Welcome to Malta

The Republic of Malta is located in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and North Africa. It is an archipelago consisting of 3 inhabited islands (Malta, Comino and Gozo), as well as a number of uninhabited islands, known for their sunny weather and attractive beaches.

Malta is known for its large variety of beautiful landscapes and extraordinary natural attractions. Some of these popular natural attractions can be found on the Maltese Islands, such as the popular Inland Sea and Fungus Rock.
