Qawra Palace Hotel in Salina Bay..
Malta has lots to offer and lots of fun things to do. There’s the fantastic Water Park and great boat trips, including being a pirate for the day. Why not try snorkelling, scuba diving, or sailing or one of many activities on offer. A holiday on Malta is as lively or as tranquil as you choose to make it, with charming towns and villages and seafront cafes.
The Maltese Islands have often been called the island of sunshine and history. With a history boasting 6,000 years of civilisation, every inch of its land, its temples and monuments bear witness to past civilisations. For those of you with an appetite for culture, Malta and Gozo are strewn with fascinating historical and archaeological sites, some of which date back earlier than the Pyramids. Visit the Mdina, the old capital and take a step back in time in the Silent City. Visit the new capital, Valletta a World Heritage Centre and great for both shopping and sight-seeing with tiny shops in narrow streets, where you can see craftsmen at work (especially the jewellers making fine filigree silver pieces), churches, Baroque buildings, street cafes and elegant gardens. A trip to Valetta is included in your holiday. The fishing village of Marsaxlokk in the south of the island is pretty and has a busy fish market every Sunday.
There is a great bus network with frequent services, making it easy to see any part of the island. Gozo, Malta’s sister island, is greener and more tranquil than Malta with sweeping views of terraced fields, glimmering shore-lines, imposing churches and a Neolithic Temple. A regular ferry service links Malta to Gozo and we include a day trip to Gozo in this holiday. Malta’s sandy beaches at Mellieha Bay and Golden Bay are about 12km away and can easily be reached by bus.
We will be staying 7 nights half board at the Qawra Palace Hotel in Salina Bay. The hotel is officially rated 4 star but our Mango rating of this hotel is 3 star. Salina Bay is on the outskirts of St Paul’s Bay with a rocky cove. The hotel is situated right on the sea front. The hotel has 3 seafront pools, an adult pool, a children’s pool and a toddler pool. There is a pool bar, coffee shop, hairdressing salon, lounge bar and nightly entertainment programme. It also has tennis court, mini-golf and pool table.
Mango Group Holiday Fun
Our holiday in Malta is coordinated by Lorraine, who lives on the island and organises a great programme of things to do. We include a trip to Valetta by public bus as well as a day trip to Gozo with our own private transfer and bus on the island, making this a great day out. (See the trip guide for a full sample itinerary). Each day after breakfast we all meet up with the Mango Holiday co-ordinator for the activity for the day. Each evening we meet up in the bar before dinner so that we can all go into dinner at the hotel together.
