Keeping the kids happy on holiday is an important aspect of any family trip and in Malta there is no shortage of activities, events and family friendly hotels. Sightseeing and exploration is available in abundance across Malta making it a great destination for all the family.
Outdoors in Malta is the place to be in Summer. All along the coastline you will find multiple venues and centres offering watersports aplenty. This can range from jet skiing, paragliding, fishing and one of my favourites; snorkelling. With safe warm waters, it is ideal for those looking for some water based activities and once you’re done you can sit back and enjoy the scenic views from one of many waterside cafes & restaurants found along the shoreline.
There are many places to visit that are ideal for children. The set for the famous Popeye movie starring Robin Williams was built in Mellieha; today the movie set is open to the public as an open air museum and family entertainment complex that provides a fun day out.
Other attractions include the Malta National Aquarium, Splash Water Park and Fun at Playmobil – This is Playmobil’s second largest factory worldwide and the only production plant where one can actually see the toys being made. After a guided tour of the production areas, you can enjoy the Playmobil Fun Park.
There is no shortage of choice when it comes to guided tours which range from viewing historical buildings to cruises round Malta, Gozo & Comino. Whether you’re looking for an informative, historical day out or to view some amazing gardens and Grand Harbour, there’s a tour that will suit any family.
Sightseeing & Events in Malta – medieval castles, forts, temples, roman ruins, walled cities… these are just a few things to explore. Feasts and carnivals are great family events and through the summer these colourful celebrations take place every week.
Family friendly hotels are a key part of any family holiday. Hotels such as the Seabank Resort in Mellieha (located next to Mellieha Bay – the most popular beach in Malta) or the San Antonio and Seashells Resort in Qawra provide an ideal base for family fun in Malta, with accommodation perfect for children and kids activities and kids clubs to keep the children entertained.
Sun, sea, sand and much more – Malta is a real family destination which is sure to provide those memorable and magical family moments!
