Why Malta

Living in Malta has a lot to offer: besides a perfect balance between your job and a healthy lifestyle, here you'll find a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the pleasurable Mediterranean climate.

Malta’s nightlife has its centers in the areas of Paceville and St.Julian’s, which are famous among tourists and locals for their entertainment possibilities. Here you’ll find plenty of discos, lounge bars and clubs where you can spend the night and have fun with friends and colleagues. Most clubs have free entrances and are open until 4 am.

Malta has been defined as “Mediterranean cocktail”: catholic churches overtopping small villages with their tower bells, a language that sounds like Arabic with a mixture of French, Italian and English words, and food habits deeply rooted in the Sicilian and North African culinary traditions. European history and culture seem to have found here a sort of catalytic center. Malta is also home for temples, some of the most famous prehistoric sites of the world and the underground necropolis of Hal Saflieni Hypogeum which dates back to 3.000 BC. This ancient history is well preserved even in many aspects of Malta’s daily life: the fishermen still use to paint the prows of their boats with eyes, as the Phoenician used to do several millennia ago.

All over the island you will find plenty of open air markets were the locals gather to catch up with neighbors and stay updated with local news. Each small village has its own different market. The Sunday Fish Market of the traditional fishing village of Marsaxlokk is an attraction you shouldn’t miss if you want to delve into Malta’s local life.

One of the most beautiful natural attractions of Malta are the sheer cliffs made of sedimentary rock that rise from the water on the western side of both Malta and Gozo: an impressive must-see for every nature-lover! The island presents also a trio of natural gems: the Azure Window (a limestone natural arch on the island of Gozo), the Inland Sea or Qawra in Maltese (a lagoon of seawater) and the 60-meters high islet called Fungus Rock. Geology lovers will find caves with really rare and interesting rock formations to explore, while snorkelers and divers will have the chance to admire one of the most extraordinary landscape of the Mediterranean sea around Malta, Gozo and Comino.
