  • Sep 25, 2021 of the most romantic spots in Europe!

Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway, a honeymoon or an unforgettable wedding proposal, the Maltese isles are, hands down, one of the most romantic and versatile spots in Europe. After all, what’s more romantic than a Mediterranean isle with 3,000 hours of sunshine per year?

If you need a little more convincing, here are the top 6 things that you and your partner should do when you visit Malta. 

Visit Valletta’s Upper Barrakka Gardens

Kickstart your day with a coffee at Valletta’s Upper Barrakka Gardens. With Roman-style arches, views for days and central fountain straight out of a Fellini film, the Upper Barrakka is a spot that’s as equally perfect for a first date as it is for a wedding anniversary getaway. 

Visit Mdina

By day, Mdina may be bustling with tourists – but its winding, charming streets are still a delight to explore. By night, it’s a charming, lamp-lit city that’s perfect for alfresco dining at one of the city’s excellent restaurants or a bottle of bubbly under the stars. 

An early morning swim at Riviera

Riviera’s golden sands, turquoise waters and lush hills are simply magical, making Riviera the perfect beach for an early-morning picnic.

Oh – and don’t forget to end the picnic with a quick dip – irrespective of the time of year. You’ll thank us later. 

Watch the sunset at Dingli Cliffs

Dingli Cliffs – Malta’s highest point – is couples’ go-to spot for sunset viewing. Cuddle on one of the benches next to St Mary Magdalene’s chapel and prepare to be stunned by a sky full of stars. 

Dine in Birgu

Birgu (a.k.a Vittoriosa) is one of Malta’s top dining destinations. Its restaurants are internationally renowned for their excellent food and wine menus. They’re also housed within centuries-old buildings, making for a truly unique experience. What’s more – Birgu’s waterfront is also home to an array of restaurants, and dozens of yachts and superyachts that serve as the perfect backdrop for your next set of Instagram photos. 

Stay at Casa Ellul

Located mere minutes away from Valletta’s main attractions, Casa Ellul is a luxurious, boutique hotel that’s excellent for couples who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. With only nine suites, Casa Ellul has an aura of exclusivity that’s ideal for a romantic getaway. Best of all, the hotel’s hospitable staff members are more than happy to cater to all your needs as a couple.
