Visit Malta. Malta is one of my favourite countries in Europe – it is beautiful, its people are friendly and it has the Blue Lagoon!
I have visited 5 times so far and it is an odds on favourite for a retirement destination in the future!
There is so much to do and see on all the islands. Malta the largest island has the beautiful city of Valletta with its natural harbour. In the south of the island the villages of Marsacala and Marsaxlokk are lovely places to stay with the wonderful Sunday fish market a real treat.
The towns of Mdina and Mosta are must visits. Mdina is the old capital and a medieval town with fantastic walls. Mosta has its famous church (with the huge dome).
In the north of the island is Mellieha Bay which is my favourite place to stay as it is close to the Blue Lagoon on the island of Comino. It is also close to the port to catch the ferry to Gozo for day trips.
Gozo with its capital Victoria (Rabat) is smaller and greener than Malta.
Comino is a tiny island between the two larger islands and is a fantastic place for a day trip. The Blue Lagoon and Crystal Lagoons are my favourite places (so far) to swim in the world. The beautiful crystal clear waters and guaranteed summer sunshine make a visit to Malta a guaranteed success.
