The Maltese Islands are Malta, the largest island, Valetta its capital, and the country’s cultural, commercial and administrative centre. Gozo is the second-largest island. It is known for the high amount of tourists that it welcomes every year, its fishing villages and agriculture. Comino Island is the smallest island and located in between the two main islands, with only one uninhabited hotel most time of the year.
There is no best time of the year to visit one of these islands; it depends on where you are from. You can always fly and get a bit of sunshine even in the wintertime as it hardly rains. In the summer season, the weather is scorching, with temperatures that reach 43 Cº in August, but all the sea breeze refreshes you during the day.
The Maltese islands are the perfect places for holidays and weekend breaks.
