If you are looking for a more quiet and peaceful beach experience, there are plenty of swim zones that are a bit cut off from the rest of the public.

This could be for a variety of reasons, let it be because they are a bit out of the way, they are harder to reach or they are unknown. You can easily learn about these places with a bit of research and asking around.

Culture

Malta has a vast cultural sphere. It has taken a little bit from all around. The history of the island on its own is also something to behold. We have a lot of old medieval fortifications around the island and going in one of these is like walking back through the ages.

Knights Hospitalier built Valletta to fend off attackers after the great siege. Other than Valletta we have Mdina which is much older than Valletta, Fort St Elmo, Isla, Birgu, Bormla and others. These are old cities built to house the rich and defend the country when invaders where seen.

Other than that, the British used Malta as a naval and airbase to launch their attacks on Italy and Egypt during the war. It was also a good location to resupply, rest and continue on their journey. A lot of nations have looked to Malta as a resting ground and a door to both Europe and Africa due to its opportune location.

The history of Malta is something to learn and understand because there is so much. From so many different empires and rulers that it is amazing. Next to 1926 Hotel and Spa there is also Fort Tigne. Now including the locally famous Tigne Shopping complex.

Music in Malta

Other than history, the music and cultural scene of the island is booming. There are a lot of venues where bands can perform and where artists can showcase their work. The Maltese are very proud of what the locals put up. Hence, why locals are the number one supporters of their own art. The culture here is one of the things that has been given life in recent years. And something that surely will continue to grow.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, a lot of this has slowed down. However, this only means that it is a consolidation time for artists and bands. Time to think, rest and see to the future what they want to do. A lot of locals are looking forward to seeing what artists and bands have in store. Obviously, for when it is safer and obviously, more profitable to come out with something.

Final Words
