Family holidays to Malta
If you’re heading away with little ones, browse our family holidays to Malta – they’ve been designed with kids in mind.
Malta might be the smallest island nation in the Mediterranean, but it packs in plenty for families to do. Valletta City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, water trampolines star in the Popeye Adventure park, and day trips range from snorkelling Gozo’s rock formations to taking the ferry to Sicily. A choice of friendly hotels is just the cherry on top.
Why you should visit Malta
Beach days at Mellieha Bay
Mellieha Bay is the most popular stretch of sand in Malta. It’s also the longest. Shallow waters mean that children can paddle safely, while a floating play area keeps them happy. Food-wise, lots of snack bars and laid-back cafés fringe the sands. A great hotel pick is the Hotel Mellieha Bay, which lays out kids’ pools and a family-friendly restaurant right by the Mediterranean Sea.
Travel Malta, Gozo and Sicily
The Popeye Village theme park near Mellieha Bay is the original set of the Eighties film, doling out water trampolines, boat rides and a sundeck. Children will get to meet characters like Olive Oyl, Captain Bluto and Popeye, too. For a day trip that really packs a punch, opt for Gozo. Or there’s always Sicily — it’s only a 90-minute ferry ride away from Malta.
