Malta: golden sands

Holiday ideas

Itinerary: Mediterranean Meditation.

Details: Indulge in a stay at the five-star Radisson Golden Sands Resort & Spa in Malta’s exquisite Golden Bay. The perfect base from which to explore this small yet intriguing island, the resort boasts access to one of Malta’s most picturesque and pristine beaches, and a host of first-rate amenities.

With Golden Sands as your restful retreat, why not experience several holidays in one and sample a little of everything the beautiful island of Malta has to offer. Start your vacation relaxing at the resort, soaking up the warm rays and visiting nearby restaurants to enjoy an eclectic mix of Mediterranean cuisine al fresco. Later in your stay, join one of the many organised wine tours to sample some award-winning local varieties.

The Maltese Islands are steeped in culture and history. Take a couple of days to really explore this unique archipelago and discover World Heritage Sites such as the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum to the south of Malta, and the Megalithic Temples on the neighbouring island of Gozo. Or if sport is more your activity, take the plunge at one of the island’s numerous dive sites in the clear waters of the Mediterranean – maybe even get your Open Water certificate whilst on holiday.

Malta has a strong tradition of music and the arts, so why not plan your trip to coincide with one of the many cultural events throughout the island such as the Summer Malta Arts Festival and the International Jazz Festival, to name just two. Then take a break from the tourist trail and let yourself be pampered back at the resort – the five-star spa facilities won’t disappoint.

Summary: A luxury spa break incorporating visits to major heritage sites and tourist attractions throughout the Maltese Islands.
