Malta is an ideal destination especially for families. On the one hand Malta has a climate that suits young and old people likewise; on the other hand, it is a destination easy to reach from all European countries. Families can relax at the many different beaches, either sandy or rocky, wander through the beautiful nature, have a picnic, visit the sights or enjoy the choice of entertainment.
The perfect location to stay as a family is Mellieha since there is the biggest sandy beach of the island and it is away from the busy nightlife areas such as Paceville. Mellieha and the northern part of Malta offer a wide array of accommodations ranging from self catering apartments up to 5 * Hotels directly on the beach, or quietly tucked in the village centre but still very close to the beaches.
The north of Malta is a remoter area where one can find peace and recreation. It is isolated from the hustle and bustle of the Maltese cities but by renting a car or using the vast public transportation options everything is within reach be it a shopping day in Sliema or a sightseeing tour on Gozo or in the south of the island.
