Escape to the Med

Ah, Malta... the gem in the Mediterranean, the all-rounder, home of beautiful beaches and dramatic coastlines, plenty of stunning ancient towns for the history buffs and miles of trails and mountain scenery to explore by bike. Malta is the perfect playground for a family adventure.

The Family Adventure Company has joined up with Family Traveller to offer an exclusive competition to Family Traveller readers: you could be in with a chance to win an eight-day adventure in Malta and Gozo, one of the best-kept secrets in the Med. This adventure is perfectly balanced for active adventurers types and families in need of a little relaxation.

Eat, play, explore

Make a huge splash in Sliema's waterpark – great for kids; follow in the footsteps of the Crusaders in the streets of ancient Valletta, Malta's capital, and bring your history textbooks to life in the medieval town of Mdina.

You’ll catch a boat across to the stunning island of Gozo, only eight kilometres from Malta, but worlds apart. Discover the quaint hilltop villages on a jeep safari, live like a local Xlendi shepherd, herding the sheep, and try your hand at traditional Gozitan cheese-making. Or, if you’re looking for a less active, explore the many secluded bays and perfect swimming spots dotted along the Gozitan Costline.
