Nestled in the heart of the Mediterranean, Malta emerges as an enchanting honeymoon destination, blending rich history, cultural charm, and stunning landscapes with a romantic atmosphere. We recently experienced this charming city ourselves and highlight some of the many things you can do while on a honeymoon in Malta.
Valletta: Full of History
We stayed in Valletta which was a perfect place to start our tour. This city, brimming with Baroque architecture, historic sites, and quaint streets, invites couples to explore its heritage. Key highlights include St. John’s Co-Cathedral and the serene Upper Barrakka Gardens, offering panoramic views and a tranquil setting for a romantic stroll.
The Charm of Barrakka Gardens
The Upper Barrakka Gardens, a verdant oasis, offers breathtaking views over Valletta and its harbor. The daily noon cannon salute is a spectacular tradition, providing a unique photo opportunity. These gardens, rich in history and beauty, are perfect for a peaceful break amidst the bustling capital.
Mdina: The Silent City
Our time in Mdina, Malta’s medieval gem, known as “the silent city,” was short but we enjoyed exploring the maze of narrow streets and baroque architecture. Lit by lamps at night, its romantic ambiance is unparalleled. Couples can delve into history, exploring palaces and treasures, and experience the noble heritage of this ancient walled city.
Marsaxlokk: A Seaside Romance
The traditional fishing village of Marsaxlokk is a picturesque setting for a romantic seafood dinner by the waterfront. Its harbor, lined with colorful fishing boats, presents an authentic slice of Maltese life and a perfect backdrop for memorable moments.
Dingli Cliffs: Sunset Wonders
For nature lovers, a walk along Dingli Cliffs, especially at sunset, offers a serene experience. The cliffs, standing tall above the sea, provide stunning views and a sense of solitude, making it an ideal spot for couples to enjoy nature’s beauty together.
Ferry Journeys: Exploring Surrounding Cities
We enjoyed a ferry trip from Valletta to the Three Cities and Sliema – this is a delightful way to explore the area. The Three Cities, steeped in history, and Sliema, a hub for shopping and Instagram-worthy spots, are easily accessible by ferry, offering a scenic and enjoyable way to discover the areas around Valletta.
Luxurious Honeymoon Suites
For the ultimate romantic experience, consider staying in a honeymoon suite in one of Malta’s exquisite boutique hotels or resorts. These luxurious accommodations offer the perfect setting for a romantic and memorable honeymoon. We stayed at the the Rosselli AX Privilege which was just perfect in terms of location and the hospitality.
Malta, with its blend of historical allure, scenic beauty, and Mediterranean charm, promises a honeymoon experience filled with romance, discovery, and unforgettable memories. It is a great escape for those who are married already but need some alone time with each other.
