Malta and Gozo are an ideal holiday destination. The Maltese Islands have always welcomed visitors since time immemorial, and with the advent of affordable air travel and the subsequent boom of the overseas holiday phenomenon during the early Sixties or thereabouts, Malta was one of the first countries to adapt to, and cater for, the requirements of its visitors.

Today, "Holiday" and "Malta" seem inextricably linked in the minds of many, and Malta's holiday destination status is assured through the well established development of modern holiday facilities. The holidaymaker will find that Malta's new airport is visited regularly by a number of airlines servicing cities all over Europe and beyond, a vast choice of hotels in Malta, ranging from the budget priced three star hotels through to luxury five star hotels, a similar range of holiday apartments and villas for self catering holidays, plenty of car hire companies offering attractive holiday rental rates, and of course plenty to see and do while holidaying in Malta and Gozo - but refer to the appropriate pages for detailed information that does not need repeating here.

Furthermore, several travel agents offer Malta holiday packages which combine flights, accommodation and other extras, and the conservative traveller often finds this a convenient way to organise a holiday. However, for those prepared to take a little more interest, prefer to make their own choices and travel arrangements and take only a very slightly greater risk, the attractions of booking a Malta holiday online are many, since Malta and Gozo's offerings are very well presented to the Internet browser - and the potential savings are great.

Although the peak Malta holiday season is summer, any time of year is a good time to visit the Maltese Islands. If your ideal holiday is more a sightseeing or cultural holiday, rather than a "sun and sea" type holiday, indeed the cooler weather of the winter months will more suit your travels. A winter Malta holiday does not mean missing out on much other than the "sea" aspect of the previously mentioned. The weather is still very unlikely to spoil any of your holiday plans, and the vast majority of restaurants and entertainment venues in Malta and Gozo are open for business as usual - unlike what often happens off-peak in other holiday destinations. Mentioning the weather, you would be very unlucky indeed to get more than two rainy days during a week's vacation, whenever you choose to visit - sunny days will still prevail. The lowest daytime temperature you are likely to encounter in January or February would probably be around the 12˚C mark, but the average is more commonly around 15˚C - very much on the "mild" side. The sea temperature also never drops below 15˚C - what better reason could you wish for a Malta diving holiday, in the depths of a typical, icy European winter!

To conclude - if you are thinking of a holiday, Malta will fit the bill perfectly!
