Southern Malta


Most of the South of Malta is out of the standard tourist trail. This is the working-class and less affluent region of the island and no major hotels are to be found here. However, dismiss the region at your own peril. The villages here are the soul of Malta and a well-timed visit to coincide with a lively village 'fiesta' can be the cherry on your vacation.

Each village has its own parish church and adjacent square where the locals meet up to exchange gossip or simply waste away the days watching the world go by.

The South also has its own set of must-see tourist attractions including the Megalithic temples, traditional fishing villages and spectacular sea caves.
