hotel and are located right on the water’s edge. With Paceville only being a 5-10 minute walk away the Dragonara is close enough to walk to the nightlife and hit a night on the town however also secluded enough so guests do not suffer from the noise. The best of both worlds!
Enjoy 7 nights, Bed & Breakfast from approximately £1127 per person (This price was based on the 10th of June 2019) flying from Stansted priced with Jet 2.
