2. Both above and below sea level.

3. And there’s no easier way to get your tropical vibe on.

Skip the queues and get yourself onto beautiful Comino ASAP.

4. And definitely snap a clear underwater selfie with these bombastic backgrounds.

5. Though you don’t even need to get your toes wet to enjoy Malta’s picturesque bays.

6. And honestly, bays are just as good for your sunset walk as for a relaxing swim.

8. Talking about relaxing – if bays aren’t your vibe, Malta’s bountiful fields can supply the chill vibe you won’t find anywhere else.

9. And the natural valleys can be straight up ethereal.

10. And discovering those hidden gems with someone special just never gets old…

10. …no matter who, or what, that special person is.

11. You can even do a bit of off-roading since everyone’s at home – just make sure you aren’t ruining anyone’s chill afternoon.

12. And while the Azure Window is no more, stand out from the crowd by hitting up the lesser known but just as stunning Wied il-Mielaħ Window in Għarb.

13. But it’s not all just green spaces and beaches – live your best Assassin’s Creed dreams in Malta’s centuries’ old alleyways.

19. And as a literal cherry on the cake, do not sleep on the delicious and affordable food all over the island.

From the best carbonara this side of Rome and national specialities like rabbit and fresh seafood, what else are you waiting for to book a ticket over?
