With the COVID-19 restrictions having impacted many of our travel plans in recent times, you may be looking for other ways to get your travel fix. Luckily, Instagram is a great way to get all the holiday inspiration you need quickly and easily, the only hard part is picking out a particular destination to scroll through!
We think we’ve got a cracker for you though; Malta is as picturesque as they come and home to a number of superb snapping spots, so read on and discover the very best of this Mediterranean island nation on Instagram.
So turquoise, so tranquil, so tantalising. Found on the stunning Comino Island, Blue Lagoon really is a sight to behold, with its crystal clear waters, rocky shoreline and beautiful views right out to the Med, you’d better make sure you have your camera ready as this is a photo opp you won’t want to miss out on!
Hop on a boat for the true experience and take a dip in the warm sea, that’s bathed in hot Maltese sun for many months of the year.
Those from a religious background will be sure to love a visit to St John’s Co-Cathedral, though even those that aren’t would surely appreciate the architecture involved in such a stunning building.
Located in Valletta, it was constructed nearly 450 years ago and designed by the Maltese military architect Glormu Cassar, who was also responsible for designing several more of the prominent building s that can be found in the Maltese capital.
A stunning natural pool setting, this is the perfect place to spend a relaxing day away from the hustle and bustle of Malta’s other busier tourist spots.
Home to crystal clear waters, the area provides great snorkeling opportunities, whilst the flat rocks that surround it provide visitors with the perfect chance to sunbathe and the more adventurous tourists may wish to dive into the sea. A real treat for those looking to settle in a special spot for the day, this has to be on your Malta holiday hit ist.
One of the biggest and perhaps most peculiar tourist attractions in Malta is the Saluting Battery – a place where history is brought to life on a daily occasion. Located way up high, it boasts spectacular views of all that lays below and represents the area’s defence against naval assaults from years gone by.
Gun salutes have previously marked anniversaries and religious feasts, whilst now they’re fired each time the clock strikes midday in what is one of the most anticipated and photographed events for any tourist visiting Malta. Guided tour tickets can be purchased for as little as 3 euros per adult, which is well worth the money to learn more about such a piece of history.
Get your camera at the ready as there’s a true hive of activity all around Valetta’s Grand Harbour just waiting to be snapped. This natural harbour, which has been substantially modified over the years, has a real current day feel to it whilst still retaining the character and history of times gone by.
Simply pick out a spot and watch the world go by, or join a guided tour to ensure you don’t miss a thing and remember to stop by at one of the many amazing eateries to experience local cuisine the area is famed for.
