malta and gozo

malta and gozo

The islands of Malta and Gozo are located a few miles apart in the centre of the Mediterranean, about 60 miles due south of Sicily.

First inhabited about 5,000 BC, the islands have long been of vital strategic importance to seafaring nations and have been settled by Phoenecians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, the Knights of St John, the French and, most recently, became a British crown colony in 1813 until the islands declared independence in 1964.

The islands are year round destinations (though best from April to October) and we are featuring two delightful but very different hotels on Gozo:

Both are ideal for relaxing in the sunshine, whilst the Kempinski also features an excellent Ayurvedic spa that offers yoga, detox and weight loss programmes.

There are, sadly, no hotels on the somewhat over-crowded island of Malta that offer the quality and range of facilities and services that The Healthy Holiday Company seeks to offer its clients.  However, the incredible harbour of Valetta and the ancient capital of Medina are both worthy of a visit and clients traveling to stay in Gozo - who are intersted in art and architecture - would be well advised to make time to visit Malta on their journey to or from Gozo.  Particularly as all flights are to Malta, followed by a 30 minute ferry ride across to Gozo and both Valetta and Medina are short detours.

Weather and seasons

The region enjoys long hot summers and mild winters and should be considered a year round destination.  Because of the weather on the islands of Malta and Gozo, travellers visit to sunbathe almost all year long - except for some of the coolest winter months.  We therefore suggest that the best months to visit are from April to October.
