Category: Malta

In the middle of a remarkably clear and unpolluted expanse of blue Mediterranean Sea, some 90km (60 miles) due south of Sicily, the Maltese archipelago consists of three inhabited islands – Malta, Gozo and Comino – and a number of minuscule uninhabited rocks. Malta is the largest of the inhabited islands (yet not much bigger than England’s Isle of Wight), Gozo is half its size and Comino is smaller still. The population is around 412,000, most of whom speak English as well as the native Malti.
