Through the ups and downs of living on the tiny rock we call home, one thing is certain – there’s just so much Instagram potential. Since launching, Lovin Malta has amassed an incredible 72,000 likes on our Instagram posts, and many of them are on the beautiful shots of Malta that y’all snapped.
Here’s a quick look at the top nine most liked shots for 2016.
9. Clear seas at Mġarr ix-Xini
You’d be fooled into thinking that this was taken during the height of summer, but this was actually last October! Kicking off the list in beautiful style, this photo racked up an impressive 656 likes to this day.
8. This impressive sunset
How’s that to inspire some proper wanderlust? A great snap to show off this island’s beauty even when storm clouds start to gather.

A breathtaking view of the capital’s bastions during October’s Global Run Valletta. It doesn’t get any awe-inspiring than that.
