Malta is known for a lot of things – food, culture, friendliness, history – the list goes on. But one thing it doesn't get enough credit for is its chromatic awesomeness.

Here's all the reasons we reckon Malta is the most colourful island in the Med.

1. Our beaches are named after colours

Blue Lagoon, Ramla l-Ħamra, Blue Grotto (okay, technically not a beach but you get the picture).

2. Our towns are peppered with colourful mini-structures 

Being conquered by practically anything that breathes left us with some perks.

3. We've got boats that could be adverts for primary colours

We dare you not flood Instagram in their presence.

4. And balcony hues that won't quit

Making our streets – you guessed it – super colourful.

5. Colour is the first thing visitors see when they arrive

...if they're coming in on a cruise ship to our stunning Valletta terminal.

6. The Maltese festa is the definition of colour

Our award-winning firework displays are proof of that.

7. Even shopping for food will satisfy people's colour-fix

Thanks to our delicious local fruit and veg.

8. Sometimes we even do whole buildings in colour

How's that for painting the tower red?

Double whammy.

In as many shades as possible.

Yup – Colour Fest. The name says it all.
