Island’s Profile

Malta, at the crossroads of the Mediterranean, is replete with history and colour. Blessed with year-round sunshine and a temperate climate, it is a popular, friendly destination. It is also possible to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as golf, tennis, and cycling. Water sports enthusiasts will find all they need: swimming, wind surfing, water skiing, scuba diving and sailing. Trekking and walks around the Maltese countryside in winter provide a glimpse of the islands’ innate beauty. Maltese festa, a combination of religious festivity and popular celebration, are colourful and spectacular events that should not be missed.

Geography

The Maltese archipelago consists of three inhabited islands: Malta, Gozo, and Comino and two other uninhabited islands. They lie in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, 95 kilometres south of Sicily and 288 kilometres north of Africa. The total area is 316 square kilometres (Malta – 246; Gozo – 67; Comino – 3).

Malta has neither mountains nor rivers. Characterised by a series of low hills with terraced fields on their slopes, Malta’s coastline has harbours, bays, creeks, sandy and rocky beaches and coves. There are 137 square kilometres of shoreline. The longest distance in Malta, from the south-east to the north-west, is 27 kilometres, and the widest distance is 14 kilometres in an east-westerly direction.

Gozo, the island of the nymph Calypso, is smaller than its sister island Malta. The countryside is greener, more spectacular and has a distinct character. Flat-topped hills dot the landscape, while the coast has rugged cliffs penetrated by steep valleys and beautiful bays. More rustic and quieter than Malta, it is 14 kilometres long and 7 kilometres at its widest point.

The smallest island, Comino, is home to a handful of farmers. Neither cars nor noisy activities disturb the peace. The many bays and rocky coves in Comino, plus its crystal clear water, are ideal for watersports such as snorkelling and diving. There is a regular ferry service to Comino.

Climate

There is no fog, snow or frost in Malta. There is an average rainfall of 51 centimetres annually. Sunshine averages 6.46 hours in winter and 10.11 hours in summer. The hottest period is July to September. Nights are regularly tempered by cool sea breezes.
