Weekend in Malta

Playsuit: Forever 21

After a 7+ hour flight delay (and then cancellation!) I've managed to stay stuck in London for a few more days -- yay to European summers and extra time at airports to write blog posts! Last weekend I had the most wonderful time in Malta, a beautiful country that is the subject of today's post.

View from our Airbnb

We opted to stay in an Airbnb in Valetta, the capital city. It came to around £40 per night divided by the four of us, which is pretty reasonable. The rooftop terrace is the perfect place for a drink or to watch the sunrise, as it's right off the second bedroom. The golden, narrow streets of Valetta are just stunning and I would highly recommend staying in this area. Our favourite restaurant of the trip, Palazzo Preca was also located in Valetta!

St. Peter's Pool was our favourite swimming spot - you could jump right into the clear blue Mediterranean sea. Bring towels or something soft to sit on, as it's all rocks.



The Blue Lagoon was also stunning, however, it was PACKED with tourists. You will need to catch a boat there from Malta, and then another boat if you want some seclusion. We opted to take a 5 Euro water taxi to the other side of the lagoon where there was less people and a private beach. This was so worth it and made for a perfect beach day.



Make sure to also head to the ancient city of Mdina. The narrow streets are beautiful, well maintained and take you straight into Game of Thrones.



On our last day, we killed some time by the pool in Sliema. Next month I'm off to Halifax, so will be sure to post another update then. Happy travels!
