    Malta shore visit

    by orchid49 Written May 10, 2008

    Favorite thing: Not sure if you have started your cruise. Just back from Western Mediterranean cruise with Costa Concordia and visited Malta by myself. They offer 1 Euro return to the main gate where you can find bus to Mdina. When back to town, you take a walk along the main road and then the same bus back to the port.

    The day we ahored in Malta, we learnt that the 1st president of Malta just passed away on May 01, at 99 years olds.

    Fondest memory: Friendly people

    Parking for Disabled Persons

    by Xemx Written Apr 11, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Parking is free in reserved places for disabled drivers, other than that, you cannot park on any yellow lines. Here is the link to the National Commission Persons with Disability http://www.knpd.org/ If you search for disabledparkingbays.pdf you will find a list of reserved parking bays in various streets of Maltese and Gozitan towns.

    The first time I went to Gozo...

    by Maurizioago Updated Apr 9, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: ...I only had a taste of it.

    I visited the Citadel in Victoria. This is the main town of this island. I stayed into this fortress at least two hours.

    Inside the Citadel there is the Cathedral (1697-1711), three interesting museums; some shops and cafes.

    I wanted to see some other nice places on this island, but unfortunately buses in Gozo are not as frequent as in Malta.

    Well, after having visited the Citadel I caught a bus to Nadur. This is an ordinary village with no restaurants and some bad looking bars. From there I walked to the harbour.
    When I arrived there I ate an hamburger; had a drink and I came back to Malta early in the afternoon.

    If you want to go to Gozo; plan your trip carefully and ask for the timetables at the main bus station in Victoria. Visit the Citadel in the afternoon.

    San Anton Gardens.

    by Maurizioago Updated Apr 9, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: These beautiful gardens were laid out by Grand Master Antoine de Paule between 1623 and1636 as grounds to his summer palace.

    Here you can stroll among exotic plants, fruit trees and statues. There are also some aviaries.

    Into these gardens there is the residence of the President of Malta.

    San Anton Gardens are located in Balzan.

    Sandy beaches in Malta

    by ROCKARIA Written Mar 26, 2008

    Favorite thing: Hi Michal,Considering that september is the most busiest time in Malta for sandy beaches one can always find parking on the northern sandy beaches before 9.00am.After that time one have to drop off the passengers on the beach and park further away for about 200 mtrs or so.
    Regarding Hired cars in Malta its quite safe but as per anywhere else sometimes Hired cars are targets in sandy beaches, to avoid items getting stolen especially from a hired car do take any valuables with you and lock any large object in the trunk.Even on the beach always keep an eye on the items.This is normal procedure in every country i suppose.

    The main Sandy beaches are Golden bay,Mellieha bay & Paradise bay.
    Especially in Golden Bay watch out when the sea is rough the waves could be dangerous and drag you out unexpectingly due to underwater currents.If one stays in shallow water then it should be ok.
    Hotels near these beaches are Golden Bay : Radisson Sas Golden sands, Mellieha beach : Mellieha Bay Hotel and also Seabank Hotel which is right up the seafront.
    Strollers are generally no problem on buses as the locals are using them as well to get about.The street as well should be fine except for a few potholes!
    Especially for Toddlers take care with the strong sun in September,Always with a hat,sun protection and a beach umbrella.Try to avoid leaving the toddlers playing in the sun on the sandy beach but place them under an umbrella.
    Hope you enjoy our Island and please do contact me should you request any more info or help...enjoy

    Rural Gozo

    by iwys Updated Feb 10, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: One of the nicest things to do in Malta is walk in the countryside of Gozo. On the main island of Malta there really isn't much pretty countryside left, but on Gozo, where there has been considerably less urban development, there is. Only 30,000 people live on Gozo and many of them are farmers.

    Maltese Windows

    by iwys Updated Feb 10, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: You can see the strong influence of Arab architecture in Maltese buildings, especially the windows, which jut out into the narrow streets in order to catch the breeze during the hot summers. These are like the Arab mashrabia windows, except that they have panes of glass rather than wood latticework and shutters.

    Local wine

    by nigelw6443 Written Dec 15, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I found that in most restaurants the wine list did not offer open wine. The first night out I had bought a bottle and it cost around 6 Maltese. However, if you ask for local wine it will come in a carafe and cost at least half the price!

    The island of Gozo

    by sunchasers Updated Aug 28, 2006

    Favorite thing: Most people who come to Malta stay on Malta. However, after our trip, we would probably recommend staying on the island of Gozo (or at least spending a few days on Gozo). It's a much more laid back and somewhat prettier island in our opinion. Also, if you like things like hiking or scuba diving, Gozo is a nice choice.
