The Island of Malta Malta
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Island of Malta

Seen from the sky, Malta looks like a vast and very dry plateau with small hamlets of ochre houses strewn around the island. The island is quite small with a length of 17 miles and a width of 9 miles. The highest peak is in the south-west with the Dingli cliffs that rise to a height of 816ft. At the foot of this setting of chalky shades, lies the Mediterranean decked out in its very best colours set against a turquoise blue background.

When night falls, do as the Maltese do and dine al fresco in a little side street or in the harbour.
