Malta, Valletta Guide (B): Shipwrecks & Blue Lagoons | Malta

A tiny island country south of Sicily and east of Tunisia, stepping into Malta is like a stepping back in time. With incredible old, historic buildings, surrounded by sparkling blue Mediterranean waters and densely populate city areas, it is a very unique place to venture to for a vacation. I was lucky to spend 3 days here, fulfilling my longtime dream of going to Malta, with my wonderful friend Josh, who is a native Maltese!

The capital city of Malta, located right on a huge harbour, full of beautiful, old buildings. We walked through the narrow streets, past the parliament and other official government buildings, and the Upper Barrakka Gardens, free public gardens that had a beautiful view of the water, Silema and parts of Valletta.

A modern, touristy part of the island, this is the part of Malta that we stayed in. Everything is walkable, with huge stretches of bars and restaurants in the main plaza. There are also different swimming points, harbours full of boats and lots of activities for anyone looking to enjoy their vacation.
