An expert guide to a short break in Malta

Telephone code: 00 356 from the UK, followed by the Maltese number (there are no zeros to remove in Maltese phone numbers)

Foreign Office advice: Malta is mostly considered as safe or safer than the UK, except on the roads where standards of driving are described as ‘poor’.

Extra reading: There is lots of useful information on The most comprehensive guidebook to the country is Malta & Gozo (Bradt Guides, 4th Edition, 2019) by our destination expert Juliet Rix. A good holiday read which covers most of Malta’s history within a fictional narrative is Nicholas Monsarrat’s novel, The Kappillan of Malta.

Malta is best known in Britain as a sun and sea destination. There is much more to it than that, but there is certainly no shortage of either.

Emergency services: 112
