Fly from Liverpool to Malta

Malta has something for everyone whether you’re a sunbather or history buff, making it an ideal destination for a holiday. Liverpool John Lennon Airport is a great choice when flying to Malta from the north west of England as we offer regular direct flights from Liverpool to Malta Luqa with Ryanair – you’ll barely have to wait for your holiday to start so book with us today!

Why you should go

Despite being one of the world’s smallest countries, Malta is definitely not short of things to do. Good things come in small packages, as they say, and Malta is home to no less than nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, Valletta and seven Megalithic temples, which are some of the oldest freestanding structures on Earth.

If you’re thinking of visiting Malta for its magnificent sunshine, there’s plenty of sunbathing spots where you can spend hours of your time topping up on vitamin D. As well as the numerous resorts around the island, they can also head to the Blue Lagoon at Comino, which sees white sand contrast with intense blue waters – excellent for sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling.

If it’s natural wonders you’re looking for, the Blue Hole and Azure Window at San Lawrenz is a stunning day out. The Azure Window is an amazing natural arch in the sea cliffs, while the Blue Hole is a geological fluke – a vertical tunnel in the limestone, filled with blue water from a connection with the sea. Also worth visiting is the Upper Barakka Gardens in Valetta. Offering a panoramic view of the Grand Harbour, these public gardens are a great way to immerse yourself in the history of the area.

When you should go

Malta is a gorgeous holiday destination all year round, but if you want to spend time exploring the Maltese islands in scorching sunshine, the best time to visit is from April to September. During this time, you’ll also have the chance to attend any annual events that are happening on the island.

Where you should stay

If you’re a first time visitor, deciding what area of Malta to stay in will have an influence on your whole holiday. If beaches aren’t your thing stay in Malta’s capital, Valetta, where you’ll be able to explore this cultural hub in full. Alternatively, some popular destinations in Malta for tourists are the Buġibba, Qawra and St. Paul’s Bay area; a good selection of resorts combined with restaurants and rocky beaches. Looking for some peace and quiet complete with stunning beaches? Try the quaint Maltese village of Mellieha.

Don’t miss!

Malta has so much to offer its visitors, including the following hidden gems:

  • Tranquillity in Mdina – known as the ‘silent’ city, Mdina is known for its peace and quiet. Take a stroll around the picturesque streets and admire the ancient buildings for the perfect relaxing walk.
  • Popeye’s Village – why not spend an afternoon on the set of Robert Atman’s film, ‘Popeye’? This pre-built theme park has never fully been demolished and the locals have decided to turn it into a characteristic spectacle!
  • Try a traditional Maltese fiesta – normally occurring every weekend from May to September, village residents in Malta come out in force to celebrate their patron saint. From drinks and dancing to amazing fireworks, this is something you’ll remember forever!
