Activities allow the discovery of the multi-faceted calm lifestyle of Mediterranean Malta with its superb blue seas and marine life, warm winter climate and pleasant countryside, rich and vast history, natural and man-made heritage, art, culture, language and gastronomy that eloquently displays the strong English characteristics that pervaded the island during the recently British rule.
