Hi again everyone!
Last time I left you with some of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Malta, today, I want to inspire you to visit some of its most beautiful rocky beaches, such as the Blue Grotto, which is situated in the South of Malta in the village of Zurrieq.
Blue Grotto is one of the most amazing places in Malta, wherein you can either go for a swim in its beautiful blue waters, or get on a boat ride and visit the various breath taking caves, more information can be found at: http://www.bluegrottomalta.com.mt/.
Balluta Bay, in St. Julians, is another beautiful rocky beach, with a tiny sandy part, which is not only great for swimming, but which is especially inviting for those long romantic walks. A great hotel to stay in this area would be the "Le Meridien Hotel and Spa", which is a luxurious 4 star hotel, check it out at: http://www.lemeridienmalta.com/.
If you like snorkeling, then you must visit the beach at Bahar ic-Caghaq, which is situated along the long coast road from Qawra to St. Julians, and whilst you are there, you have to try one of the specialty ice-creams from the local ice-cream van! Another great hotel is situated in this area, which is the famous Sunny Coast Resort and Spa, probably the best 4 star self catering accommodation on the island: http://www.sunnycoast.com.mt/.
The most famous touristic villages in Malta are: Bugibba, Sliema, and Valletta, the latter also being the capital city. Bugibba is mainly packed in Summer, but it does get a little quiet during the winter, on the other hand, Sliema is busy all year round. It does not only attract tourists for its shopping malls, restaurants and cafes, but also it is a favorite with most of its locals. Sliema is mostly famous for its Island Cruises, mostly those offered by Captain Morgan, which include: the most sought after Under Water Safari, various Harbor Cruises, the Romantic Evening Cruise, the 3 Island Cruise, The Boat Party, and much more. For more information, and to book your next Island Cruise please visit: http://www.captainmorgan.com.mt/
Some of the main tourist attractions in Sliema are: the Teatru Salesjan, which is a center for culture in Malta, check it out at: http://www.teatrusalesjan.com/, the Old Sliema Point Battery, locally known as "Il-Fortizza", which is now being used as the T.G.I Fridays Restaurant, and the Tigne Fort, which was designed and shaped in the form of a diamond, back in 1792.
Next time I will be taking you through the wonders of Valletta, and the nightlife in St. Julians, so check back soon, you really don't want to miss these insides!
Until next time, take care!
