Soft and on the inside, crisp on the outside and brimming with melted cheese or a delicate pea mixture, pastizzi shops are dotted everywhere in Malta. From approximately €1.00, you can buy yourself one of these:
|Sphinx – a Popular Maltese Bakery Chain|
|The Blue Lagoon, Camino|
|Blue Grotto, Zurrieq|
I paid £150 (April, 2012) for a 7 day package of flights, transfers and a self-catering hotel (White Dolphin Complex). Hotels have sprung up everywhere on Malta due to the growing popularity of package holidays. I highly recommend Teletext Holidays for those on a budget. Yes, your call will be transferred to a warehouse call centre somewhere in the world and you will be asked to confirm everything over and over. Its cheap and cheerful at its best, go to the website and grab yourself a good deal.
5.) Don’ts in Malta
- The drivers are crazy in Malta. Be weary as a pedestrian as the cars do appear out of nowhere. There are sharp corner turns and steep roads.
- Tap water: perfectly drinkable but tastes horrible. I’d suggest going for bottled water this time round.
- Scuba-Diving in Cirkewwa
- Walking in Gozo
- Kayaking at the Azure Window
- Mountain Biking with Gozo Adventures
All in all, I went to Malta as a one week pre exam break with my sister. It was stress-free, beautiful and just a short flight away from the UK.
- If you are a cat lover, cats are everywhere in Malta.
- We went in April and the temperature was approximately 17 degrees on average. It was a little cold, but the whole island was blooming with flowers.
- A ferry service to Gozo costs approximately 5 euros. You pay for the ferry on your return journey.
- I enjoy the freedom the self-catering option gives you, if you do opt for this, be sure to buy some fresh Maltese bread for breakfast.
- I brought approximately 150 euros with me as a holiday budget. This covered all optional activities such as kayaking and mountain biking, meals, tranportation and shopping.
