If you’re into religion or worship, or you are looking to be divinely inspired before you hit the tiles in your dancing shoes, then the Tarxien Temples are another great place to visit, while the Mosta Church is known to have one of the largest domes in the world. The culture in Malta is impressively ancient, so there are plenty of inspiring places to visit if you want to learn about the history of humanity. More recent religion is well represented, with a substantial majority of Malta’s population comprising Roman Catholics. You can also find a Mosque and various other places of worship in the archipelago. Other religions include Protestant and Orthodox Christianity, as well as some Jewish and Muslim elements.
But what about sun, sea and surf? Malta’s coastal waters are generally extremely clean and safe for swimming. The Maltese pride themselves on that, so you won’t find yourself wading past untreated sewerage.There are some terrific beaches too, and you won’t be disappointed with a trip to the seaside with your bucket and spade. As Malta is a resort and archipelago that is further south than the northernmost points of Africa, it’s advised that you take the necessary precautions to ensure that you don’t get frazzled in the sun, even during the winter months. So bring some sun creams or sun block. You have to take particular care with babies and kids, of course. Also, spare your blushes: Bikinis are worn on the beach and by the pool. If you’re going to wear your bikini into town, make sure you take something to cover up a little. You don’t have to wear your bathing suit in the hotel shower, but use a little common sense so as to spare everyone’s blushes.
