The Maltese archipelago – the main island Malta, the smaller Island Gozo and the tiny Island Comino – is a real paradise for divers and snorklers. These islands have fortunately retained their natural state due, to a large extent, to the sea and its fauna. On this historic island one finds the Royal Malta Golf Club. The course is set in a unique sports complex that encompass an eighteen hole golf course, seventeen tennis courts, five squash courts, mini-golf, two billiard rooms, an open air swimming pool, a cricket oval, a polo field centre, a restaurant and an air-conditioned bar.
To really appreciate the countryside at its best, nothing compares to horse riding as a way to explore the byways of Malta and Gozo. The good way to cover ground if you have only a short time on the islands, you will have to try the four wheels, the “jeep safaris“. You will be accompanied on a journey which takes you off the beaten track to enjoy the coastline and views.
For those who prefer nature’s own power, winsurfing and sailing is a must in Malta. The island has been a maritime base for centuries and nowhere will you find sailing more exciting than in Malta today. The mild climate means that you can haul up sail all year round.
