The Complete Guide To Malta With Kids - Part 1
"Niezwykle popularna wśród turystów, piaszczysta plaża, usytuowana w zatoce wychodzącej z parku narodowego Il-Majjistral Nature and History, którego nazwa z kolei wywodzi się od północno-zachodniego wiatru powodującego w tym rejonie silne prądy morskie. Czerwona flaga na plaży ostrzega wówczas turystów, aby zażywali kąpieli tylko w płytkich wodach. Woda, jak niemal wszędzie na Malcie jest krystalicznie czysta i ciepła, piasek złocisty i drobny, imponujące widoki oraz wiele udogodnień przemawiają za tym, aby spędzić tu miło czas."
"A broad sandy beach well described by its name, Golden Bay is flanked by pristine cliffs to one side and a modern five-star resort hotel – Radisson Blu Resort and Spa, Golden Sands – to the other. There's plenty of space for beach games, except on summer weekends when it can get very crowded. Clear blue Mediterranean waters lap a fairly steeply shelving shore allowing proper swimming close to the beach."
"Or St. George's beach - a sandy public beach, located in the Bay of St. George, near the famous party area of Pacheville, on the North side of the coast of St. Julian's. St. George beach is small, but has all the necessary beach infrastructure. On the beach coarse sand of gray color, floorings for movement are equipped, there are sun beds and sunshades, beach cafes, toilets and rubbish bins, during a high season on the beach rescuers are on duty."
"A 5km hike west along the coast from Marsalforn is the narrow, cliff-bound inlet of Wied il-Għasri. Here a staircase cut into the rock leads down to a tiny shingle beach at the head of the inlet. It's a gorgeously picturesque place and there is good swimming and snorkelling when the sea is calm, but it's best avoided in rough weather when the waves come crashing up the narrow defile."
"Bugibba beach is a man-made sand spot for sunbathing or taking a swim from. The pictures below were taken in April (2018) when it was being renovated. In the summer, there is also a beach club Nine Lives (link) and a couple of small jetties to make it easier to go swimming."
"Piccolo Padre is an Italian restaurant on the border between St Julian’s and Sliema. Technically it’s already Sliema, but it feels like you’re still in the centre of St Julian’s."
"Located in the periphery of St. Julian’s, lies a gastronomic experience that has in recent years established itself as the leading dining location for modern Mediterranean cuisine and molecular cocktails in Malta."
"Made possible by BirdLife Malta, the oldest environmental organization in Malta, this reserve is located on the outskirts of Mellieha, right across from the beach and it’s a great place to learn more about the local flora and fauna, go for a short hike, do birdwatching, and look for chameleons. This is a perfect length hike for little legs–it’s a single path that’s a little under a half mile one way–and the promise of finding chameleons will keep kids very interested. We saw several chameleons every time we visited the reserve (by walking slowly and looking hard!) and the kids loved it."
"A post shared by Lydia Pace (@onepaceatatime) on May 22, 2019 at 5:57am PDT. Għadira Nature Reserve, nestled in the valley just behind Mellieha Bay, consists of seven hectares of brackish lake and saltmarsh habitat. Permanent water habitats like this one are quite rare on the island due to the long, hot summers."
"Walk along the city walls to the Upper and Lower Barrakka Gardens and enjoy the stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and the Three Cities and take the time to visit St. John’s Co-Cathedral and marvel at its impressive facades and collection of paintings by Caravaggio. Pop in for lunch at Submarine, where you can get a fresh, made-to-order sandwich for a good price before catching the ferry to the Three Cities."
"Malta is home to a huge number of churches, but perhaps the most important is St. John’s Co-Cathedral. Situated near the center of the city, while the exterior of this cathedral may look fairly plain, it holds a wealth of treasures inside. Built by the Knights of St. John back in the 16th century, the lavish interior reflects the power of the order and the emphasis they placed on their religious beliefs."
"Functional in design but lavishly decorated, the Order of St. John's own church (1578) is Malta's most important treasure. The Knights'…"
