Top 5 places to get the best views of Malta

You’ve got to admit, when it comes to incredible views, Malta does not fall short. Seascapes, cityscapes, imposing cliffs; there’s a little bit of everything to suit anyone’s idea of picture perfect.

Since travelling abroad is not particularly feasible at the moment, why not cast your gaze over something more local?

There are plenty of breathtaking views across the Island and we’ve handily listed our top 5 here.

  1. Mdina Fort - There is nothing quite like the view of the fortified, ex-capital Silent City. There are a number of vantage points within the fortress walls, where you can gaze across the Mtarfa fields to Mosta and beyond. The drive up to Mdina is just as spectacular.
