I lived on the sunny rock called Malta for around 1.5 years and I regularly get asked for tips and recommendations when it comes to people visiting the island. So below is my short guide to the island and what I recommend.




If you go to the Island you must try the below, there are really great places and they are all completely different. This helps you get a sense of the culture of the island (sorry no Maltese restaurants)


Best Cannoli - Busy Bee Cafe 


Amazing Mezza - Ali Baba


Really Great Homemade Mozzarella - HiMù


Tasty Meat and an Experience - Sciacca Grill 


Really Great Quality Food - Wigi's Kitchen


Great Plastizzi - Crystal Palace


Places to Visit

I can highly recommend the following places to visit to get a sense of the island 


Walk around the Capital City - Valletta 


Watch the Mid-day Gun (everyday at 12:00) - The Saluting Battery 


Visit the Island’s first capitol and a firmiliar TV set - Mdina


Walk Around the Citadel in the Capital of Gozo - Victoria 


Wander the Beautiful Streets of the Three Cities -


Other Recommendations

- Avoid using the White Taxi’s where possible, use ecabs as they charge fair prices and usually have good service -

- Get a bus card for the duraction of your visit. When I lived in Malta all buses go to and from Valletta and this usually serves as a good base -
